[PL]

Poludnik Warszawski to umowna nazwa poludnika 21°00’ dlugosci wschodniej przebiegajacego przez Warszawe i okreslajacego kierunek miedzy wieza zegarowa Palacu Jablonowskich (zbudowanego w 1785 roku) a slupem znajdujacym sie na Placu Teatralnym, który ustawiono tam w roku 1880.
Przebieg linii poludnikowej poludnika zerowego w Greenwich (czas Greenwich) wytyczono natomiast cztery lata pózniej, wprowadzajac ujednolicajacy pomiar czasu na swiecie podzial na strefy czasowe. Wczesniej uzywano czasu lokalnego, ustalajac momenty poludnia w róznych miejscowosciach na podstawie dlugosci cienia gnomonu. Róznice czasu lokalnego miedzy Warszawa a Paryzem, gdzie linia poludnikowa powstala w pierwszej polowie XIX wieku, a która wynosi ok. 1 godziny i 14 minut, wprowadzony podzial na strefy czasowe zmniejszyl do jednej godziny.
