It probably depends on relations, but I've spent a significant chunk of my life in Polish IC trains, and announcements were extremely rare. The route I spent most of my time on is Posen-Warsaw, so I'll accept that maybe I just wasn't lucky with the other lines.

Some Inter-Regio trains have announcements too: I took Inter-Regio trains from Warszawa Centralna to Kraków and Łódź Kaliska and the PA systems on both trains worked fine.

Can it really be called a renovation? Is there any structure left from the old station? As far as I know everything is rebuilt, although the roof structure has been replicated.

You are almost correct sir. Some elements like concrete roof are just renovated, some are entirely new.

What? Everything is new, even the roof. It had been built from scratch almost the way it used to be before.

Didn't know that. I was pretty sure they are original one. Nevertheless they look like the old one.

It looks fine. But these ?'pilars'?...I'm sorry but they are terrible. Maybe it's just a matter of taste or something.

They rebuilt the original brutalist design, one of the most prominent examples in Poland. And, like everything brutalism, it tends to be a teensy bit controversial.

Personally I love it when used in huge public buildings, and with lots of either glass (like here) or greenery around to provide contrast, but you can't please everyone :-)

It's great to see that they atleast gave a thought on how to organize the ticket booths. In most eastern-european countrines you have to buy ticket through horrible small windows.

I'm pretty sure that 'language problem' is common in many european countries, not only eastern-european. Btw, Poland is a central-european country.

Last year I was in Dresden and I wanted to buy a train ticket (Deuthe Bahn)... I couldn't do that neither in polish, neither in english. Fortunately I know german a little.

I try to use ticket machines if I don't know the local language - usually they could be switched to English.

Not sure if you can buy tickets in Poland from the machine for long distance trips. At least I haven't seen them at Warszawa Centralna station. Are they in use? Anybody knows?

I don't think so (but maybe I'm wrong). But you can buy a ticket for a bus/tram/local train in the machine. There're planty of them, basically everywhere. Atleast here, in 3City.
