The history of the Fort is still visible today. You can easily recognize the former barracks and powder magazines.

However, the combat usefulness of Fort Mokotów has never been put to the test. The development of the international situation and the progress of military technology forced the invaders to rebuild costly.After independence was regained, work continued on changing the use and reconstruction of the fortress. In 1925, broadcasting stations of the Polish Radio were set up here. Despite heavy bombing, Polish Radio broadcast until September 25, 1939.After World War II, it housed the top secret "ZARAT" Radio and Television Plant.
