Just wanted to know if perhaps I was missing something and post-war reconstruction efforts maybe focussed on the gothic period over the romanesque though i don't recall there being a Warsaw of any true sort during the period

Warsaw actually has a fair number of Gothic buildings in around the old town, in fact many of the basements are gothic as evidence by bricks, pointed archs and distinct vaulting. But it was a small town in the 1300 revolving around the old rynek.

Unfortunately no plans to rebuild the synagogue on the previous site as the 30 storey + Sony building stands there - one of Warsaw's biggest planning mistakes

That's too bad, the Synagoge is/was in my opinion one of the most beautiful and stunning Jewish buildings in Warsaw

Photo of the Week: Poland's Minister of Culture Bogdan Zdrojewski views a painting that was stolen from Warsaw, Poland in 1944 - and today returned to Poland's government via Allyson Lee of Grogan & Company Auction House. Jozef Brandt's "Czaty" (The Watch) was painted in the second half of the 19th c. and was last seen in Poland during the 1944 Warsaw Uprising. In 2012, it appeared in an auction house outside of Boston. Thanks to our diplomats, the painting will now return to its rightful place in Poland's capital.

A number of Poland's wartime losses have been recovered from the U.S., including works by Julian Falat, Jan Matejko and Witold Wojtkiewicz.

Photo of the Week: Poland's Constitution was ratified in 1791 on this day. It's the world's second oldest constitution – and Europe's first.

The photo = the original document, which went on display recently in Warsaw as part of an exhibit opened by Poland's President Bronislaw Komorowski.

Poland's Constitution developed & strengthened Poland's national consciousness – & helped a nation that was later divided among 3 partitioning powers for 123 years.

When Poland was under communist rule, May 3 was removed as an official Polish holiday. But it was restored after the fall of communism, & today Poland & Poles around the world celebrate with pride.

Construction on Liberty Tower set for August launch
18th June 2012

Along with the new Warsaw skyscraper, Liberty Development plans to revitalize a key historical area

Liberty Development hopes to begin construction on its Liberty Tower in August this year after receiving a series of building permits.

Located adjacent to ul. Grzybowska and ul. Żelazna within Warsaw’s Central Business District, the project includes a 26-floor, 140-meter-tall office skyscraper, two low-rise office buildings and the additional reconstruction of pre-war historical monuments in the surrounding area.

“These historical buildings constitute a priceless monument documenting the history of Warsaw and its Jewish community,” said Max Ebenstein, CEO of Liberty Development Poland.
The area is known as one of the 19 former gates to the Warsaw ghetto and has been listed as a historical monument by the Mazowieckie voivodship.

“In collaboration with a local architectural studio specializing in reconstruction and revitalization of historical monuments, we have developed a conceptual design for the full revitalization of the Żelazna buildings,” Mr Ebenstein said.

The design of the Liberty Tower was made by the Kuryłowicz and Associates studio. Earlier plans to build a residential building designed by New York-based firm Costas Kondylis were dropped.
The company hopes to start underground construction this August with the completion of the entire complex expected in August 2014.

Just so everyone knows, the Royal Castle in Warsaw is being revitalized. New gardens and a paint job. Should be nice.









You can see the lighter colors coming through.

At last the gardens come back to life! Any estimates on how long will it take for them to be completed?

Only the upper gardens will be rebuilt and they should be complete by next year. The lower gardens will have to wait until a road is rerouted and ideally when this portion of the riverside highway is buried...the rest is actually buried. a couple of the pics posted by rychlik are actually of the arcades being reconstructed a few years ago I believe and the need to shore up the escarpment side of the castle foundation. cheers
