Very true! People of Warsaw should be very proud! They had the courage to fight against their invaders although they knew that it was nearly impossible to win.

Thanks for a great thread. It was really educating to see what happend to Warsaw.

Just to comment on all the nationalistic lingo found here. Please remember that not a single german that comitted these horrible acts are alive today. Do not blame the germans of today for something their parents did yesterday. Hopefully all in the European Union will work together to rebuild more of our lost european treasures in all of our cities devestated by the stupid, cruel and absolutely senseless war!

I have a great feeling of admiration for all the work done in Warsaw and hope the city will continue to rebuild and recreate the lost heritage from previous generations. Also Dresden is a project to be admired. May the good work continue!

Right!

Even my grandmother was a child of 8 years during the war, so...

And Warsaw did such an amazing job, recontructing it's old city center. It's exact as beautiful as it was! Something which almost no German city can claim.

Warsaw's Old Town center and Nowy Swiat street are debatable. They were scaled down for some strange reason (they did a similar thing in Poznan). For example 5 storeys tenaments became 3 storeys etc. On top of that communists never allowed full reconstructions (ornaments, sgraffitti, figurines were not included) and existing buildings were stripped down to bare walls.

Also keep in mind that reconstruction involved only a small portion of pre-war Warsaw and majority of pedestrian tracts are gone forever.

Some before and after photos are quite telling...

The Hotel Grand is a cool building:


But warsaw has some great architecture from the 70'ies, too:


You can find a similar building in St. Petersburg! Just look at these windows, they were very expensive in the 70'žes.

Very sad!

The Victoria International Hotel in Warsaw was one of the best hotels in the communistic world! Only a hotel in slovakia and this one, were neck to neck:

Thanks a lot!

This is one, is one of my favourites in Warsaw! Is it a polish construction? Similar buildings were made in those times by the danish and swedish companies and architects


Jacobsen designed the HEW Building in Hamburg:

Did the polish had in the past "architects-collectives"? In the former GDR most projects were realised by those "collectives"!
