History:

The Skarpa ski jumping hill at Poland’s capital Warsaw was designed by Eng. Jeremi Strachocki. It was planned to be built in 1955, but due to high level of ground water and other problems the work was stopped and only accomplished in 1959. Skarpa was one of the first 20 plastic-covered hills in the world. For some time Warsaw used to be an important training centre, later it gradually lost its meaning - hills in the Polish mountains were later on covered with plastic as well and the Warsaw hill was becoming too small for professional ski jumpers. The last competition took place in 1989. In mid-90s the upper part of the inrun was deconstructed, but due to financial reasons the venue wasn't completely torn down. Later the area remained still open because the building under the inrun served as seat of a few small companies.
2010 the technical expertise decided that the hill poses a danger of collapse and has to be removed. The demolition began in the winter (while the companies under the inrun kept working). The tower should be gone by the end of December, later other parts of the construction will be torn down until end of March. The hill has to be deconstructed piece by piece because of surrounding blocks of flats.
In the beginning the hill was located almost at the edge of the city, but Warsaw was growing quickly after the World War II and Skarpa became a real urban hill, close to a subway station and the longest street in Warsaw, Puławska.

Warschau-WC

Da sieht es schon konkreter aus.

Aber auf jeden Fall weiß ich jetzt, dass ich doch nicht falsch lag, als ich mir sicher war, hier schon was gelesen zu haben.

Weltcup in Warschau

Bisher ist es nur eine Idee, noch nicht wirklich ein Projekt (oder zumindest ist noch nicht mehr bekannt). Wir hatten aber einen News-Artikel dazu: www.skisprungschanzen.com/DE/Artikel/0109-Weltcup-Auftakt+2013+im+Warschauer+Stadion%3F

Anregung an die Redaktion

Ich habe keine bessere Position gefunden, aber man sollte eventuell Warschau in die Projekte aufnehmen. Schon in diesem Jahr, als Auftakt der nächsten Saison soll im Fußballstadion Warschaus ein Springen auf einer temporären K90-Schanze stattfinden.
