Hello, this will be My own authority tread about city which I think wasn't here before.
Tread will be keep in periodic way. I would like to show here things from city life, buildings, and nature. For each part of tread will be included map with markers where the pictures was made. Now we have summer time and this is the best part of a year to show city, because Opole is very green city.

For begging a few information:

Opole [ɔˈpɔlɛ] ( ) (German: Oppeln, Silesian German: Uppeln, Silesian: Uopole) is a city in southern Poland on the Oder River (Odra). It has a population of 125,992 (June 2009) and is the capital of the Upper Silesia, Opole Voivodeship and, also the seat of Opole County. Today, many German Upper Silesians and Poles of German ancestry live in the Opole region; in the city itself, however, Germans make up less than 3% of the population.

We start close to the Odra river, because city is very close to the water. In my opinion best areas are on Pasieka Island
which is surrounding from one side by Odra river and from other side by old Odra bed which is now a canal called Młynówka.

1.(A) Quay of Odra river and headland called Ostrówek on Pasieka Island,



2. behind my back first highrises build in Opole,



3. highrises on Zaodrze district, most devastated part of Opole during flood in 1997,



4.



5. sunbathing,



6.(B) Pamięci Sybiraków Bridge,



7.



8. Piastowski bridge and highest apartment building in Opole,



9. against flood gate on Młynówka canal, voivodship main building, Piastowska tower, Hotel Piast, PiastowskI Bridge,



10.
