And at last but not the least

Two special photos for the bright begining of new page

123) Christmas tree, christmas tree, why do You have so big "small glasses" ?


124) That's my favourite. Made with no connection to basic photographical rules but indeed it makes me always smile. Why ? Because it's so natural and I can defend it with whole my heart

Hi, don't waste time and upgrade this thread before it's drown in the abyss

125) The XIX-th century complex of teaching hospital buildings similar to Heidelberg or Barcelona but more neglected This is the place where I spent most of my student time.


126) Another monumental train station in Wrocław. It's made of brick and has more "industrial" view.

127) Another main office of people in power It's located on New Market, which I've shown You before. Remember commiblocks ? Exactly it's the same area. It's the only remaining building from old Breslau.


128) "The tower of pressure" as we call it in Poland The function of this bulding was to pump water to people of Wrocław. Now there is a restaurant there and propably in the future a hotel on the top of the tower It's on the Wiśniowa/Cherry street in the southern part of the city

129) The Century Hall, the only object from Wrocław, which is located on the UNESCO list of heritage. It's a modernistic pearl of architecture designed by Max Berg and established because of the 100 year anniversary of prussian victory over the Napoleon's army. It is still being renovated but You can see the final color of elevation. The biggest effect is when the sun is going down


130) Church of Holy Mary in the southern part of the city, where I live. A little, local patriotic sign This church was build in the XV-th century so it's really old

I was there two years ago and was amazed how well maintained the city is and how much restoration work is happening.

Thanks for the comments ! I invite everyone to visit Wrocław because it's something still going on here and in about a decade this city will certainly be different than it's now so You have the opportunity to see how Wrocław looks now, before some outstanding project will risen from the ground

131) Illuminated spire neer the Century Hall. It's one of the most known symbols of Wrocław besides City Hall or Panorama Racławicka. It's has 96 metres height and it was established in this place in 1948 because of the Regained Lands Exhibition. The regained lands is the area which returned to Poland after the war in the western part of the country.


132) The view at the Ostrów Tumski from Piaskowy bridge.

133) We are now in the area of outside city bus station. In the front patient buses are waiting for their journey's and in the background the building of the railway management.


134) Two daredevils, who are keen on swimming in the local aquapark

135) Almost center of the city. But what can You see ? The freeway and big square. I pray for changes here. It's the Dominikański square.


136) Neon sign inviting to our local zoo

137) I wish in Wrocław were only such an office buildings established after the war and before the Solidarność movement...


138) A seat for the director. I know, it's a little bit cold but the view is a soothing indemnity. The Partyzantów hill is the place where the photo was taken. It was the part of Wrocław's defenses before the demolishing act of Napoleon.

139) The rush of our life. The slogan is always the same but the view varies itself in every place on Earth. It's the Traugutta street and the Bonifratrów church.


140) Grunwaldzki square or Ronald Reagan traffic circle. Another view on how fast and unstoppable our lifestyle is.

Thanks RaKLeZ for motivating comment. I'm trying to do my best and because I've a quite interesting material ( the city I mean ), sometimes it's easy to perform good photo because it would be a shame to miss the good opportunity.

JValjean - i suppose that no, because after war there was no country such as Ukraine and Soviet Republic didn't care about such a propaganda in their own country, but the Polish government did it. I don't know the details.

Ajaj, I must take care of my thread cause it's going down So another pics from Wrocław shall be seen !

141) A palace on the Kościuszki street. Now it has many cultural functions such as dance school etc. I'm waiting impatiently on it's renovation


142) Monumental entrance to the Main Technology Organisation on Piłsudskiego. Before the war this building had political function. Also waiting for the renovation.

145) The underground passage under the Dominikański square. It's a big mistake to chase away people from the ground in such crossings. You can also admire the "streetart"


146) View at Podwale from Partyzantów hill. You can see the kind of tenement houses, which were very common in the southern part of the city. Let Your imagination do rest of the job.

How is Mendelssohn's Schocken store looking today? I visited it with my girl friend (now co-director) in 1977 when we went to Warsaw on bike for our traineeship.
