Gdansk is truly a wonderful city. It keeps amazing me how Poland has rebuilt and still is rebuilding its historical cities. Thanks for all the photo posts.

At first I thought it must have been made early in the morning. But no, the shadow direction shows it was close to the noon.

Was it so empty then that one was able to make such a photo, or is it an extremely long exposition time (in daylight?!) that everything moving simply blurred out?

Restauration of the reconstructed St.Johns church

This mighty bell from 1543 A.D. will soon return to the tower and be used for the first time since 1945.

Forumers, do you know if there's any chance for more reconstructions in Gdansk? It seems that in the 70s process was completely stopped and since then only small details are reconstructed, such as bells, towers, clocks, etc. Such a shame, 30-40 more years of Polish marvelous work and we would've had one of the most beautiful cities in Europe...hands down.

There were plans to rebuild 190 tenement houses in 2003 (the Main Town would've been 15% larger), however this idea was rejected

Before WW2 and after reconstruction


Interior of the Main Town Hall before WW2 and after reconstruction (360 View)

The ceiling is decorated with a painting ("Entry of Polish king John III Sobieski into Gdansk in 1677") by Jozefa Wnukowa.

White Room in the Main Town Hall before WW2 and after reconstruction to the pre-1793 appearance

Some paintings have been restored, e.g. portraits of Polish kings, some were probably lost forever, such as works by Krzysztof Boguszewski ("Battle of Grunwald") or "Battle of Oliwa" by Bartlomiej Milwitz.

Yellow - Old Town (not reconstructed)
Green - Main Town (the area filled with many reconstructions)
Red - Old Suburb (not reconstructed)
Orange - Granary Island (not reconstructed)

Gdansk in 1600 (in my opinion this area should be rebuilt)


Now


Before WW2


PS. On the photo taken before WW2, the yellow line shows border of Granary Island.
