Well that first picture kicks ass! From ground level I have never noticed this really cool view before, although I have been in Warsaw a couple of times! Excellent so this is gonna be a 9!
Another point I would like to mention is that all the "old" buildings are newly build after being destroyed by the Germans and Russians in WW2. I think they (the polish with rebuilding) did an excellent job!
But Warsaw has many urban problems, the city doesn't care enough for uran planning and many good skyscrapers are being built outside the strict city centre. If that was not so, this city would have had an even better skyline...
reminds me of london minus canary wharf to be honest, but i love the palace of culture there - one of my fave skyscrapers. very european, lots of spires and rather spread out too. i give it 7 - 5/5 for character and history, and 2/5 for density and height.
