I think the gable on both sides need some paint, and the one of the left a new gable or something.... more like an Amsterdamish gable or a stepp gable.

Sgraffito (plural: sgraffiti; sometimes spelled scraffito) is a technique either of wall decor, produced by applying layers of plaster tinted in contrasting colors to a moistened surface, or in ceramics, by applying to an unfired ceramic body two successive layers of contrasting slip, and then in either case scratching so as to produce an outline drawing.

Works by...

Kazimierz Sramkiewicz


Stanislaw Michel




Ewa Topolan

There are many, many more in Gdansk...

Gdansk is so Dutch. And perhaps in many cases even more beautiful than many cities in the Netherlands.

I'm glad you like it.

Krakow looks a bit like Italian city (check also Zamosc, "Padua of North"), Warsaw with her palaces is French-like, Gdansk/Elblag/Torun were/are filled with (mostly reconstructed) Dutch/Flemish mannerism. Kingdom of Poland had many different flavours For example, Dutchman Arend Dickmann (link) was hero in the Battle of Oliwa (between Poland and Sweden) and Tylman van Gameren (later was using polonized name Tylman Gamerski, link) was the best Baroque architect in the whole country. The van den Blocke family and Anthonis van Obbergen (designed together with Jan Strakowski) were probably among the most famous architects (Great Armoury, Golden House, Neptune's Fountain, Artus Court, Great Armoury, Old Town Hall, etc.) in Gdansk.

Thats whats perfect about the cities in the multinational Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, you find a blend of every historic european architectural style in each city in todays Poland.

Pre-War Warsaw (French 19th century architecture, Baroque and Renaissance), Krakow (Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Austrian-Galician inspired 19th century architecture), Gdansk (Gothic, Dutch mannerist and Italian renaissance)

I think the proper word here is "hanseatic". A pity many hanseatic cities lost a lot of their architectural heritage.

Where does Lodz fit into this picture? Or has it lost its historic face in the 20th century? And what about the Silesian cities?

Gdańsk looks Dutch indeed, can't deny Dutch influence into this city.

I have a few Polish friends and they are the loveliest and most fun people I can imagine, so much so they are as fun, warm blooded and lovely as people of Lebanon or Persians and know hoe to party, enjoy life with the little things and also value friendships and love and that makes them such special people and all the reason to believe that Poland has so many potentials of all the best of east and west just as Persia being always conquered and annexed and liberated or capitulated etc but yet managing to stay proud, safeguard it's glorious past and always have the last word and victor.

I was so happy when I heard a few years ago off course that Poland can and will join the EU as I knew that an entire new place to explore and discover will open up.

It still may not be the best place to live since there are some conservative people around but at the rate of which they book progress, rebuild and market their nation, Poland will be the France of the East and sure a hot spot to visit and do business in the coming decades.

I love the history of Poland which is much overshadowed by the rest of Europe but indeed, they have played such a crucial role in all possible categories of history of Europe and beyond and so glad these cities and towns are there and been being rebuilt for all of the World to see, admire and cherish or understand the important role of Polish and Poland on world stage.

Gdansk is absolutely my number 1 top destination to visit when I set foot in Poland but also Wroclaw and Krakow, Warsaw and some castles and palaces.

I can't wait for the spring to arrive so I visit Wroclaw & Krakow with my friends, they ll visit their families and I can accompany them and taste some authentic pyrogi and other yummy too.

Thank you all for all the pictures and historical facts.

Gdansk sure is the most beautiful crowning jewel of Hanseatic cities, have seen Hamburg, Zutphen, Deventer etc etc, but Gdansk is just THE most charming, iconic and fascinating of all of them. Perhaps even, with all due respect, the most beautiful city of all Poland.
