Our guide to West Warsaw by our Warsaw local expert - Warsaw’s Wola district was formerly under the administration of the City Centre. Here you can find lots of high-rise buildings. It is the second agglomeration of the city centre. Banks and representative offices of foreign companies have replaced old industrial plants. The residential areas of the west of Wola have been changed to give them a more European character. Some examples of this are the Atrium offices on Pope John Paul II Avenue, the Kredyt Bank buildings on Kasprzaka Street and one of the highest buildings in Warsaw, the Warsaw Trade Tower also known as Daewoo.
