Warsaw's Abandoned Past [Kult America]

800 ratings | 31753 views
When I wonder around Warsaw and Poland in general, I am amazed at how many abandoned buildings I find.  I’m not much of an urban explorer but I’m curious about the small details left behind by the previous inhabitants.  Some have told me that these buildings are abandoned as a result of the communist system, others have told me that the some buildings once belonged to jewish landlords whom were either murdered by the Germans during the second world war or fled Poland for their safety.  We visited Prudential building, Kamienica Wolfa Krongolda, Kamienica Majera Wolanowskiego, .Piwnice i browary Haberbusch i Schiele, Kamienica Abrama Włodawera, Kamienica Lejba Osmosa,  ★★★ CONTACT ★★★ Email: [email protected] Official Site: http://www.socash.xyz/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RySocash

Im sure the people of Warsaw had many more ploblems and worries than seeing into the future of a building. Maybe are we gonna surrvive this day. When are we gonna eat again. Can i talk to the guy next door without being shot!

those are empty because of stupid laws and current party in power . They don't want investors to renovate it because they hate people with money and vision. Right now they will nationalize those buildings that were taken by private investors and renovated.

wstyd dla warszawy i innych miast, ze nie dba o nasze polskie dziedzictwo architektury. wstyd!

It isn't as bad as London which lost all of its culture. The owners of that building where probably put in prison by the communists. like most of building communists didn't want them to be around so that Polish people felt more Russian.

Ta kamienica w 3:59 jest własnością dużego dewelopera Skanska, niedawno została wpisana na listę zabytków. Planowana jest jej restauracja, a na jej tyłach powstanie kolejny wieżowiec http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1490695&page=33 A teren browarów w 1:48 będzie zabudowany w całości, właśnie zaczęła się zabudowa całego tego kwartału http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=252874&page=43

I do not understand one thing in Poland. The appearance and condition of buildings. There are often inhibited buildings but It hasn't basic maintenance for decades...Many Polish cities would be really nice, but even in Cracow, when you go two blocks from the main square and many houses are in terrible condition. Poles do not take it bad, but compared to Czech repubic, Poland is not so much "poorer" so I don't think so that It's about the money. I don't understand it...

+Vojtěch Rod I think it might be since the Cold War, socialism slowed the economy down, and things wasn't taken care of much since Poland took a lot of the attacks in the war. I'm on a forum about rebuilding old buildings and new buildings and it looks like Warsaw is slowly getting rid of all these old run down buildings. I've never been to Poland (American) but it would be nice to visit someday. It would be nice to see them rebuild the Saxon Palace and Bruhl Palace someday soon.
TimmyME (4 months ago)
It will change as time goes by. In the 80s all building in Poland looked like ruins.
Vojtěch Rod (2 years ago)
Well I am not so sure that I understod your post right because I used translator for it.... :D Well, I understand cases that you describe but how I wrote before I am talking about common condition of many buildings in Poland. On the other hand... when we talking about property of people who died in WW2 there have to be some process how solve it, because milions died during the war but I can not see ten thousands buildings like these across the Europe and Asia...Property which nobody cares, it does not pay taxes, etc. expires after a certain time to the state in CZ. so I suppose that Poland has the equivalent law.... frankly you can unfortunately just demolished many buildings from the video...

Tak jak jsem psal na začátku nemám na mysli to nejužší historické centrum, podrobně to popisuji v prvním příspěvku... samozřejmě nemůžu hodnotit celou zemi, ale všechny místa co jsem viděl mě v tom utvrzují. (Krakov a okolí, pohraničí MS kraj) nejvíc mě to překvapilo v souvislosti s tím, že ta oblast "Krakovska" patří obecně spíš mezi ty bohatší části země.... No tak ekvivalentně komunisti ukradli majetky i lidem tady a více méně se o ně nikdo pořádně nestaral 41 let. A přímé restituce tvořily jenom poměrně malou část celkového majetku. Jinak legislativně sice máme ošetřeno, že majitel se musí o svůj majetek starat a město/stát má na majitele nějaké páky jak toho dosáhnout, ale v reálném prostředí to moc nefunguje.... navíc silně pochybuju, že by něco podobného v Polsku nebylo...

You might want to read about building at Okrąg street, in Powiśle: http://www.powisle.waw.pl/historia-powisla/powstancze-twierdze-okrag-2/ http://batalionparasol.pl/okrag-2/ It's been my home for over 20 years, and I found out about it's history just recently. Just the fact that it has been bombed with Goliath makes it pretty interesting.

Twarda 28 is not abandoned. During russian occupation leftish treators were trying to hide every sign of pre war warsaw wich was rich and comfortable town. Now Warsaw is governed by Hanna Gronkiewicz Walz( corrupted greedy leftish politician). She is waiting untill the building will fall by itself and then she will sell ground to one of her friends who will sell it to some investors who will make another skyscraper.
Sawbonz (1 year ago)
browarman Wait, didn't the right wing building conversationist put in the monument registration so that it's impossible to build anything new?

Reason why people don't want to do something with this buildings is that there were lots of situations where company or private person renovated and then magically someone (usually from Israel) started to claim ownership of this building. That's one of the reasons some people generalize that to not liking Jews, because they had really good situation before the war, while now they're blaiming polish people for concentration camps and stealing their property.
whatwhat3432523 (3 months ago)
Rightly so aswell. The poles in general had a weak performance in WW2, heck even the jewish ghetto fought back much harder then the poles did.

Mariusz Gliwinski Shekels are always their main concern isn't it? After the Treaty of Versailles, which bankrupted Germany. Most Germans were starving, homeless, no wood for their fires, 250k suicide rate. Jews were phoning their friends in America "come on over you can get homes and factories for pennies on the $." They came in droves!

Warsaw was heavily bombed during the war and as as a result of that 85% of buildings were destroyed. Pretty much everything there was built after the war.

Fajnie ukazane kontrasty Warszawy, jest jeszcze trzeci element przypominający o minionej epoce- komunistyczne bloki z wielkiej płyty. Te miasto ma różne odcienie- podoba mi się odbudowana starówka, podoba mi się częsć ul. Jana Pawła, Grzybowskiej, Emili Plater, okolice ronda ONZ, przedwojenne budowle też mają dusze, ale ogromne blokowiska z podwóreczkami, piaskownicą i trzepakiem są tragiczne, przytłaczające i szkoda, że kiedykolwiek powstały. Gdyby nie komunizm Warszawa byłaby ładniejsza i mogłaby chociaż próbować konkurencji z Krakowem czy Wrockiem ;/. Jak zawsze super filmik, stały widz pozdrawia ;)
