I'm assured that the Baroque, tin-roofed, Pod Blachą Palace, on the left, part of the Royal Palace complex, houses a renowned collection of rugs. Wow.
The, er, less-than-salubrious district (not somewhere to explore at night) on the right bank of the River Wisła (Vistula) is Praga, an independent town until 1791; the twin 75m-tall towers (the smaller, third, tower is attractive too) are those of the Cathedral Basilica of St. Michael the Archangel and St. Florian, a World Heritage site which, of course, was destroyed by the departing Nazis in 1944; rebuilding was completed in 1970. It seems slightly dwarfed by the surrounding apartment blocks, but has a capacity of over 8,000.
Note the tram line down the middle of the bridge.
