I’m always on the lookout for ridiculous street signs whether it be at home or while traveling. I love sharing my finds as well as those from some contributors.
During our recent trip to Poland, Lucas and I were in Krakow when we had to get to the other side of a road. To do so, we had to go down a set of stairs and walk through an underground tunnel, across to the other side (and back up again)….
When we got to the bottom of the stairs, I noticed an odd stick-figure warning sign on the wall. I wasn’t really sure what it meant so I stopped for a closer look.
What could it mean? I doubted that it meant, do not jump backwards off the steps so I looked up the phrase Ostroznie! Sliska Posadzka in Google Translate.
The result I got was, “Carefully! Slippery Floor“.
While going up and down these stairs, I don’t recall them being slippery. (Maybe it is when its rainy out?) And, even if the steps were slippery, I don’t feel that the sign really showed that message in the image!
What do you feel the warning for this sign should be based on the image?

What’s that small/mini staircase to the side?
That’s how you get strollers down there.
Ang- Like BOS_Flyer said- for strollers but it’s a real pain to use.
