Warsaw in the Past


Zamkowy Square (Plac Zamkowy) - view from the interwar period (1918–1939). Polish naming (which is noticeable on the signboards) was restored in 1918, after the regaining of the independence. In the background we can see the gate leading to the Castle's courtyard where the outbuildings were located. (Archive of Warsaw, photo: Zdzisław Marcinkowski)       

Panorama of Warsaw’s left bank in 1905 – view from Praga shore. Built-up section of Praga including Kierbedzia Bridge in the foreground. After its destruction during World War II the bridge was rebuilt in 1949 – without its trademark latticework – as the Śląsko-Dąbrowski Bridge.

Royal Castle and Column of Zygmunt III Waza on Zamkowy Square – before World War I. The former castle of Polish kings served as the seat of the czarist governors during the Russian occupation. Following Poland’s independence in 1918, the castle became the residence of the President of Poland. (Photo from A.J Ostrowski Publishing album)
