06 - Różycki Baazar

The Różycki Bazaar was established at the end of the 19th century on the initiative of a Jewish entrepreneur, Manas Ryba. The founder of the project was Julian Różycki, a well-known pharmacist and philanthropist. The bazaar was built on the Różycki property between Targowa, Ząbkowska and Brzeska Streets. Manas Ryba’s house was located at Targowa 56, from where he managed the project. In interwar Poland, the bazaar became one of the leading marketplaces in Warsaw at that time. It is worth mentioning that before the war, it was mainly Jews who traded in the bazaar. After the war, despite the nationalization of the bazaar, private trade still flourished here. The Różycki Bazaar penetrated the consciousness of the inhabitants of Warsaw as part of the local folklore. Although there are fewer stands here, you can still buy the famous dumplings and tripe with oil, such popular during times of socialism and not only.
