I wouldn't put it like this - some, SOME ideas that formed between 1945 and 1989 are worth protection, but IMO f.eg all these dreadful blocks should have been blown away

Well, to be fair Hitler did start the shitfest when he crossed that border, then Stalin and all the folks from Moscow went and suppressed you guys after the war so that you couldn't properly develop as Poland was intended.

Thank God for the Pope and the Mustache'd Man, that's all I can say.

Main road nr 81 Katowice - Ustroń (Silesian Voivodship). Two lanes, but no highway (this road have got crossings, not interchanges). This road is mainly for tourist from Upper Silesian Metropolitan Region, which comes to Ustroń (Beskidy mountains) for summer and winter holidays
























Ujek z Nimiec (uncle from Germany in Silesian)

Oh, I know that these definitions changed a little, but I meant the road build for Edward Gierek, from Warsaw to his summer villa in Ustroń
