I can only say bravo to that attempt, despite minor "maybe it could be better" building. Those are irrelevant, in "the" one rightful path to future of meaning.

I've been in Amsterdam and there is nothing Gdańsk could be compared with Amsterdam.

Kidding me? Amsterdam has a way more beautiful historical core, though Gdansk did a lot of amazing reconstructions.....

Amsterdam looks dull and greyish, it always depresses me. I like colourful Gdansk more.

But nothing wrong with Amsterdam & it's pretty characteristic canals and centuries old buildings. It has its charms.

I might change my mind when I v visited Gdansk too.

I think that we must be grateful to polish people. They did a wonderful job in Gdansk, Wroclaw, Warsaw....

Sometimes I think to myself: how do you find strenght to rebuild things after your whole world has been completely torn down, sometimes to the bare ground? How come the people those 60-70 years ago had the strenght not only to build anew (and they could build just new modern blocks) but to reconstruct things so masterfully and painstaikingly?

Just big big respect to all those who did this, especially in countries that were completely destroyed by the war, especially Poland and Germany.

If they don't restore that, they be lost in the World and be nomads.


That is their " identity " , it s their past and they ll only reach for the future if they build a bridge with their rich and glorious past.
