Once regarded as Warsaw’s premier bazaar, the rambling Różycki Bazaar in the Praga district has seen its popularity wane since 1989. Black market trade once thrived under Nazi and communist governments, but nowadays the historic market (it began in 1901) is a ghostly image of its former self. Once considered the place for cardigans, firearms and spurious goods, it’s now a mildly depressing look into working-class Warsaw life. Visitors could easily outfit an entire polyester wedding thanks to the heaps of vendors selling cheap wedding dresses, tacky kiddie tuxes and chintzy mother-of-the-bride gowns. The bazaar is set to be revamped in the near future, but time will tell if this will help rejuvenate its fortunes in a world most accustomed to shopping malls...
