Thx

Something from Lower Silesia this time. On this page I'll show 2 towns in Kłodzko County:

Kłodzko - town with population about 30 000 (but in some part it looks like a big city)
There's unique and huge fortress on a rock near Old Town.

Actually I'm polish; it has nothing to do with the nationalism. Those are facts. The siliesian cities shown on the pictures above in fact are german as well as Wrocław vel Breslau, Szczecin, Gdańsk, Olsztyn. Legnica and many others. The political or social convictions are one thing but the right mesure applied to architectural evaluation is another. Indeed regarding the pictures no one would say that they deoict polish architecture.

And concerning Lwów, Stanisławów, Stryj, Wilno and Grodno those are polich cities which have found themselves on the other side of the border. Once again it ha no connection with my political opinions or wishes.

The same story again.

Lower Silesia was Czech before XI century, then Polish, since XIV century Czech again and since 1526 Austrian. It was German since 1741 and Polish again since 1945 (that's why there are a lot of buildings from German times in undamaged cities, especially beyond Old Towns)

This is the end of this offtopic in my picture thread. I had the same problem in Pictures of Poland, people doesn't know much about Silesian history and buildings, but they write a lot of interesting things about this.

Next pics
