Gdanski Bridge Warsaw
by Grzegorz Wroniszewski
Back to menu
Gdanski Bridge, which spans the Vistula river, is the only two-level bridge in Warsaw - the capital of Poland. Some people observe it through the windows of their cars, others while travelling by trams, riding a bike or simply walking by. Daylight rarely touches the very bottom of the bridge, except perhaps very early in the morning or last thing during the evening.  This is the place where everlasting minutes of emptiness and stillness interweave with the intensity of minor events.
