Just give it a few years to weather and it should look just like before. I like the new paint colours better though.

Any chance this square will become traffic free? If they beautified it, this would be a great square and meeting place.

Warsaw is long overdue for a major urban square revitalization. Plac Malachowski should be soon and Plac Piec Rogow is a new square that will be created at a major intersection of Szpitalna, Bracka, Chmielna and Zgoda Streets. That may happen late this year or next.

How much of the National Theater was altered after the WW2? The main facade seems original, but the rest of the building seems modern, and I know the interior is modern. I don't know what to think about that, I'm not a fan of throwing in modern styles while restoring a building.

You're exactly right, the main fašade by Antonio Corazzi from 1825 is largely original, the interior has changed of course to a post war socialist realist inspired look while the south end and two new wings along Moliere and Wierzbowa Streets are completely new additions. The building was rebuilt and expanded from 1947-1965 by Bohdan Pniewski who was to Warsaw post war what Oskar Nemeyer was to Brasilia. It took so long mainly for lack of funds. The stage and auditorium were considerably enlarged.

Pre war



Post war



The sculpture Apolonnia from Corazzi's original design but never realized was added about 10 years ago

Thanks for the reply. The modern additions aren't horrendous-looking or anything like that, at least to me, but they still slightly clash with the restored facade. IMO, it would've been cool if they just made a larger version of the previous building, but it still looks quite beautiful. I just hope the square in front of it will be revitalized soon, the impression would be much better.

the stage does stick out a little from certain angles that's for sure. but, this area of Warsaw desperately longs for a revitalized square. fingers crossed for sooner than later.

Not sure what those display cases are for, I would think to display something interesting.

Looks like new basement underpinning and an additional subgrade floor are nearing completion on the Foksal 13 & 15 redevelopment.





thanks Bastian

It has been announced that one of the main exhibitions of the baroque period in the new (under construction) Museum of Polish History will be the reconstructed fašade of the Villa Regia, dismantled during Polish-Swedish Wars. Numerous components of the building have been found on the bottom of the Vistula where one of the ships plundering Warsaw capsized. These elements will be used to reconstructed the fašade.
