Thanks for the comment

This time I'm going to upload a few pics from the streets inside the area of Old Town. Prepare for Polish kind of beauty

91) The Ruska street. Why "Ruska" ? It's rather unknown but one is pretty sure - it isn't connected with Russians after all


92) A fancy detail

93) Kiełbaśnicza street. The translation - sausage street It's a tribute to craftsmen, who were preparing sausages in Middle Age. In the background the saint Elisabeth church.


94) Saint Nicolaus street. Nice patron, I must say In german times, in Wrocław we had Nicolau District but now there are small pieces of old architecture left : ( I will show You someday.


95) Rzeźnicza street = connection with butchers. The same situation just like on Kiełbaśnicza street. In my opinion it's the most beautiful street in the Old Town. The street luckily survived the war and we can meet there the brightest examples of art nouveau. More details later

Thread is opened day and night so visit it anytime You want. But it's a pleasure to see so many people smiling about my hometown. It's motivating

I think, it's time to reveal the mystery of the appearance of our Christmas tree this year, which is still standing in our City Market I suspect that You are going to like it. So, sit tight and watch

96) As I announced, Wrocław's Christmas tree !


97) Another pic. You can see the our greatest monument - the lategothic, old city hall on the right and the new city hall on the left, which was established in the XIX-th century.


98) A little bit awry photo but sometimes I like such a modern vision of photography

99) Wiiiiiide... The main building of our local university


And as an oddity, the current look of this building wasn't definitive. When Wrocław was in the borders of Austria, and during this time the university was established. There were plans to rebuild it but the war between Austria and Prussia disturbed them. Wrocław changed its affiliation and the Prussians didn't continue what Austrians wanted to do. This is the project :


Far more monumental ? Sometimes I am going to show You some comparisons between nowadays and the time before war. We have a great website with old postcards and photos of Wrocław from the past and sometimes I will use it

100) For the 100-th photo I choose our local neogothic train station. Not long from this moment there is going to be a renovation of the building and the public square before it. I can't wait to see the results

There is an amazing view at the university from the riverside but I must make such a photo first Thank You for the comment ! When I have more time, after the exams, I will visit and comment other threads but I must say christos that Thessaloniki made a impression on me during last vacation. It's a very nice city and I felt there better than in Athens. But it's a subject in Your thread

101) A contrast between different periods in architecture.


102) View from the university bridge on the islands on river Odra

The train station needs renovation ASAP. Dirty, smelly and ugly.

Unfortunately I must agree with You. Homeless people sleeping there and urinating - that's the problem of every station in Poland. But I must say it's getting better. Now, there is an auction for performer of the renovation and the plan is to start the procedure during spring. And the station after the renovation is going to be closed during the night for the homeless and that is a visible progression

I'm slowing the amount of uploaded photos to make You more interested because about 50 or 60 pics per page is too much, so I promise to upload every evening in my time zone

103) On the other side of university. There is a plan to close the University square, which I showed You recently for cars in this year. I keep my fingers crossed


104) Fancy decoration of the elevation above the pub

105) Once again the swordsmen but during the night when students are starting to live properly


106) Prince Witold street. It has been completely renovated and You can see the effect. There is a new building on the right, which reminds me a little bit of Holland. And the view on the right riverside of Odra with the XIX-th century districts, which survived the war.

107) Small architecture with famous fountain for about 1 milion zlotych Firstly, the fountain were supposed to be there for one year but people from Wrocław really liked it and it's here for about 10 years or so


108) Once again the western row of the oldest tenement houses in Wrocław.

113) Nature is always the key to show some extraordinary signs of winter. So, let's visit for a moment the Southern Park


114) As You can see it's so cold and so many snow that the ski runners are taking over the park

117) Wrocław is a city, which was very experienced by the war in it's history. And this is a sculpture of tanks, which were trying to conquer Wrocław during the fights between Germans and Russians. It's located at the entrance to the russian soldiers graveyard located in the southern part of the city, which was the most vulnerable area during the war. It's hard to say if Russians did well for this city, but one is undeniable - thanks to them, Wrocław is now a Polish city. With his scars but still.


118) Antena of the local radiostation It's near the russian graveyard and the Southern Park.
