Seventy-six years after it was first demolished by the Nazis, Warsaw’s Great Synagogue has risen anew – only this time, in miniature form. Unveiled in early August, the 1:25 scale model is the latest addition to the stunning Park Miniatur, and quite possibly the feather in its cap. With...

The dehumanizing dimensions of the Palace of Culture are softened in warmer weather when Pl. Defilad turns into a quasi-party zone. Should it rain, seek shelter under the covered colonnades: there’s room for everyone. And with no nearby residents to pester, it’s just about one of the only places...

Hot This August: Otwarta Ząbkowska
More than just another street, Ząbkowska has long been considered Praga’s spiritual gateway – in layman’s terms, a place where ‘things happen’.

How to describe it? Think Hala Koszyki for the Vice generation. Dubbed Mordor by those working there, the office-heavy district around Domaniewska has no shortage of detractors, but they’ve thinned in number since the launch of Postępu 5. Gathering cult street food outlets under one industrial roof, you’ll be...
