Golden Terraces, Warsaw, Poland

Just across the street from the Marriott where we stayed in Warsaw was the Golden Terraces. It is a commercial, office, and entertainment complex in the center of Warsaw next to the train station. It opened in early 2007.

It has a fascinating glass roof that looks like soap bubbles.

Here's the wikipedia article and here's their web site (in Polish).

Kwidzyn, Poland

After we left Krakow, we took the train to the paper mill at Kwidzyn. Here's International Paper's site for that mill. The mill was built in the early 1970's by the Communist government. IP bought it in 1992.

Here's their web page (sorry, it's in Polish) and here's the wikipedia article. Here're my pictures of the mill. For a good laugh, here's my "apartment."
