Wikipedia:
Quote:
Most of the city was destroyed during World War II. Next to the remnants of Gothic architecture the ruins of splendid edificies from the time of the Congress Poland and ferroconcrete relics of prewar bilding jutted out of the of rubble.

After the war many of the historic streets, buildings, and churches were restored to their original form. In 1980, Warsaw's historic Old Town was inscribed onto UNESCO's World Heritage list.

We start at the so called New Town or Nowe Miasto.
A misleading name, cause this part of the city dates back from the 14th century and was founded only 100 years after the first city-centre.

Wikipedia:

Quote:
Gdańsk is the city at the centre of the fourth-largest metropolitan area in Poland. It is Poland's principal seaport as well as the capital of the Pomeranian Voivodeship.

The city lies on the southern edge of Gdańsk Bay (of the Baltic Sea), in a conurbation with the spa town of Sopot, the city of Gdynia and suburban communities, which together form a metropolitan area called the Tricity (Trójmiasto), with a population of over 800,000. Gdańsk itself has a population of 458,053, making it the largest city in the Pomerania region of Northern Poland.

Together with the nearby port of Gdynia, Gdańsk is also an important industrial center. Historically an important seaport and shipbuilding center, Gdańsk was a member of the Hanseatic League.

The city was the birthplace of the Solidarity movement which, under the leadership of Gdańsk political activist Lech Wałęsa, played a major role in bringing an end to communist rule across Central Europe.

Nice buildings, but not thŕt unique.
There's a lot of that kind of modernistic architecture in cities as Brussels and Antwerp.
Howaeer, we only stayed in Gdynia for one day, so we couldn't explore the whole city.
But I liked the waterfront very much.
I suppose the skyscrapers there has been finished by now? Do you have any pictures of that towers?
