These photos serve as a sad reminder of what was once a city considered the Paris of the north before being bombed to smithereens to WWII.

Excellent photos, Lsyd.

Battle-hardened. However, Poland has some of the most ambitious renovation/revitalization/renewal projects and schemes on the continent right now, so I have high hopes for Warszawa in the future. I need to take that Berlin-Warsaw train...it's only 6 hours.

Nice pictures, LSyd! Thanks for sharing.

I like the new buildings being built in Warsaw, and the classic ones too, of course. Pretty capital.

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain!

Awesome pics. I am disappointed that I didn't go to Warsaw on my trip to Poland a couple years ago. One day...

Brute strength. I can definitely see the resemblance of Moscow in it.

yeah. when i met up with my co-workers we were greeted with the welcome that "Poland is still under reconstruction." but the construction energy was good to experience.

Nice to see some old & newer gems among the commie blocks and drabness of the eastern block. That said, I did enjoy the tour. I was wondering if it's just me or is the countryside not too far from the central city. Appears that way in the aerial pics. Thanks for the tour L.

I saw no ponies in this thread. But the city looks like alot of fun to explore.

it's not too far out; it was maybe a 20-25 minute drive (with decent traffic) from the palace of culture and science going southwest. i was kind of surprised by the sprawl on the edges, it kind of reminded me of iraqi sprawl, but in a good way. maybe i'll put those pics up.

Great stuff - don't think I've seen aerials of Warsaw before.

Love the night shots in 44-6
