My trip to Silesia, today Poland

Very interesting story on that small piece of earth. I visited Breslau and Oppeln as the somewhat larger cities.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silesia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wroc%C5%82aw
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opole

Breslau market place:


See the double headed eagle of the Habsburg monarchy at the university




Resident rulers








City of Oppeln, about 130.00 inhabitants with a university


Townhall


Market Place called the "Ring", still it is square




This Relic contains a splinter from the Holy Cross of Jesus Christ




October weather


Found that somewhere in nowhere




First a german than changed to a soviet memorial.


Built in the Third Reich


From the Annaberg.


Back to good old Germany

It was not changed to a Soviet memorial, maybe you meant the socialist style but it's a monument of the Silesian Uprisings.

It's my impression that "Breslau" and "Oppeln" have ceased to hold meaning as international names signifying any now-existing places. These names have a historical significance, like "Karl-Marx Stadt" or "Gottwaldov". And who knows what "Annaberg" is?

Thanks for a few atmospheric photos.
