At the legendary Różyckiego market, it used to be possible to buy anything, from a crisp white wedding dress to a new firearm. This lively market in one of Warsaw’s historic quarters was once regarded as the city’s most popular bazaar and the epicentre of culture during the communist era. Close to a railway and metro station, the Różycki quarter is well connected, but the area is a shadow of its former self.
While the shiny veneer has faded over the years, the soul and spirit of the quarter remain strong. Różycki houses many of Warsaw’s historical buildings, dating back from before the Second World War.
Using the district’s historical architecture as a foundation, and with the right guidance, this area can once again be a vibrant gem in Poland’s capital city.
