Ursus  is one of the capital’s smallest districts with an area of 9.4 km², yet its population density of 5,333 persons/ km² puts it above the Warsaw average (3,219 persons/ km²). 50,133 people live in the district and Ursus is constantly evolving. Increasingly new inhabitants form part of the district’s landscape. Currently, people below 40 years of age represent more than half of the Ursus population. The dynamic changes and the rapidly emerging modern housing estates make Ursus one of the fastest-growing districts. website

Ursynów is situated almost entirely on the Warsaw Plain, 20-30 m above the level of the Vistula River. Its 44.6 km² stretch over the southern part of the capital and takes 8.6% of its total area. The population of Ursynów in 2009 was estimated at 145,000. The population and residential opportunities are constantly growing. Only a small number of inhabitants decide to move out of the district, while many who change homes usually do so within the district. website

Wola has become one of Warsaw’s strongest growing districts, earning the reputation as the new business, commerce and services centre. Developers and investors have gained an appreciation for the district’s attributes (vicinity to the city centre, ever-present greenery, well designed transport system, etc.), thanks to which Wola has become attractive for new investments.

Żoliborz has always been a delightful area. It owes its name to the beauty of that part of the Vistula escarpment. The view that spreads from there evoked a spontaneous cry of delight in French: “Joli bord” (Beautiful bank), and so it has stayed that way in the Polonised version -Żoliborz. website
