Prices in Warsaw vary depending on the standard of the apartment, construction year and location. The city is full of commie blocks - square buildings from the socialistic era which offer moderate standard of living but are most affordable. For those interested in the idea, Ursynow - a large district in southernmost Warsaw may be an interesting place. It is home to almost 140k inhabitants and is considered a bedroom of Warsaw. It is well managed and quite safe neighbourhood, well connected with a city center through metro line.
The city also offers many high standard rentals. From many years Warsaw is experiencing boom on the real estate market and there are many newly built apartment buildings with additional features like underground parking, fitness, security, etc.
The prices are higher in the city center and lower for the outer areas. Because there is only one metro line in Warsaw, districts connected to the metro line have significantly higher rental prices.
Like in every city some districts have a better and some have a worse reputation. Generally right-bank Warsaw (especially Praga Pólnoc) is considered as a dangerous neighbourhood with higher than average crime level.
