Art Nouveau market hall built in 1906-09, recently revitalised, filled with cafes, restaurants, and shops with food. It was designed by Juliusz Dzierżanowski, and Józef Zygmunt Otto is responsible for decorative ornaments.
Its reconstruction stirred up plenty of emotions, because not much was preserved from the original building. Additionally, it was clear that it would no longer be an old-fashioned market, but rather a more posh spot. It is located in the very centre of the city, where tourists’ and businessmen’s tracks cross.
JEMS Architects did a great job and a place was brought back to life. It is worth dropping by to taste street food or more elegant dishes, or spend your evening at the longest bar in Warsaw.
