warsawa ... tourist trap?

modulation is visiting warsaw. not a city which has ever appeared in my top ten tourist destinations, but i am much more inclined to visit it after reading his thoughtful reflections on its architecture and history not to mention obscure (and in classic polish style, rarely open to the public or about to be shut down/demolished because they are too popular, attractions.)

Commie skyscrapers are cool, but the ones in Moscow are better.

TBH I’d recommend Krakow over Warsaw any day– most of Warsaw was demolished during WWII and rebuilt in a not too inspired way. The area around what was the Warsaw ghetto is particularly dreary, like the bad bits of Luton. We spent a miserable afternoion wandering around there looking for some kind of memorial, which when we found it was totally underwhelming.
