Is Warsaw's Central Station going to be redeveloped in the future? The station, built in 1975, has become obsolete over its lifespan and isa white elephant.

I wouldn't call this redevelopment. As we know Polish Rail Authorities (PKP) even this plan will end up with just simple cleaning

My friend who worked few years ago at planning stage of Złote Tarasy (shopping centre next to this station) told me about plan of redeveloping station at that time. There was idea of complete demolishing old construction and including new station inside shopping centre. I don't know in what stage this plan was, but he told me, that Rail Authorities didn't want even start to speak about it.

To be honest, I don't regret of this idea, because I don't like shapes of Shopping Centre and simply I affraid how it could look like with station inside.

I have to say that its very true this train station is pretty bad they should make new one that much bigger and better plus in a few years there is going be new high tech trains + train stations the trains will run on a magnet so basically there will be no electricity only inside of the train and train station My dream is that POLAND takes out all the railways makes new ones for the new high tech trains and make new train station ever where in Poland at least in every major city there should be a train station I live in the Podlaskie part of Poland and we have no train station i had to go all the way to Olsztyn to get on a train.

In every Voivodeship there should be 5 train station and 1 big one in the major city of the Voivodeship. This way people in Poland can finally travel like normal people.

If there was a way to redevelop the Central Station, it should have been to tear it down and start over.

Well I only hope that they will 'redevelop' the train station before the European Championships in 2012. Otherwise it will be a disgrace to Warsaw!

Ultra-modern Chopin museum opens in Poland

(AFP) – Mar 1, 2010

WARSAW — A high-tech museum dedicated to the Polish composer and pianist Frederic Chopin opened in Warsaw on Monday to mark the bicentenary of his birth.

"It is among the world's most modern museums," Poland's Culture Minister Bogdan Zdrojewski told reporters at the opening ceremony.

Located in Warsaw's revamped 17th century Ostrogski Palace, perched on a hill near the Vistula River, the museum is designed to plunge visitors into Chopin's universe via cutting-edge audiovisual and interactive technologies.

Monitors, projectors and speakers "allow the visitor to individually choose a route through the museum adapted to their needs and capacities of perception," museum curator Alicja Knast told AFP.

A special card with a computer chip allows visitors to access different audio video elements of the exhibition, and a room with cushions and touch-screens allows children to learn about the composer and his era.

The museum also has a large collection of objects linked to Chopin, including manuscripts and first editions of his musical scores, letters, portraits and personal effects.

Chopin's certificate of baptism indicates February 22, 1810, as his birthday, but the composer himself and his family always gave March 1 as his actual birthdate.

He left Poland in 1830 just ahead of an insurrection by Polish independence fighters against Russia. He first moved to Vienna and then settled in Paris where he died in 1849.
