Some cities could need more pedestrianization as well, such as Bratislava, Paris or Athens.

The big problem is where to put the cars if their isn't sufficient public transit for people. I think that in most cities in Europe, especially Warsaw, it is just a matter of getting people out of this car culture.

Indeed. I was about to add Warsaw, as it's an horrible example of overdone automobile infrastructure.
Berlin is pretty badass as well in this regard, but well, somehow it fits the city.

Is this what you're talking about?

Plus of course tunnels for pedestrians, yyeah.

But his way of thinkink is still believed to be modern here in Poland, let's face the fact that on some fields we're 30 years after western countries and somehow we can't just jump over this distance, it's slow process more in people's mentality.

For example in my city Gdynia, they are rebuilding whole huge intersection without making it any more friendly to people, and in fact adding tunnels tu put ppl underground.

Warsaw have some wide streets and the movement is separeted in the center mostly around the central railway station and there are some estacades so it's visible but you can move through the city quite easily without a car.

I was in Warsaw in May and got an all day transit pass and the new transit map and I must say without exageration it was far superior than Toronto's transit system in getting me from A to B quickly and conveniently. Most of it is surface rail but it moves in its own right-of-way very fast. Some of the streets widened by communists after the war feel inhospitable to pedestrians and are wider than they should be as erbse said it's auto infrastructure is way to big. They could narrow Jerozoloimska and Marszalkowska.

The reason Poles love their cars so much, I think, is because it's still quite rural and the communists did not invest in hardly any effective transit infrastructure while building their Corbusian commie blocks. Now its just a matter of giving back the city to the pedestrian incrementally like in Sopot, which pedestrianized its whole downtown and Warsaw's Krakowskie (Przedmiescie) Street and Old Town.
