Pre-war Warsaw! (Pre-war images only, 5 image limit per post)

Warsaw, the capital of Poland is renowned around the world as the phoenix city that rose up from the ruins and conducted a reconstruction and rebuilding effort unprecedented till this day.

Nevertheless the great pre-war capital of Poland which was nicknamed "Paris of the North" was due to WWII lost in 90 percent with all it greatest boulevards: Marszalkowska, Zlota, Krolewska, Swietokrzyska, Nalewki, Leszno, Chlodna etc, squares: Plac Napoleona, Plac Bankowy/Bank square (Today a city expressway), Plac Muranowski/Muranowski square, Grzybowski square, Malachowski square and Dabrowskiego square and churches and monuments (to many to list in a single post).

The rules on this thread are as follows:

1. No images limit per post (This city deserves all available images posted)
2. Post only pre-war images of the polish capital (This sites might be helpful: http://www.warszawa1939.pl/index_arc...=caly_plan.php and http://mazowieckie.fotopolska.eu/m23325,Warszawa.html)
3. No political discussions
4. Allways credit the sources you use (images, films and other facts)

Warsaw - A short introduction to the pre-war city.

All images are from fotopolska.eu website



Warsaw, nurturing over 400 years of pride as a capital, is Polands largest city and an economic, political, and cultural centre. The symbol of the city is the Mermaid, featured on the city seal.

Warsaw’s history has more ups and downs than a jejunum. But like the very essence of the Polish character, it has managed to return from the brink of destruction time and time again.

The first semblance of a town only sprang up around the beginning of the 14th century when the dukes of Mazovia built a stronghold on the site of the present Royal Castle. In 1413 the dukes chose Warsaw as their seat of power, and things went swimmingly for over 100 years until, in 1526, the last duke died without an heir. The burgeoning town – and the whole of Mazovia – fell under direct rule of the king in Kraków and was incorporated into royal territory.
Warsaw’s fortunes took a turn for the better after the unification of Poland and Lithuania in 1569, when the Sejm (the lower house of parliament) voted to make Warsaw the seat of its debates, because of its central position. The ultimate ennoblement came in 1596 when King Zygmunt III Waza decided to move his capital from Kraków to Warsaw.

The Swedish invasion from 1655 to 1660 was not kind to Warsaw, but it swiftly recovered and continued to develop. Paradoxically, the 18th century – a period of catastrophic decline for the Polish state – witnessed Warsaw’s greatest prosperity. A wealth of palaces and churches was erected, and cultural and artistic life flourished, particularly during the reign of the last Polish king, Stanisław August Poniatowski.

In 1795 the city’s prosperity was again shattered – following the partition of Poland, its status was reduced to that of a provincial town. When Napoleon rolled into town in 1806 on his way to defeat in Russia, things started looking up – the warring Frenchman created the Duchy of Warsaw and the city became a capital once more. The celebrations were brief however, as in 1815 Warsaw, and the rest of Poland, fell under Russian rule. The Varsovians rebelled against their rulers in 1830 and 1864, but the city remained in Russian hands until WWI. After WWI Warsaw was reinstated as the capital of independent Poland and the urban development and industrialisation begun in the late 19th-century continued.

In 1920 soviet troops where closing in around the city and it was only the victorious Battle of Warsaw (Miracle at the Vistula) that saved the city from soviet occupation (most probably destruction).

The battle was fought from August 12–25, 1920 as Red Army forces commanded by Mikhail Tukhachevsky approached the Polish capital of Warsaw and the nearby Modlin Fortress. On August 16, Polish forces commanded by Józef Piłsudski counterattacked from the south, disrupting the enemy's offensive, forcing the Russian forces into a disorganised withdrawal eastward and behind the Neman River. Estimated Russian losses were 10,000 killed, 500 missing, 30,000 wounded, and 66,000 taken prisoner, compared with Polish losses of some 4,500 killed, 10,000 missing, and 22,000 wounded.

Before the Polish victory at the Vistula, both the Bolsheviks and the majority of foreign experts considered Poland to be on the verge of defeat. The stunning reversal and unexpected Polish victory crippled the Red Army; Vladimir Lenin, the Bolshevik leader, called it "an enormous defeat" for his forces.
In the following months, several more Polish follow-up victories saved Poland's independence and led to a peace treaty with Soviet Russia and Soviet Ukraine later that year, securing the Polish state's eastern frontiers for the next 20 years.

During the last years of the interbellum Warsaw became one of Europes fastest growing cities, at the same time the city became a great tourist destination and soon was nicknamed "Paris of the north" because of the similar architecture and lifestyle in the two cities. By 1939, the city had grown to 1.3 million, of whom 380, 000 were Jews (Largest jewish city in the world after New York City) who had traditionally made up a significant part of Warsaw’s community.

Pre-war Warsaw was the true heart and sole of reborn Poland.

Warsaw´s royal way - Aleje Ujazdowskie -> Three crosses square -> Nowy Swiat -> Krakowskie przedmiescie -> Plac Zamkowy/Castle square Part 1

The Royal Route (Trakt Krolewski), starting from Castle Square, runs along Krakowskie Przedmiescie and Nowy Swiat futher on as far as Wilanow. Its major part includes Krakowskie Przedmiescie and Nowy Swiat – the thoroughfares situated close to the banks of the Vistula River - which used to attract well-off citizens who established their summer residences here. The area was also popular with religious orders which built their monasteries in this part of Warsaw. Thus, nowadays Krakowskie Przedmiescie abounds in imposing palaces and impressive churches with tree-lined squares and courtyards, making this area a perfect strolling destination. It is also regarded as one of the most beautiful of historic streets of Warsaw.

