Warsaw by DocentX (new metro stations and around)

This time I'll show a few shots from the northen part of Warsaw (Bielany district), concentraiting on Warsaw's new metro stations

Pic taken in October 2008

Some facts about Warsaw metro :

The Warsaw Metro (Polish: Metro warszawskie) is one of Europe's newest metro systems and Poland's first (and the only one so far). It was opened in 1995 and consists of a single north-south line.

The line has 21 stations along a distance of approximately 23 kilometres.

Metro Mlociny is one of the Warsaw Metro stations. It became the 21st station of the Warsaw Metro when it opened on 25th October 2008. It is the northern end of the first metro line and also serves as a major transfer point between different modes of transport in Warsaw. There is also a proposed tram link due to be built linking Mlociny with the North-East of the city.

Old Bielany - Platnicza street with original gas lamps.

The electric street lighting system was launched in Warsaw 100 years ago, and in December 2007 marked 150 years since the first gas street lamps were lit in the city.

Gas lamps, lit in the traditional way by a Warsaw lamplighter, create a unique atmosphere along Płatnicza Street in Warsaw's Bielany district.
