Poland - architecture and city life photos

All pictures and comments taken from :

Warsaw






Blue City - one of the biggest shopping center in Poland




'Warszawa' in Warszawa ('Warsaw' in Warsaw). The first Polish car that was produced after WW2.




Museum of Warsawian Uprising






The gigantic `Ten years stadion`




A historic moment, 1st of May 2004, for the first time the flag of the EU is officially hoisted after a speach by the president Kwasniewski.


The Powazkowski Cemetery. The Tombstone of film maker Krzysztof Kieslowski.



Krakow








The big industrial complex of Nova Huta

Wroclaw




Gdansk











The traditional meets the new.





The Nazists are back in town, but only for the making of the film `The call of the toad`, based on the novel by Nobel Prize winner GŸnter Grass who was brought up in Gdansk.


A tribute to the Solidarity movement at the gates of the shipyard in Gdansk.


A monument symbolizing the onset of WW2, is shining in the sun outside the old postoffice in Gdansk where Polish resistance were trying to fight off the first German aggressors.


The legendary ship yard in Gdansk where the Solidarity movment started is today three quarters in ruins. A waste area with a most uncertain future in the center of the city.

The river Odra on it`s way through centre of Opole


other :



Lichen- The biggest Temple in Poland, and seventh biggest in Europe


The orthodox Church in Suprasl

a few more - this time mostly from the countryside :


Tatra Mountains in the south of Poland. These alp like views might amaze.



Storks are the symbol of Poland.


The Wistula delta, an area with fertile soil.


The beauty of Zywiecki Park Krajobrazowy.


The small coast villages in the north are slowly transforming from fisher villages to tourist resorts offering a relaxing laid back atmosphere.



The north of Poland, the Baltic sea. Apart from a few crowded sea resorts the beaches are vast and unspoiled.


Real periphery of Europe. The swampy yet stunningly beautiful National Park of Biebrza River


The National Park of Bialowieza.


Traditional country side houses in typical south Polish style.


Orthodox Church in country side of eastern Poland.




An Orthodox pilgrim `Spasa` on the way to the holy hill in Grabarka.




The celebration of Holy Body And Blood Of Christ is one of the most colourful and spectacular in the Catholic calendar.


If you`re up for a bizzare experince, why not visit `The chapel of thousand skulls`


One of many `Hill of thousand crosses`.






Associations of knights from all over Europe meet to celebrate the grand history and to reenact the famous Polish medieval battle that took place on 15th of july 1410.
