Walk in the center of Warsaw

In Warsaw, we spent less than a day, EN route from Spain to Kaliningrad. Staying in the hostel Dizzy Daisy Hostel Riviera, in the heart of the city. Attracted us hostel location, walking distance to the Central railway station of Warsaw and, of course, reasonable price. The hostel was awful - dusty, dirty, with an unpleasant odor. Here about the hostel will not tell, not about the article, and we already talked about it in some detail in a previous article, if you want you can read here.

For a long time in this hostel naturally not stay, went for a walk through the center of the evening in Warsaw. Were, without any purpose, something to see or visit, just walking through the streets, raving aimlessly. Our route lay mainly on the following streets - Marszalkowska, Mokotowska, Nowowiejska, Aleje Jerozolimskie (Jerusalem avenues) and some other small streets and alleys.

Warsaw, however, and the whole of Poland does not seem, except that in addition to the historic neighborhoods of the cities they are also called old towns in every European town. "Old town" represents one, two quarters, which have preserved and maintained architecture of medieval Europe. In Warsaw this quarter is called Stare Miasto or old town.

So Warsaw, like any city of Poland at its core it is grey shabby buildings, garbage on the streets, a large number of drunks and homeless people, tasteless dressed constantly in a hurry and people with grim expressions on their faces. Why go far, go outside, the picture will be exactly alike. Only the road we have worse prices are more expensive and quality goods at a lower level.
