Maybe Trump can invest in Warsaw now.

I think he said he has some friends in Poland.

I don’t think so. I bet he doesn’t know where Poland even is. He prefers Moscow and Mr. Putin.

I wouldn't be too sure about that just like I wouldn't be too sure about the UK staying together. We have moved into a twilight zone of uncertainty where anything is possible, both good and bad. Trump met with many Polish-American groups during his campaign, so I'm sure he knows where Poland and Warsaw is. His daughter was in Warsaw last year possibly looking for investment opportunities, but haven't heard any follow-up.

Ivanka is not Jewish by ethnicity she converted under a great deal of pressure to Judaism from her now husband's family. Her ethnicity is American (Scottish-German) from her father's side to Czech on her mother's.

Can we now stop this side discussion of Trump, thanks.

4 Św. Barbary (Saint Barbara's) Street:

prewar



post war - before 1970



then the modernists just couldn't resist some changes to make it a really mediocre building



Now it's being totally gutted and restored







Poznańska 37 restoration: the building was already in good condition for Warsaw, but they are also restoring the interior to its former glory and adding an attic floor

2005



now



Holy Trinity Evangelical-Augsburg Church

Recently



Now under restoration







Europejski Hotel









thanks arkadiusz

Mokotów. Many pre-war houses and villas survived pretty much intact.
