I'm not arguing with you, I believe you, I am looking at overall statistics, which I should post links to but don't have time (am at work still ). Belfast is very cheap, because of the political tensions that have existed there for some time. Belfast is not typical of UK. SO you paid 59k in pounds. Sorry, I'm sure you're happy and its a great town, but I would not compare it to London, Krakow, Munich, Stockholm or Warsaw even. In any case RS UK-PL I wish you all the best in UK, you're heart is in the right place eep up the good work.

I heard that IBM is going to withdraw from Lithuania, because as Lithuania failed to get financing from the EU to match the company’s contributions.

you are absolutely multinationals get a lot of press and fanfare but they are not the big job creators, but they are good at bribing politicians to lower corporate taxes (look at Canada) and then not create jobs. small business creates the most jobs. anyway, time for more pics please RS UK-PL, our friend from wonderful Belfast

I want to start a new Belfast thread in next few days. In my opinion, Belfast doesn't get the attention it deserves (and I don't mean the Troubles or riots caused by pro-British loyalists over union flag vote in recent days, but beautiful architecture from the 19th century like absolutely amazing City Hall or Belfast Castle and of course some astonishing modern buildings like Titanic Belfast).

PS. In 2011, only 7.86 million tourists visited Belfast (they've spent £401 million). I believe that number of 10 million visitors in a single year can be easily reached, especially that city has much to offer.

Great Polish Archietcture from before WW2!

To RS UK-PL. Absolute great what Poland showed on modern Architecture before WW2. This can easily be compared to efforts by Germany, Great-Britain and France (and Finland!). Other countries in Europe tend to lag behind. In the Netherlands fine examples were in small numbers, mostly built in the 3 big cities: Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague.

RS UK-PL: all your photographs are absolute stunning. Compared what Poland accomplishes nowadays in Warsaw, Danzig, Zopot, Elbing and cities as Breslau (Wroclaw) these efforts can be valued as: first class!!!
They outperform the German reconstruction efforts easily which are focussed on a tiny part of Dresden and Potsdam. Naturally this is possible because of the full support of the Polish population, while the Germans seemingly are not stirred by the reconstructions. Only a minority of the population seems to support reconstruction plans.
