27. The buildings complex of the Regional Directorate of the Polish State Railways

27.DOKP

On the extended parcel located between the streets Wilenska, Targowa and Solidarnosci Avenue there is a building complex of the Regional Directorate of Railway. Built by design of Professor Marian Lalewicz in the years 1928-1931. Presentable facade of pre-war railway investment can be seen from the Wilenski square. Insides of this monumental building are shown in the first minutes of the Oscar production, “The Pianist” by Roman Polanski. The opening scene shows Wladyslaw Szpilman plays a live concert, and then flees the bombed building.
