129) But we don't have in Wrocław only great things. In some places we still feel the burden of 60 years of idleness. The development of our city started after the fall of comunism and we have to make up for lost time...


130) And it's also typical for our city to see many block of flats. The back elevation of one of block of flats.

Let's take a look at the "Wyspa Piaskowa" island.

And another beautiful Polish city that I need to visit!!!!
So it was 65% destroyed in WW2? Well, the reconstruction was well done, the city center looks a lot better than many not-so-destroyed city centres in Western Europe. The 60s and 70s building boom in Western Europe caused as much (or more) damage than WW2 to our city centres.

Only some parts of the Old town were reconstructed after WWII (and all churches which were built before 19th century).

Southern and Western parts of the city vanished during WWII and were not reconstructed. Nowadays, we can find there an "impressive" collection of commie blocks.
