Gdańsk (Poland)

Last weekend I visited Gdańsk with some friends. Gdańsk is a Polish city on the Baltic coast. Parts of the historic old city of Gdańsk, which had suffered large-scale destruction at the hands of the Soviet Army, was rebuilt during the 1950s and 1960s. Wikipedia

Below the photo report of an almost entirely rebuilt citycenter.

Love those hanseatic cities, and Danzig seems to keep its charm. The pictures are great, thanks for sharing

Fantastic photographs of Gdansk. There was a photographic exhibition ( & a book) in my home city ( Liverpool) entitled 'Cities on the Edge', and Gdansk was one of those featured cities - along with Liverpool, Bremen, Marseilles, Naples, Hamburg.

Gdansk looks very characterful. I love the brightly painted buildings.

Today's Gdansk is a few authentic city, a kind of Disneyland, and there is a lot of fake, but who likes it ...
Gdansk never can be UNESCO's World Heritage Site.

It's more authentic than Hamburgerland. Get lost.

Because it was rebuilt painstakingly to follow historic construction (however not always) just as much of Gdansk's Old City was along with other UNESCO's sites around the world ...According to Letniczka we might as well knock off many other cities off of UNESCO's site b/c apparently reconstruction is not 'legitimate'
