10th-Anniversary Stadium, Warsaw, 1991.

In 1989 this stadium was rented by the City of Warsaw to a company that turned it into an outdoor market known as Jarmark Europa, which soon became Europe’s largest open-air market.The top tier of the market was full of vendors of such items as clothing, souvenirs, and pirated CDs and movies (and other things, as you can notice on the photo). Between 1995 and 2001 more than 25,000 traders were prosecuted, while approximately 10 million pirated CDs and video tapes were confiscated. Amongst the English-speaking community in Warsaw the stadium is often referred to as the “Russian market”.The black market aspect of the stadium, with all its shady dealings, illegal products, and in particular the weapons, has made it into mainstream media of which one example is the suspense novel by Jack King: The Fifth Internationale
