The underground in Warsaw is colloquially known as the Metro. Line 1 is now complete (going from the south to the north of the city) and they have just started work on line 2 which will go from west to east. It is clean and safe with some overcrowding at rush hours. The logo for the Metro stations has a characteristic blue 'M' on a yellow background.
One of the best playgrounds in Warsaw is Jordanowski Garden on the corner of Odynca Street and Niepodleglosci Avenue (known as 'Park Odynca to us), right in the heart of Mokotow. With a skating hill, football pitch, basketball court, table tennis tables, volleyball net, chess boards, and numerous rides for the younger ones too. We love it - check it out if you can.
Seems like they are going to town with the renovation of the Central Station. Newly designed toilets with relaxing (or not) wallpaper to stare at while you spend a penny (well 2zl exactly) have been installed. Replacing the grot is the company 2theloo from Holland and they are certainly an improvement on the previous public conveniences. You can also purchase drinks and other items before or after your trip. Check them out at 2theloo.com
