I have always been surprised how the stained glass windows in Bracia Jabłkowscy's Department Store survived the German rape of Warsaw.

Located in central Warsaw at Bracka 25, designed by Franciszel Lilpop and karol Jankowski in 1913, it survived WW2 and was 'nationalised' as the 'Central Department Store' (Centralny Dom Tomarowy) then became a shoe store 'Dom Obuwia'.

The beautiful series of architectural features, the largest 'post secessionist' stained glass window in Warsaw and bas-reliefs by Bartłomeijcyk are worth checking out.

The store has within it several shopping levels, with trendy cafes, bookstores, chic boutiques and music shops.

You mean the building that's mostly the Traffic bookshop.

Quite a few buildings round that part of the centre survived. By the time the German army got to dealing with that part of town, supplies of explosive materiel were beginning to run very low, and eventually they even stopped using petrol in order to conserve it for evacuations and retreat. Hence the number of Seccessionist buildings that survived in the southern part of the centre and the top end of Mokotów.
