????? :):):):)

Well, OK, I can, though it would never come to my mind. I thought our members and guests have at least some kind of intelligence and they will know what they might see.

So...

Wrocław Main Square

Here you can see a part of Wrocław Main Square, the one with the controvercial fountain. People are walking across the square and in the background there are buildings, mostly historical tenement houses.

The same applies to most of other links: main squares or streets, people walking and buildings. :):):)

This was weak... ;)
Let me try it: this is the Western side of the Rynek, in German times called the "Sieben-Kurfuersten-Seite" (seven electors side). This part of the square was named after the yellow house on the left side, a Gothic building with a Baroque facade. The facade shows the seven electors of the Holy Roman Empire and the (Austrian) emperor. This side of the square survived WW2 without major damages. After Breslau became Polish the Commies destroyed the facade to get rid of all German traces. After 1990 the facade was reconstructed. The modern building to the left was built in 1930 and was typical for the time, when several architects of the Bauhaus school planned to rebuilt the entire square. Behind the building is the so called salt market, in German times also called Polish market, because Polish traders sold the salt from Wieliczka there. The place was later renamed to "Bluecher Platz" after a big statue of the Prussian general by Christian Daniel Rauch. This very valuable statue was also destroyed by the Commies.

Wow, Pali, your performance is so strong compared to my careless one. Salute. I am serious now. :):):):)

But, may I ask a few questions?

After Breslau became Polish the Commies destroyed the facade to get rid of all German traces.

Why do you say Commies? Some time ago, in another thread about restoration you used Poles.

The modern building to the left was built in 1930 and was typical for the time, when several architects of the Bauhaus school planned to rebuilt the entire square.

When I ask a question about this one, should I say: "Why did Nazis plant such a modern building in the Medieval square?" or "Why did Germans plant.... ? "

The place was later renamed to "Bluecher Platz" after a big statue of the Prussian general by Christian Daniel Rauch. This very valuable statue was also destroyed by the Commies.

Why valuable? Statue is just a statue, it can be made anew, no big deal.

Anybody interested in Wrocław curiosities ? Check out this site: Wrocław Unknown:

Finally, my own photos of the Western side of Wrocław Square:

pawian,

please, write a small amount about what viewers might expect to see.

To aid the visually impaired as well as the curious, I guess.

At about this time of the evening, a few lasses hanging around giving out leaflets to Poles' pole dancing clubs, and probably a few drunk Brits from somewhere like Brentwood on a stag weekend posing by the statues. Check back in an hour for an eccentric, solitary German tourist videoing the busking musicians outside Spiz.

Aaaah, yes! I couldn`t decipher it when it was written without that diacritic mark over z!

Anyway, a funny/silly name to call a pub.... :):)
