Funny you mention this. In the late 90s I kept taking the Intercity Lajkonik from Kraków to Warsaw at 6:05am and it never arrived later than mentioned 8:40. The earliest I was at Warszawa Centralna was 8:24, that gives you 2 hours and 19 minutes. This year I took the Krk-Wrw Pendoline and while the seats were much more comfortable I almost felt nostalgic when I arrived in Warsaw in 2h30m

This old building is neither communist nor capitalistic. It's just modernistic. Similarly this new one is not a railway station at all. It's just a shopping mall with railway ticket offices inside
