If only the progress in construction work will be visible, I will try to paste the image. If you're interested, I invite you to a thread about revitalization in Wloclawek

This actually I would call not a very fancy treat to a decent building. This reflective bleu glass didn't really improve the poor quality of such a concrete, prefabricate architecture. It only made it more ackward, since we are not really sure if it was like this from the beginning, and it doesn't fit and match in the eyes. Although I am not a big fan of brutalism, at leat in the original version of the building I at least could tell the intentions of the architect. Now I can't.

It is clear for me now that Poland is living a huge development at the moment. Living here, not travelling to much you might not see it

Beautiful restorations in Poland that do justice to its amazing history.


In honour of that history, let's also remember that

Since the beginning of the 19th century, Włocławek had a flourishing, sizable Jewish population. After the Nazi occupation in 1939, it became the first town in Europe in which Jews were required to wear yellow Stars of David.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W%C5%82oc%C5%82awek[/URL


Zamość was a major centre of Jewish life too and birthplace to one of the most important Yiddish authors in history, Isaac Leib Peretz.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Leib_Peretz


I'd love to see some evidence of Poland's thousand-year-old Jewish heritage in these amazing renovations. Dziekuje.

Šiauliai, Lithuania.

This almost 800 year old city had it particularly tough - was bombed to the ground during both WW1 and WW2

There is such interesting khmm... fountain? installation? monument? - I'm confused how to call it - on the square:



The main symbols of the city - the Cathedral and Townhall buildings.





The church solo:

1,3km long Vilnius street - the main street of Šiauliai. Fully pedestrian since 1930's.

Some cinema with cafe offering also Lithuanian national meal - "Zeppelins" (potato paste with meat inside). It was closed though.



From Pansori's threads I know that Chinese food is very popular in Lithuania, and I saw it Šiauliai too...



Didždvaris gymnasium





I've got impression that 2 of the leading Lithuanian beers are "Švyturis" and "Kalnapilis". I tried both. "Švyturis" is a really good beer - can recommend it to everyone, when you're in Lithuania. Can't say the same about "Kalnapilis" though.



Danish "Carlsberg" beer street cafe exactly opposite to "Švyturis" on Vilnius street:



Vilnius street from it's western part

507 is the age since Panevežys was first mentioned. Looks like they will try to change the figure every new year, as you can still see the "6" imprint from the last year.

Hotel one side of the park:



And this will tell you something about the great bycicle road infrastructure in and around Panevežys:
