Life with a river flow

“Flisak” in Polish language means “a raftman”. He might have been a peasant, he might have been a nobleman whose choice was to live with a river flow. In Poland, it was believed that Vistula was the greatest river in the universe. For hundred of years the river was one of the main trading arteries of Poland. It brought raftmen money, freedom and adventures. Wearing a linen shirt and hemp pants, early in the morning flisac used to push off his boat and flow out into the river Vistula towards the Baltic Sea. He was carrying various commodities, however grain, a treasure of Poland, most often. During the end of the day, as flisac reached the shore, he enjoyed himself among the locals. They, mostly poor port workers and craftmen, welcomed flisacs with a great hospitality.

Vistula brings fortune

Vistula has never been a humble river. It flooded over nearby buildings, changing the shore's line. Some houses were rebuilt or moved deeper into the land. Although the locals used to fortify the shore, Vistula's waters were coming back, taking the precious property from the poor people of Powisle. Nevertheless, they always loved their lives here and believed in fortune.   Finally, after the First World War, a local who lived by Tamka Street, won the lottery. Soon after, his daughter Aurelia opened here an exchange which was the most lucky place to play lottery in whole Warsaw.

Tamka

There was a road leading from riverside to Krakowskie Przedmiescie, the royal route of Warsaw. In the 17th century it also became an important route connecting adjoining settlements. People used to call it “tamka”, what meant a barrier that stops the flow of water. Next to the wooden houses that were built along “tamka”, the Queen of Poland, Marie Louise, raised a hospital and the Vice-Chancellor of the Crown, Jan Gninski, founded a palace (built on the top of the bastion financed by Prince Janusz Ostrogski) which later would become a pension for young royals and a conservatory. Today this renowned baroque building serves as the Frederic Chopin Museum.   In the beginning of 20th century, Tamka’s landscape was enriched by modern at that time, storeyed buildings. Most of them fell into ruin during the Warsaw Uprising. After the WWII new residences have been built along with the expansion of the locals streets of Powisle.
