2/3 Warszawy to osiedla / Housing Estates Constitute 2/3 of Warsaw

A map and the shortest guide to Warsaw housing estates.

Modernist housing estates cover most of Warsaw’s surface. Extending to vast areas, each one of them constitutes a single separate complex designed in a uniform manner and built in a relatively short time. A bird’s-eye view reveals their structure and borderlines. The designers often used one type of buildings and repeated their construction details throughout the whole estate. Thanks to these elements, the map of the Warsaw housing estates, although largely simplified, is clear and easy to follow.
