Yep. Since the bridge in is northern Warszawa, "Mostu Północnego" probably means "northern bridge". Polish grammar is quite hard for a non-native speaker though.

It is said to be hard, but as soon as you know basics its pretty easy, seems you understand Polish quite well.

But he is Slovak, and Slavic languages are much closer related thanGermanic, or even Romance (French -Spanish). One can basically understand lots of simple things when in writing. Except that west in Polish means toilet in Slovak

There is a simple way to learn polish names of geographic directions - they say us where the sun is at the current time of the day.
So we have the polish words:
"południe" (poł-u-dnie) - "half-day" -> for both noon and south,
"północ" (pół-noc) - "half-night" -> for both midnight and north
"wschód" - "upgoing" (?) -> for both sunrise and east
"zachód" - "downgoing" (?) -> for both sunset and west

Pronouncing Północnego is also different I guess. It's not "Pol-nok-nego" but something like "Puvnotsnego".

północ (poow-nots) - north (noun)
północny (poow-notsny) - northern (adjective)
północnego (poow-notsnego) - genetive case of the adjective "northern"

Yes, I mean it is too hard for German and Roman speaking people understand how similar are our languages.

anyway, we are now off topic but check this

Well, if Google translate wouldn't have existed yet, it would be a big problem for me to read some Polish newspaper articles about your nice new roads...

Something else offtopic: why do you have those completely different names of the months ? And do these names have a certain meaning just like the north/south/east/west example shown in this thread ? Just curious

As timmy2000 said, for May we use a Latin derivative (maj). We also do so for March (marzec). The other ten are traiditional Slavic names that relate to nature. Polish, Czech, Ukrainian, Belarusian, Slovenien and Croatian use nature themed names for the months. AFAIK, Russian, Slovak, Serbian, Macedonian and Bulgarian use Latin derived names.

http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=114558

Post #2 does a good job explaining the names in Polish, Czech and Ukrainian.

[Sorry for continuing the offtopic]

A mianowicie drogę 1x3.
Przed przebudową obwodnica byłą normalną drogą, ale w zeszłym roku doczekała się gruntownej modernizacji i teraz tak oto wygląda:

Wjazd na obwodnicę:


Pojawiły nam się dwa pasy rozdzielone od drugiego kierunku twardymi pachołkami:


Bez nerwów możemy zabrać się za wyprzedzanie ciężarówek.
Proste i skuteczne. Można? Można!


Jakby tak wyglądało co parę kilometrów jechałoby się zupełnie inaczej:




Kończy się dwupasmowy odcinek ponieważ wjeżdżamy na wiadukt:

Widok z wiaduktu na miasto. Obwodnica została właściwie wchłonięta przez miasto. Nie korkuje się tylko dlatego że idzie 'górą':


Koniec wiaduktu:


Teraz zamieniliśmy się z drugim kierunkiem, jadący z Warszawy mają dwa pasy(swoją drogą trochę połamanych pachołków już jest):


Dojeżdżamy do świateł, z których zjedziemy do Kępna:


Tutaj skręcam w prawo, dziękując wam za obejrzenie tych zdjęć

It's no so difficult with Polish but a lot of people cannot pronounced Dutch words at all. Famous huur and so on though

Nice.

When will construction of S17 on the east side of Warszawa begin? I see the DŚU has already been taken.
