Although most of central Warsaw was destroyed during the war, especially the Warsaw Uprising and the German destruction afterwards, still many pre-WWII buildings survive in Warsaw. Many of them were just basically restored to make use of them right after the war. Lack of interest and lack of funds in the communist era have left many of these buildings untouched since then. Therefore, you still may find neglected buildings, especially in side streets. However, Warsaw is rapidly changing its face since the beginning of the 1990s, probably faster than any other city in Poland. Therefore, that may mean the end to many of the neglected buildings. It is your chance now to stroll through Warsaw's streets and admire them before they will be gone.
