Most of the people consider Warsaw as a city which contains only huge (communist or modern) buildings. So I want to show a different, a little bit hidden, face. Many old, charmful buildings have survived 2nd world war and many has been rebuilt. So let's look

WARSAW'S SURVIVERS


My favourite old house in Warsaw - Kamienica Ławrynowicza (Ujazdowskie Avenues)

Great looking building on this update! Actually just saw a doc about Warsaw being bombed by the Germans...I imagine how the city would look like if building like the ones in the first pics will remain intacts...

It would be quite grey. Unfortunately this "survivers" tend to be in bad technical condition.

Yeah, they are in bad condition because during communist rules authorities didn't care enough about prewar buildings, they focused on new architecture, creating "new world". But now more and more buildings regain old glamour. Unfortunately capitalism also isn't good for monuments - investors prefer demolish 5-floor buildings and build 50-floor skyscraper. More space, more money. Of course warden of monuments doesn't allow to demolish monuments, but very often investors do nothing and wait until the building get such bad condition that nothing can be done appart from demolishing. MONEY.

Is it safe to say that the Royal Route is one of the best streets in Europe? And of course it leads into the Old town.

Definitely, but it does have other contenders even in Poland like Dlugi Targ in Gdansk and Grodzska in Krakow.

Yeah, I made a mistake because of declivitous roofs. I thought that all socrealist buildings are prisms, I forgot about e.g. Mariensztat. Sorry.

Thanks, this face of Warsaw is very often forgotten, but unfortunately I don't have any more pics of prewar buildings. Next part I can call "Magic of communism" and I wait for a next page. It should start from 131st post and I don't know why it didn't.
