It would be more like "Wudj" or "Woodj", depending on how you pronounce.

After hearing "Szczecin", I'd say it is pronounced Shtchechin.

English is a tricky thing.

But let's get back to revitalizations.

Clearly, this owner has a problem with good taste (or he/she is colorblind).
Well small shop owners like that tend to think they can attract more people by using strong colors, preferably completely different to the ones used by other small shop owners so this bad taste is part of their "strategy" to some extent. Also multiple advertisments even if they're near each other and have exactly the same message because more is always better.

This one's surely one of the most impressive. You wouldn't think many of the 'before' buildings were salvageable.

Poles can fix anything that's destroyed.

'VW Tiguan 2008 sold to Poland.

Have a lot of fun with reconstructing it!

Wow, that last one from Poznan is awful. It does not look nicely done at all.

It was just repainted. I'd say 'awful' if it was covered in colorful alucobond panels.