I will begin from the Aleje Ujazdowskie street (Right next to Lazienki Park)

Zamek krolewski - Royal castle

This massive brick edifice, began life as a wooden stronghold of the dukes of Mazovia in the 14th century. Its heyday came in the mid-17th century, when it became one of Europe's most splendid royal residences, and during the reign of Stanisław August Poniatowski (1764-95) when its grand Baroque apartments were created. It then served the tsars, and in 1918, after Poland had regained its independence, it became the residence of the president. Today it is filled with period furniture, works of art, and an army of old ladies watching your every move.

Two floors of the castle are open to the public. Route I takes in the Court Apartments, the Parliament Chambers and the Crown Prince's Apartment, split between the ground and 1st floor, while Route II covers the Great Apartment and the King's Apartment on the 1st floor. Arguably the most impressive rooms are included in Route II, hence the price difference.

Dominating the Great Apartment is the magnificent Great Assembly Hall. It has been restored to its 1781 décor of dazzling gilded stucco and golden columns. The enormous ceiling painting, The Disentanglement of Chaos, is a postwar re-creation of a work by Marcello Bacciarelli showing King Stanisław bringing order to the world. The king's face also appears in a marble medallion above the main door, flanked by the allegorical figures of Peace and Justice.

The neighbouring National Hall was conceived by the king as a national pantheon; the six huge canvases (surviving originals) depict pivotal scenes from Polish history. Surprisingly the ceiling has been left bare. A door leads off the hall into the smaller Marble Room, decorated in 16th-century style with coloured marble and trompe l'œil painting. The room houses 22 portraits of Polish kings, from Bolesław Chrobry to a large gilt-framed image of Stanisław August Poniatowski himself.

Further on from the National Hall is the lavishly decorated Throne Room. The dominant colour here is Regal Red, but there's also plenty of gold trimming, and 86 Polish eagles worked from silver wire. Connected to the Throne Room by a short corridor is the King's Apartment, the highlight of which is the Canaletto Room at the far end. An impressive array of 23 paintings by Bernardo Bellotto (1721-80), better known in Poland as Canaletto (he used the name of his more famous uncle), captures Warsaw in great detail from its heyday in the mid-1700s. The works were of immense help in reconstructing the city's historic monuments.

Overlooking Castle Sq from the 1st floor is the Crown Prince's Apartment. The lavishness of the rooms here are overshadowed by the collection of historical paintings by Jan Matejko; look for his most famous work, The Constitution of the 3rd of May 1791, which shows a triumphant King Stanisław being borne into the castle on the shoulders of a jubilant crowd.

Stare miasto - Old town

Warsaw's Old Town was established in the 13th century. Initially surrounded by an earthwork rampart, prior to 1339 it was fortified with brick city walls. The town originally grew up around the castle of the Dukes of Mazovia that later became the Royal Castle. The Market Square (Rynek Starego Miasta) was laid out sometime in the late 13th or early 14th century, along the main road linking the castle with the New Town to the north.

Until 1817 the Old Town's most notable feature was the Town Hall built before 1429. In 1701 the square was rebuilt by Tylman Gamerski, and in 1817 the Town Hall was demolished.

Since the 19th century, the four sides of the Market Square have borne the names of four notable Poles who once lived on the respective sides: Ignacy Zakrzewski (south), Hugo Kołłątaj (west), Jan Dekert (north) and Franciszek Barss (east).

In 1918 the Royal Castle once again became the seat of Poland's highest authorities: the President of Poland and his chancellery.

In the late 1930s, during the mayoralty of Stefan Starzyński, the municipal authorities began refurbishing the Old Town and restoring it to its former glory. The Barbican and the Old Town Market Place were partly restored.

Nowe miasto - New Town

The historic district of the New Town was formed at the turn of the 14th century as an independent city. The official recognition of the New Town occurred in 1408, when it was measured out from the Old Town by an act issued by Janusz I the Old, Duke of Masovia.

At that time the new city encompassed the territory of the New Town Market Square and streets - Freta, Kościelna, Koźla, Przyrynek, Stara and Zakroczymska. It was independent from the Old Town authorities and had its own vogt, council and a town hall. In 1411 the Parish Church of St. Mary was erected, and according to the 1546 mensuration there were 204 estates in the Warsaw New Town. The largest investment of that time was the Sigismund Augustus bridge built between 1568-1573 by Erazm Cziotko (c. 500 m (1,600 ft) long). Unfortunately it was destroyed in 1603 by the floats.

The disastrous time of the Swedish-Brandenburgian invasion (1655–1660), left the predominantly timber building of the New Town burned, but due to those events many beautiful and more permanent constructions were erected (Town Hall, built in 1680, St. Kazimierz Church, 1688–1692 and Kotowski Palace, 1682–1684, Holy Spirit Church, 1707–1717 and ornate chapel of Kotowski family, constructed in 1691-1694) by the most prominent Warsaw architects (especially Tylman Gamerski).

After 1791, due to the tenets of the Constitution of May 3, 1791, the New Town was incorporated into the city of Warsaw. That is why the inutile Town Hall was pulled down in 1818.
