I prefer the look with the visible roof.

This is aesthetically pleasing. Wish it was rebuilt.

You really outdid yourself with this find, rychlik, I thought these were photographs, wonder who this amazingly skilled realist painter is, can't read Cyrillic.

For a moment I thought they were photographs as well. The print on the right appears to be in French (ex. Varsovie). I can only guess the other print is the artists name? It looks like "Rembrandte". Maybe someone can help us out with this.


These are really good quality scanned copies and if they don't belong to an art institution of some kind in Poland, then they're obviously being uploaded online in another country. Meaning someone has access to some nice art work.

Jasna/Zgoda/Boduena/Przeskok/Szpitalna Streets District

Gloomy post war pic (probably early 60's) showing remains of pre-war Warsaw kamienice (tenement houses/townhouses) and the newly built gift from Stalin the Palace of Culture looming in the background. The building in the middleground with the mansard roof (1) was demolished to make way for a commie block as was the building to the left (no other images found). All the other buildings have survived.



thanks serious71

Building 1 virtually intact in 1949. In the picture above the applied art and sculptures were already broken off the building, a barbaric and common communist era practise, so this was a picture most likely from sometime in the late 50's, early 60's. The building was finally demolished in the early 70's.



1970



On the empty area in the foreground, the following buildings stood pre-war:

South Mid-Town District:

Pre-War (built 1883):



Today



New Project coming soon:

NB: This looks a little controversial, not sure how much historic substance exists of this original survivor of the war which was defaced of all its details by zealous commies with nothing better to do. It appears that the all the key components of the fašade will be essentially restored but superimposed over a new building with a glass fašade, sort of like pictures hanging in a gallery. I am intrigued, but if this building is truly historic, I would prefer to see a facadectomy, saving the original fašade and any valuable interior elements. It should be noted that there are virtually no other original surviving pre-war buildings on this stretch of Krucza Street:

A good number of restorations has started or is soon to start in central Warsaw:

This one at Plac Zbawiciela will be restored to its pre-war look as far as is possible:



thanks Ring











thanks Grvl



interesting findings uncovered by archeologists:



and something written by a Nazi soldier about Operation Barbarossa (Invasion by Hitler of Russia)







The building above was modified from it pre-war appearance:



Jerusalem Allee



thanks zyclunt

fašade refreshing:



another add-on is good as it will add density:



thanks Piotrek00

Starting soon in the Powisle District along the Vistula(two additional floors will be added):







current condition:



this one in Praga District will be complete by the end of 2014:



The Restoration and Expansion of the Hotel Europejski continues. As we can see from these images most of the walls except for the northern fašade and corner near Krakowskie Przedmiescie Street survived the war. There are even surviving original masonry works and stucco decorations from 1855:

Pre-war:



Under restoration (note the blackened walls on the interior this is from the inferno that blazed here when the building was deliberately set on fire by the occupiers):

thanks evertonfans2012

Hotel Prudential Restoration and Revitalization will continue after subway construction is completed as it is blocking access. In the meantime enjoy these pics of the largely original interiors provided by Summertime:

Intersection of Bracka and Nowogrodzka to Nowy Swiat Streets:

Today there is a square dedicated to Free Speech (The Free Word) here:



To the right stands the building where the state censors office was located during the Soviet/communist occupation of Poland.



where these kamienice once stood:





Where the dark granite building with rounded corners stands, once stood this:



Where the salmon coloured building stands once stood:
