the city's skyline is fast changing with mostly sleek and beautifully architectured crapers.
Likewise, there is a big chunk of restored traditional (heritage) buildings and that is quite remarkable, 'cause if we look back, Warsaw was almost or totally razed down during the last world war.
thanks bro for sharing your nice photos.

Yes, sightseeing it's free of charge but the palace is not open to the public regularly. More information you can find here.



Today I'll show you two older and few brand new photos from Teatralny Square.

those glassy and sleek-looking crapers are really awesome....
the city's skyline is changing graphically.

One of the best skylines in eastern Europe and the best old town reconstruction in the world!
Are they renovating the oldest skyscraper in the city? I see there's a huge construction crane right next to the tower.

I believe they are but I think they had some financial problems. Not sure of the current status.

Thanks. I have the impression the've allready started fixing the roof. I have a book with old pictures of post war Warsaw. The tower seems to be badly damaged during the war, but was still standing.

After finishing renovation the building is supposed to look like this

I heard some rumors on the Polish forum they would demolish it but I assume it was false?

Let's hope so, this is one of the oldest skyscrapers in Europe. It's not a natural beauty, but I like it. They did a good job restoring it after the war. It should be a protected monument!
Anyway, I see a construction crane and a new roof, so I hope it's just a matter of time... and money...
Thanks for the old pictures MJJ!
