Those building are pretty and new and it is not same like valuable old buildings. In one hand we have cities like Paris, Rome, Prague, Krakow and in other hand we have cities like Warsaw, Gdańsk, Dresden.
Thats just not true. Łódź has more old/tenement houses (don't know the name for it), believe it or not. Poznań, Toruń, Lublin etc also has historical old towns. I know people from Kraków likes to think their city is the best in the world, but lets not exaggerate, Kraków is not the only city in Poland with old town that was not destroyed, far from it

In case of Łódź nothing is older than 200 years though.

ok people let's not squabble you're all pretty.

yes Krakow has the oldest original intact old town of this size in Poland, but Lodz has the oldest and largest intact 19th/20th century stock of kamienice and industrial factories in Poland and maybe in the world. Warsaw, Gdansk and Dresden were devastated and rebuilt, in latter case reconstruction has really only recently picked up but the results are amazing.

As for Warsaw which I know a lot more about, the old town is mostly newly built, but many buildings were reassembled with original historic components and salvaged bricks and there are many original intact buildings in the old town and almost all of the basements are original some as old as 14h century. According to the Venice charter and Nara document age does necessarily confer authenticity...it's the quality of the reconstruction/restoration. In the case of Warsaw every architectural period was painstakingly reconstructed and the result is a miracle. As for the rest of Warsaw, well yes Lodz does have more intact original 19th/20th century kamienice.

There is nothing wrong about being proud of Krakow, it is spectacular but there are indeed other amazing "original" albeit a little smaller cities like Torun, Lublin, Grudziadz, Zamosc, Wroclaw, Poznan in Poland etc etc. In terms of size of original historic fabric Krakow and Lodz are leaders in Poland for sure followed not too far behind by Warsaw, Torun, Wroclaw...

I think Wroclaw and Lodz in the next few years are really going to flower into Europe's most beautiful historic cities.

As an architecture-student studying in Krakow for this semester I consider myself to be in the right place. Maybe the university is not European's best on the section of architecture, but the city is full of terrific conservation and transformation projects, in which I'm very interested. I loved all the pre/post renovation posts in this topic, great job!

Really one of the most beautiful historic cities I've ever visited.

You are right. The court was. It took at least a hundred yaers or more for most of the ' capital life' to get moved to Warsaw and the actual law confirmation od the new status quo of the cities took place much later. One can look at the both cities architecture and one can see it was not eaerlier than XVII century that Warsaw architekture gained that capital splendour and that it was unquestionably the next century when it got it's momentum. It was XVIII century when more monumental buildings ceased to be built in Kraków. Also the kings were crowned in Kraków and burried here till the actual end of the Polish Kingdom at the very end of XVIII century.
This special role of Krakow for the nation's feelings was important later on and I hope it still is for many of us
