To be fair, I find Gdynia architecturally unappealing. Not my style.

Poznań had nothing to do with Germany until year 1793, so the old town was built by Poles together with imported Italian architects, just like all the rest of nice Polish cities.

Depends on what you call specific. It obviously didn't invent the renaissance, but Polish renaissance architecure is a specification, being divided into 3 periods. There is a very particular wooden architecture in the mountain regions, including rare types of churches that are on the Unesco list. And so on.

Anyway, let's turn back to modern Polish architecture, since you have been derailling this thread .

As mister Daniec said "...the oldest national heritage in America is 115 years old, hahaha, it's a wooden governor's house. Give me a break. I have a mate in Krakow who lives in tenement which is 850 years old, and you do not need any keeper or carpet sleepers to live there". So at the time when Poles have build solid monuments like bricked, majestic cathedrals, the area from Malibu to Manhattan was just one huge Indian pasture. Sorry for off topic. Anyway Polish architecture is a bit different, because Polish land has poor resources of stone (except some areas like Kazimierz Dolny). Therefore almost every sacral building was build by bricks. However, Poles figured out how to deal with this material, they developed the way of making ornaments. The design is not poor, and the creativity gets out of the single square centimeter from that monumental constructions. They are as breath taking as the stone ones, so i wouldn't say that Polish architecture (especially Gothic, and renaissance) is not stylish.

Do not forget Wrocław was German for just 204 years in its over 1,000 year history. (1741-1945)
