That looks really nice, especially the Wilanów Palace.
I don't like the scrapers in the last pic though, they shouldn't be so close to the oldtown.

What are those things coming out of the front of buildings? Are the buildings unoccupied and crumbling or are they being renovated? Perhaps the one on the left is for security?

Thank you for sharing!!
