I heard that polish fans signed petition to name one of the streets and after two years city hall agreed to name this alley...

You have right, but a whole area below the escarpment are often called Powiśle also, so along with Solec. That's why I used this name in my post.

From East-West Route we have a view on the Royal Castle in Warsaw.



Let's go inside the Royal Castle.

Through the park and Agricola street I go to the bridge



Little closer - view from one side...



...and from the other



On the top of the bridge there is the monument of king Jan III Sobieski





From the top of the bridge, view on the channel, which I showed in the previous post



View in the opposite direction



We see the Palace on the Water in Łazienki Park

First time replying to your thread after a few visits, and I must say that the Polish capital provides a sense of awe and inspiration because as I recall from history, Warsaw was heavily damaged in World War II, perhaps the city which suffered the greatest number of structures destroyed after the German and Soviet air raids. I find it really fascinating, though, that nearly seventy years after the end of the war, the city has recovered tremendously, but not without going through several turmoils during the Cold War.

Among your city center shots, I find this the most interesting and intriguing:

That contrast gives me a good clue on how the city was reconstructed after the war since Warsaw had to be redesigned to bring back its status as the Polish capital: I would suspect that the Brutalist design of the right tower (with a clock tower) was constructed in the 1950s after the Stalinist structures in the former Soviet Union, and that over time, when Poland started opening itself up to capitalist principles, investments have increased that the city center has been rehabilitated and expanded to have the modern look on the left side of the image. With a variety of contrasts, from the massive National Stadium to the micro size of some of your city's alleys to the modern trams that traverse many of Warsaw's major arteries, the Polish capital has indeed given me the impression that over time, cities can always evolve for the better, and I am pleased with the outcomes today.

Superb work, my friend! I have finally returned my favor to you after you replied to my flagship thread on the (San Francisco) Bay Area. Keep up the great work!

Because it is if you count the spire, Palace of Culture and Science is still the highest building in Warsaw aside from chimneys.

It's worth to mention that Palace of Culture and Science was constructed in the 1950's but the clock is called Millenium Clock because it was launched at midnight in the New Year's Eve of 1999 / 2000.

Let's go back to Łazienki Park



Bridge seen from the other side





This building is called Stara Kordegarda (The Old Guardhouse)



And this one is called Podchorążówka (Officer Cadets School)



The main palace in Łazienki is called Palace on the Isle or Palace on the Water...





...and right now is under renovation.
