wanders thru warsaw-

the greenest city in Europe? im fed up of people castigating warsaw for its historical burden and its architectural smorgasbord, and for limiting the city to little more than a collection of pubs, clubs and shops.

so, i put together a blog of warsaw, from another angle. it could be any city really.

for an alternative look at warsaw check out:

The greenest city in Europe?? Come off it. The Polish countryside is green, cities most definitely aren't compared to where I'm from. It may well be greener than people say but it isn't the greenest, I can tell you that for a fact.

Maybe not but go and look at the Vistula from the Old Town.

Polish spring rocks, thanks Mike, and also for the reminder to get batteries in my camera for next Sunday's walk around the city. If I take any pictures which come out nice I will send them to you so you can use them.

nice blog & I would agree that Warsaw is one if the greenest cities in europe . as a warsaw resident for over 4 years now I am amazed at the number of parks that the city has to offer & also the fact that I am still finding new ones on a regular basis.

Sure, thanks. People talk of the polish 'golden autumn' but it's really the spring that has all the colour. I've always thought Warsaw's trees something special in the cityscape, and I'm not just talking of trees in parks or reserves but 'street trees'. In many other cities in europe, due to successive layers of development, these trees have slowly disappeared and have not been replaced. In Warsaw, this is not the case. (Also, trees not only absorb pollution but they attract birds). Warsaw may not be the prettiest city in terms of 'town planning' and spatiality, but it is an alive city, of all manner of life.
