This is the main artery of traffic in Warsaw. It starts at Plac Unii Lubelskiej (Lublin Union Square) and ends at Plac Bankowy (Bank Square). Ulica Marszalkowska is the pivot of Warsaw's city. Going North from Plac Bankowy you'll see Palace of Culture and Plac Defilad to the right and Sciana Wschodnia (Eastern Wall) to the left. Sciana Wschodnia constitutes a symbol of modern architecture of 1960's. It is composed of long Domy Towarowe Centrum mall and tall buildings righ behind the mall.
An important place in Marszalkowska is Plac Konstytucji (Constitution Square). It's large and ugly but it's also a great example of socrealistic architecture of our city. It's construction was finished in 1952.
On your way up Marszalkowska you'll see Plac Zbawiciela (Saviour Square) with an eclectic church of Christ the Saviour. The church was built at the beginning of 20th century.
Favorite thing: Warsaw has been growing since its reconstruction after World War II. Since the fall of communism new companies started boosting and office space was needed. That is why more and more modern office buildings are constructed in my town.
an industrialized city, but plenty of history too. In the main city you can see the cultural center, it s like a big ben, but very popular, downstairs you have cinemas, restaurants and a disco club. In the old town you have the main square which is amazing!! (believe me). It was all reconstructed after the 2WW, because it was totally destroyed, but it looks amazing
Fondest memory: In the pic you have a view of the cultural center by the night
Favorite thing: Walk down the main drag that runs from the Royal Castle all the way down to Lazienki Park and beyond. This street is called different names at different points, but the section that's pictured in my photo above is called Nowy Swiat. Here, it's all fancy shops and cafes. A little farther north, it's lined with bookshops and student hangouts as it runs past the university. And a little farther south, it's Embassy Row. All in all, a great place to get a feeling for 19th-century Central European style and society.
Favorite thing: Of course this map is very small and very general and it won't help you when you are in Warsaw, but can give you some view on the main streets here.
Favorite thing: Natolin is where I live. It's one of Warsaw's 'bedrooms'. New apartments here are quite expensive. And who says that blocks of flats and their surroundings cannot look nice?!
Fondest memory: ....hhhmmm, looking at the car coming down from the tall building....or is the car just hanging there...?
Down-town of Warszaw is very very GREAT.
Fondest memory: I like to be in centre of Warszaw and see huge buildings, many people and traffic.
