@Earendil- You should know that with PKP (Polish Railways) everything is posible so nothing is 100% sure but.... I cross my fingers!


OK- and now sth very interesting- MUSEUM of WARSAW UPRISING

It will be the most modern museum in Poland (will be opened in 60 anniversory of the uprising on the 1 of august 2004)

No, whoever did the rendering just threw those TGV's in for effect. Polands fastest trains go 160 km/h.

what just 160 km/h thats not fast. Anything going 200 km/h + is fast. I consider 160km/h to be average. Shit even the Via trains in Canada go that fast and its not fast at all.

Next important info (at least for me ) :

renovation of "Kubicki" arcades at the back of Royal castle will end in 2005. Furthermore reconstruction of Royal gardens should start.


Royal castle in XVIII century (view from Vistula river):

Good job updating this thread, DocentX

About the TGVs...yes, there is a project.
Its about building a high-speed line to connect Berlin and Moscow.

The three station along the way will be:
Warsaw, Minsk and Smolensk.


In the future, i'd like to see a high-speed line between Belgrade and Warsaw

Changes to the Piulsudski Square. There are Plans to rebuild two palaces which were destroyed douring WWII. Theres a huge debate on Plish Forum about that. Some people want it rebuild and some want some modern architecture or some sort of war monument on that place.


Now


Plans







There are no decisions made yet.

Another very interesting investment:

revitalization of "Prozna" street- this is the only remaning street of former Warsaw Jewish Ghetto (rest was completely destroyed by Germans)!!!

It's hard to belive but the street is just in the city center (few hundered meters from Palace of Culture).

It looks terrible, but it has it's own special atmosphere:





There is a chance that in few years the street will look like this:

Interesting, and a good idea... the city should seriously consider rebuilding a larger part of the former Jewish Ghetto, if it's possible. Are there any plans besides this street?
It would no doubt be worth investing in a project like that.... think of all the Jewish tourists visiting the place and the amount of money that could bring for Warsaw....
The project for revitalizing Prozna street looks excellent, btw.

the investment in the Prozna Street is worth every zloty.
excellent idea !




I do have a question about the traffic in Warsaw : are there plans to construct a beltway around the city ?
I believe lots of areas are congested today so a long term vision of traffic planning is very wanted.
