I ♥ Polska – Warszawa, the capital.

Warszawa is not the most beautiful place in Poland, but it has something that makes me want to go there every time I visit Poland.

Palace of Culture and Science is a bloody ugly building if you think about it, but… damn it is such a cool landmark. It was a gift from the Soviet Union to Poland, built in the 50s. Thank you Russia! Спасибо!

Another great building back from the amazing USSR times is Central Train Station. I personally love it and I hope they won’t destroy it and build a soulless glass piece of crap.

What can I say? I love Warsaw, because people living over there are open minded and creative. Every time I go there I feel like it is getting better and better.

It is worth mentioning that Warszawa was almost completely destroyed during the II World War. Nazis got a little bit upset after the Warsaw Uprising in 1944 and ordered the planned destruction of the city.

Warsaw has to be pacified, that is, razed to the ground.

Adolf Hitler, 1944
Even though the city was pretty much always considered ugly it left some impact on certain people, like David Bowie, who stopped there for a couple of hours when going back from Moscow in 1973. The capital made him feel so miserable and depressed that he composed a track and named it Warszawa.

Anyway, back to the future. Warsaw is an attractive place to live and work, and also study.

To sum up this short post I would like to recommend the best vegan burgers in the world. Krowarzywa on Hoza street. I can honestly say that they were better than the normal ones served with a meat.

Onward and upward,

Tsaritsa Katarzyna

  1. I have a second thought about what You’ve written and as I agree that W isn’t most pretty place in Poland, I think You’re wrong to say it’s never been. Before the WWII it was called The Paris of the North. Have a look at pre-war pics and movies.


    And try to find Warszawa 1935 movie, if You’re interested- it’s 20 min detailed computer reconstruction movie/project depicting city just before the war.
    Unfortunately You’re right saying that Russian communists made it ugly..
