Warsaw: 3 hours trip.

Hi everyone! I'm skansen, and i'm going to present you my recent trip to Warsaw - the capital of Poland. I spent there whole day, but my photos show 3 hours trip around the city center. I come from Wroclaw (check my photoblog from the link above) and i love Warsaw, even the weather was not perfect. Let me show the map first (blue line is the actual "my way") and more than 300 photos after. This map shows the way for the first "extra" hour in the morning and first 54 photos. Please comment and enjoy it! Btw. I'm going to post about 10 photos every day to make the page loading comfortable.

Thanks for your comments! I'll post my photos maybe twice a day in sets of ten. I'll try to not overload single page with photos only, so comments and questions are very welcome.

The weather was bad, but only in the morning, so it's going to be better! This first 54 photos documents my first morning patrol. After that I'm going to show you whole 3 hours trip. The way was planned for me, by my polish SSC friends from Warsaw! Thanks to them!

Great! I liked Warsaw very much! Specialy the culture palace, it reminds me a bit of NYC.

Thank you! It's difficut to get sunny weather in the beggining of march in Poland, but no worries - one hundred photos more, and the sun will show itself.

It looks kinda grey to me, but there are some great buildings in Warsaw though. You captured them well

I know that because of the weather and small area i'm exploring now - it's looking a bit boring, but if you stay with me in this tiopic for next couple of days, you're going to be surpised!

Thank you! Yes, that is quite obvious, if you know the story. That is The Palace of Culture and Science, check in Wikipedia /link/.

I mean that this Palace is really similar to the Moscow building you point out!

So now: the second map - red and green lines are the propositions only, byt blue line is again my actual way. This map shows the route from photo no. 59.



More photos soon!
