I agree. I've never seen this building, it looks amazing. Would be nice to rebuild it.

Actually it still exists, but was stripped of most of its pre-war glory thanks to our beloved commies

Concerning the Philharmonic, it's something worth reconstructing- I mean all the classic elements and some of the interior. It would be a great revival.

I see, thanks. No wonder I never recognized it, it looks like a different building.

Philharmonic in Warsaw was stripped of most of its glory in 1939 when it was burnt in 90%. The existing building is basically a 1953-55 structure, which only randomly reiterates plan, dimensions and parts of the walls of the old structure.

That would require dismantling of the whole existing (and well functioning) building and then creating a new "old" one from the scratch. Not feasible.

What's wrong with the existing philharmonic? It's quite nice and looks almost neo-classical.

It's nothing compared with the old one.

it suits the new Warsaw better of course, the previous wedding cake was really over-the-top like the Opera Garnier in Gay Paris.

But Opera Garnier is beautiful. People are in awe of it.

Wow the original Philharmonic is gorgeous (The new one is pretty sad and nondescript)......What I wouldn't give to see Warsaw before the war! A City that would easily be ranked with cities like Prague and Budapest. What a loss.....

It was never on par with Prague to be honest, Warsaw developed very rapidly before the war but it was also quite chaotic and overcrowded.

with proper restorations of its historic buildings Warsaw might today rank with Prague in terms of beauty and it would have been much bigger by now if its growth was not arrested and sent back eons into the stoneage.

Wasn't Warsaw always the Paris of the East?

No, it used to be called Paris of the North.

But it is now Kishniev of the North. Or Manila of the West
