Such a shame that Plac Grzybowski - even with it's renovation - is quite gross!

Don't be so harsh. Grzybowski square is quite nice.

I think the square is very successful, but it would have been even more if they didn't include that service road around the interior of it. Not much traffic, but it kind of cuts people off and stifles life around the edges to some degree. Knowing Polish people, they won't let these obstacles bother them Once the old buildings are restored and the ground floors have their restaurants, clubs etc, it will be a real mecca for the neighbourhood.

Although the historic Bank of Poland was not reconstructed in its original form, aside from its footprint to some extent, articulation and maybe its massing is somewhat reminiscent of the original, the interior banking hall has been restored in part to the original with a magnificent overall effect:

original pre-war building:



now (with reconstructed original base course at corner):

From 1920. At one point, this was supposed to be the replacement:



for this (which the Poles took apart):

Also, Warsaw had a Children's Hospital dating back to 1869 (you learn something new everyday). No idea if this building is standing today.

That building is still existing and it is still a children's hospital, even though I'm not sure if it is original or a postwar re-construction. The building on the right is the Staczic Palace on front of the Copernicus statue.

Wow, great to hear that.


Can someone tell me more about this building? It looks like an original, surviving the war.

I had no idea about the "re-design" of the Orthodox Church in front of the Saxon Palace. Interesting, Warsaw could have had a Duomo

I'm showing this picture for dramatic effect but my question is this: were these graves moved after the war or are there people literally buried under the streets of Warsaw today?

Wow, I didn't know. I assumed they were only temporary. Warsaw is really hallowed ground.

sorry rychlik, I mean't it as a question, I don't know where they were reburied...they did not remain in the parks and streets where they were temporarily buried.

I have a general question: are buildings like this protected in Warsaw? This happens to be in Praga.








And what happens to buildings like this?

Very interesting small adaptive re-use project and expansion:









and some lovely interwar modernist restorations:



















Nice to see so many entire streets completely restored

I'm quite certain that it depends on the context of the redevelopment. Some go under the wrecking ball, some may be preserved if it's possible.
