I do not like big train stations. They should be convenient and "metro - train time" under 1min.

The last thing I want when going for a train is to come early to find the terminal and place.

This train station is not big. Functionally speaking it is extremely small, because whole building is directly above rail platforms, and almost no wider or longer than those platforms. And you can acces them from all 4 corners of the world.

In Warsaw the Main Station will be (re)built together with a complex of houses and offices. The station was destroyed during the war.

The former station wasn't completely finished by the beginning of the war in 1939. It was finished in a more sober style by the Germans and destroyed by them in 1945:

JanVL, I think you are confusing two different stations. The Polish-designed art moderne pre-war Central Station was under construction when WWII started and then destroyed by Nazis during planned destruction of Warsaw. Dworzec Glowny Osobowy (the one in the redevelopment above) is the temporary main terminal that was used post war for passengers due to central station destruction but which was a cargo terminal pre-war:

23.05.2014 PKP Intercity ordered from PESA 20 of these 8-cars (150m long) long distance trains named "Dart", all of them should be in service in decemer 2015.
They also ordered 20 of these Flirt 3 trains, with the same deadline.

Together with pendolino it will be 60 brand new, long distance EMUs operating in Poland on routes shown in link you've quoted. Also the classic cars are ordered (as brand new) and older ones are being renovated. PKP IC ordered also 10 of such PESA GAMA locos, but in diesel version, for some shorter, unelectrified routes. Deadline: oct 2015.

It seems I liked it too fast because it's another example when the building was "bunkered" during renovation:
