Photo: Tomasz Kaczor Warsaw is a city of contrasts, where modernism meets history, and western and eastern influences melt together. Only about 40% of the city inhabitants where born in here. Historical buildings often stand side-by-side with new skyscrapers. Just like this old, built before the II World War house at Sienkiewicza 4 street, in the city center.
Over its closed messy backyard (popularly called a "well") one can see a shining blue skyscraper. Quite an extraordinary view.
