A lot of the architecture reminds me of Italian styles...
I don't know much about it, but what would we call this architectural style?

Thanks. That's what came to mind, but I wasn't sure...I've never really seen many examples of this (since I live in the US :P)

Baroque is very beautiful, but can become overly fussy and a real nightmare on the eyes when overdone. Luckily the style is quite expensive and therefore limited to key buildings, though i believe Dresden had alot of these buildings before the war, and looking through the Dresden reconstruction thread a few of them were spectacular and some can only be described as vulgar!

Heading towards a modern shopping mall, i didnt take any pics of it as it was a bit anodyne and bland

They do, but usually in small towns or villages in more rural areas (BAVARIA!!!!), not in the big cities (itīs a bit old fashioned to dance around it) ... just have a look at "Maibaum" (in english) .Till now i always thought it is a more South German and Austrian tradition but nice to hear, that they even have them in the UK... i was born in Baden-Württemberg, near the swiss border and it was tradition to put a small maypole on the roof of the house where your secret love lives...I donīt know if that is still practiced (i never did)...i guess not (just asked my 19years old sister...she laughed...)

The May pole and Morris dancers are a very traditional southern English thing (not really seen in other countries of the UK or the north from my experiance). Seriously check out morris dancers if you want a laugh lol!

Apart from Barwick (-in-Elmet, just outside Leeds). Strangely enough I can't remember having seen another maypole in my life, though I probably have.
