Sarajevo,
is it some kind of a national program of redevelopment??

Because it looks like a mass, huge process of revitalizing, not as a random shots of random buildings..

A couple of my night pix of a newly placed bridge span over the Cybina river arm in Poznań, the bridge is now called "Bishop Jordan's Bridge" . This bridge used to connect the two banks of the Warta river in a different location more down south from its current position. It was then removed and placed aside for approximately two years only later to be renovated and painted and found its new location in a place of an ancient route going past the Poznań cathedral further west. There used to be a bridge already in the middle ages, then in the pre-war time there was an iron bridge where even the trams used to run but now it's pedestrians only. It is expected the bridge will throw more life into the a bit run-down district of Śródka on the other side of the river.



















The prewar bridge

And some pix from the "construction" period.




this where the bridge span used wait for its final location


the bridge got its first layers of new paint





The process of moving the span was quite spectacular to watch so no wonder it gathered crowds.


here the span was being lifted over another bridge, for this reason the tram catenary had to removed for the period of moving the span




the span already on the other side of the bridge




and here it has already reached its final destination






But still a lot work had to be done, two last photos by rzuwig

There's an entire thread dedicated to this bridge on the Polish Skyscrapercity Forum at http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=165179

These pics only reinforce my previous belief, that Sarajevo must be the nicest city in whole Balkans.

And it does, well, more or less... In many cases it is acctually stunning.

All i see here is just a regular late 19th early 20th century historism and art nouveau buildings, which are of course nice, but nothing particularly overwhelming.

I love Wroclaw. It has a reputation of poland's most dynamically developing city. Its future looks promising and it may just be my new 'home town' in the next couple of years, once I complete school.
