Warsaw may not be a beautiful city in the traditional sense of the word, but it sure is a very interesting and vibrant place. Built up from the ashes in the 1950s it was constructed with communist ideals und new technological developments in mind. The streets are broad and made for a lot of traffic, while residential buildings rise up in the sky surrounded by a surprising amount of green. Since the 90s Warsaw is the undisputed capital of capitalism in Poland, so many new skyscrapers were built since then. Nowadays the communist and capitalist structures form an interesting although at times contradictory symphony.
