Warsaw

A New Kind of Loo

more than a year ago

Plenty of upgrades and new additions have come to Warsaw courtesy of the recent Euro 2012 tournament – check out that shiny new stadium across the river – but one of the most interesting improvements can be found at Warsaw Central Station. The station’s reliably skuzzy communist-era bathrooms have been stunningly replaced with modern toilets and urinals that inexplicably offer walls with images like wrinkly puppies or the White House for the men, and shelves of books or sun-soaked terraces for women. There is also an in-bathroom shop filled with drinks and snacks in case you’ve worked up an appetite in the stall. Dutch company 2theloo created the new restrooms as part of the 48 million zloty overhaul the station is currently undergoing, but fortunately it will only cost you 2zł for the pleasure to use them. There are large “2theloo” signs directing you to the three locations, or you can head to Pasaz Polnocny on level -1, with the entrance from Złote Tarasy for the 24 hour location. Another location is on level 0 with the entrance on the side the Marriott Hotel is located (access from outside the station). The last option is in the hallway in the lower level of the station that leads to the northern end of the tram tracks.
