Thank You very much fot this warm comment I must confess that truly I started the journey with photography about 2 months ago. It was the time when I bought the reflex camera and here are the results Before this moment I had been only taking photos occasionally with tiny compact. And I must say that the difference is astonishing between two mashines
I still work very hard to improve my abilities and some tips could be nice

Hi, once again.

This time my purpose is to show You some pics connected with our bridges and the views from them. This idea came to me several minutes ago and I've got something You will be enjoying The main characters of coming scene : Grunwaldzki and Zwierzyniecki bridges. In my opinion the two most beautiful of almost 400 bridges in Wrocław - that's interesting because we are on the fourth position with the amount of bridges in Europe

67) Let's begin with Zwierzyniecki bridge which connects the Great Island with the area nearby the Grunwaldzki square. It's the northeastern part of the city and most of buildings located in those parts of the city weren't destroyed during the war. In my own ranking, I locate this bridge on the top


68) In several years the bridge will be renovated because of it's not well technical condition.

71) It's time for really monumental object. It's the Grunwaldzki bridge. I must say, that for residents of Wrocław it is a symbol. Maybe it shows what the earlier owners of the city were capable of, but in my opinion we are lucky that such an amazing bridge is still in Wrocław


72) The linchpin of this giant

75) Typical postcard view from Grunwaldzki bridge on Piasek Island, Ostrw Tumski and Pokoju bridge at the front


76) View on the nearby area of Grunwaldzki square. It shows Polish architecture on the right riverside of Odra. The tenement houses which were standing there before war, were completely destroyed.

Excellent job, grzybson88!
Excellent photos!

Your hometown is so warm and romantic. I was last month in Warsaw (see below!), but my next polish destination will be certainly Wroclaw. I hope this year.

Thank You very much fot comment.

I advise You to visit Wrocław when everything is full of colours and the plants have green leaves - in this time of year, only in some places is as You mentioned - romantic And the best of all - even if my city has suffered very much during last 60 years, now it is lifting up from the knees and in about 5-10 years it's gonna be far more better than now.

Wroclaw is indeed a beautiful city. Thanks for your pics and your insightful comments. You do a great job of taking night pictures - I wish I could do as well!

My Polish colleagues aren't satisfied by my night photos after all and it's very hard to achieve something in UPC, so these aren't the best night photos of Wrocław in Polish section But i'm working on it. The time will bring the results of my efforts.

So, let's continue the trip mostly during the dark Wrocław

77) As You can see, on this pictures there are several interesting things about Wrocław. First of all the moat, which is unique in Europe. Few cities still have them and that's why it is so uncommon. Also the old lady who is crossing the moat is going over the new footbridge, which has it's own nickname : "dog footbridge" because of the name of small tower which had standed here until the Napoleon destroyed the fortifications during his campaign. Also in the background there is a beautiful object - Świebodzki Station, from which there aren't leaving any trains now but government has the plan to restore the old tradition. Outside the moat, especially in the western direction, there aren't many monuments left. Why ? Cause of the war.


78) Another pic viewing the footbridge, station and the office building from the 90's

79) The building of the court. It looks like a castle and I must say it's quite huge. I don't have the proper photo showing what's the length of this building but You can trust me that the street where this building is located, abounds in great monuments, just like these one or Renoma from the first page. In the future I'll show You the other parts of this street called Podwale which is the first street outside the moat


80) Part of recently renovated Promenade which sorrounds the Old Town and it's the last "street" before the moat on this pic You can see the western part.

81) Krupnicza street. View in the southern direction. You can see once again the building of the court and quite preserved row of tenement houses. But I can assure You that also outside the moat in the southern direction there aren't many tenement houses left. Once again the reason is known.


82) Once again Krupnicza street. This time the view in the northern direction on the University library. It's very close to City Market. The buildings on the left side were recently renovated.

I'll do my best

83) The gothic building of city armory, which survived the bombardment in 1945. Now, inside those walls, a military and archeological museum is located. The whole complecs wasn't preserved from the war but mostly the armory remains the same like before those sad times.


84) The arm of Wrocław on the armories elevation

87) A tram which represents the colours of our local football team Śląsk Wrocław. By the way, this model of tram is now legendary in Wrocław and we call it "the cucumber" the cinema helios in the background on Kazimierza Wielkiego street.


88) Now, this building is acting as an office but before the war, there was a small hospital located inside those walls. It has been recently renovated. Once again it's the Kazimierza Wielkiego street and on the right the Saint Nicolaus street.

89) The small piece of our brand new tram model Skoda and of course our local highway in Old Town Kazimierza Wielkiego street. eh.


90) That kind of buildings were located on Kazimierza Wielkiego street before the war. There were a lots of small lanes in this area but everything was demolished during the war, and the remaining single buildings were also destroyed because of establishing the Kazimierza Wielkiego street. There are plans now to inhibit this highway and sew two fragments of Old Town once again. In the background the Saint Elisabeth church.
