Thanks. It is a small city(50 thousand or so), in southwestern Poland, not very far from the German and Czech borders. Napoleon Bonaparte and his army passed through, as well as spent time in Boleslawiec, on more then one occasion(stupid me, i don't have a photo of where he stayed).

After 1945, the city has been home, to people, of French, Yugoslavian and Eastern Polish descent.

Aside from the square, it looks pretty dingy to me ... but maybe it's just the quality of the photos.

When i think of "dingy", the north end of Toronto comes to mind. The city is actually very clean and not grey at all. It might be the photos. I should of took more pictures of historic locations. I don't even have a picture of where Napoleon stayed, when he was in Boleslawiec.

That very well may be, am I supposed to be offended? My background is Polish and I'm being objective. Aside from the square, this little town looks dingy.

That is because you have never been there. It is not dingy(if you want dingy go to Warsaw). It is very clean, and picturesque. I wish i had more pictures to prove it to you, but unfortunately i don't.

Actually, I've been there. My parents are from Jelenia Gora. Boleslawiec is not interesting outside of the square. And, if you're going to try to prove it otherwise, find some better pictures.

So your telling me that Boleslawiec is dirty, grimy and drab? Are you kidding me, the city is completely clean and well preserved. You must have incredibly high standards, because Boleslawiec is a very nice little town.
