Why don't you go visit Greatest cities lost during WWII - (Maximum 5 images per post, Pre-war images only)- page 14. There's one poster there making stupid and provocative remarks (and no photo credits either!).

I don't see any moderators there. Discriminate much?

Don't worry, we will get to that area soon. This is a big forum and it will take a while to clean up the mess. But from now, everybody needs to follow the rules the mod team have set up, no exception!

Could you tell what's the street on a photo. I mean today. Tenement houses seems to be in a quite good condition.

there has been a pattern set for some time of targetting Polish sites, on its face it looks very discriminatory. I have witnessed outright hate speech against Poland/Poles condoning murder of Poles as ok escape detection for weeks until a Polish moderator intervened. time to come out in full force people and stop this or move to our own Polish sites permanently.

I'm just wondering why Waly Jagiellonskie Street doesn't look like one of the streets below? Maybe Polish architects had different plans after WW2, e.g. reconstruction of the city walls, improving the panorama of the Main Town?

Gdynia (Swietojanska Street)


Gdansk-Wrzeszcz (Grunwaldzka Street)


Nicolaus Copernicus 540th birthday celebrated

The Fishmarket along Rybackie pobrzeze street next to Motlawa

What do you think, should the pre-war fish market return to the Rybackie pobrzeze street, the former Fischbrucke (right next to the Hilton Hotel)?

I think this cheap to organize and easy to handle market could have potential of becoming a great tourist attraction for visitors in Gdansk.

Some of the church interiors in Krakow (the city was left almost unscathed during the war)
























--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Gdansk (interiors of all the churches within the Main Town, Old Suburb and Old Town)

I think it has more to do with the fact that most of Cracow's churches were occupied by Catholics (with ample and lavish barocco style) whereas in Gdansk predominant religion was Protestantism, which preferred modest interiors

It might be true. Before Kulturkampf, 43.2% of the populace was Catholic and in 1924, only about 34.5% (140,797 inhabitants).

Also, you probably have noticed that actually just one church interior was spared in WW2 (see below)...


Btw, Royal Chapel (founded by King John III Sobieski and the primate Andrzej Olszewski) interior before WW2


Now


St.Joseph's Church before the war


Now


If you want to visit extraordinary beautiful churches in this part of Europe, I would recommend churches of Krakow, Vilnius and Lviv.

I agree with you. I suppose it will take tens (or even hundreds) of years to fill the empty spaces again...
