A reminder of that time is the Einstein head sculpture and a nearby street named Via de los Combatientes del Gheto de Varsovia which means 'Street of the Combatants of the Gheto of Warsaw'.

Paitilla also Punta Paitilla is a Panama City water front neighbourhood which located on a large point of land which juts out into the bay of Panama. Paitilla is one of the most exclusive residential areas in the city. Here the skyline is dominated by condominium towers which offer residents panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and the Panama City skyline. Visitors and residents alike can stroll the seawall along Balboa Avenue or just enjoy gazing at the Amador Causeway, ships awaiting entrance to the Panama Canal or Casco Viejo at the far end of the bay.

The Paitilla area is always bustling and has everything close by including: the Punta Pacifica Hospital, Panama's most modern medical facility which is affiliated with John Hopkins Hospitals International. There are supermarkets, retail shops, restaurants and specialty stores like the comprehensive kosher supermarket, 'Super Kosher'. The modern Multi-Centro Mall lies at the base of Punta Paitilla.

The Radisson combines chic, modern design with Panamanian art, creating an atmosphere which is quite unique among Panama City Hotels.

Across Avendia Balboa from MultiCentro and just a short walk up Via Italia is the Plaza Paitilla Inn.This 272 room hotel is unique in that it is round. The rounded shape of the building makes for very generous space in each guest room.

My friend has told me great things about Plaza Paitilla but when he stayed there it was only $45! Looks like it's gone up quite a bit but I guess everything else has too. He also said the Country inn and Suites, pictured at the top, was a real dive!
