The photos are of the former Radogoszcz prison in Łódź. In WW2 it was a German Order Police and Gestapo prison. Today it is a museum commemorating its wartime victims. There is also a mausoleum there containing the remains of about 1500 prisoners who were burned alive on the night of 17-18 January 1945.

The Radogue Spire is 30 metres high and was designed by Tadeusz Herburt.

This is a good picture of the monument intended for a riddle. It doesn't show Adam, so it is not easy to guess what monument it is. Chapeaux bas to Joker!

You're around 300mi away, its too obscure and isnt on google maps either.

Heres a nice Post Office, name the location?

It looks like a Post Office in Sandomierz to me. If not in Sandomierz, then it must be in one of the towns of the historic area of Małopolska (Little Poland).

Yes, you nailed it! I like this town with all the little shops and restaurants. It looks like a nice tourist destination during the summer as well.

Obviously I did a bit more walking and exploring than you when you visited this place.

Rabka-Zdrój cemetery.

Aargh, quite possible.:):) As for walking and exploring Rabka, we never did it in the cemetery. There was no need coz I don`t remember any special monuments there.

He couldn't see a slightest contradiction between being Polish and Lithuanian at the same time.

Like being English/Scottish and British at the same time?

was dropped off near this train station????

If it is a riddle, only another traveller who once visited this place will be able to guess.

Yes! But you showed us the conservative bright white building, while mine is liberal rainbow. hahaha

Easy allright Poznan international fair building.

Yes!

Another question without a picture: What structure does Krakow have in bigger supply than any other city in the world?

It's got the most clubs and bars than anywhere else , but it also has many good universities

I am sorry, no, I was talking about structures, not institutions. Besides, I am sure London and smaller cities in the UK have more bars , pubs etc.

And bars and clubs are structures are they not!!!!

So your question is fulfilled, don't cheat because a correct answer didn't suit YOU.

LEARN how to phrase your questions better if you have a precise answer in mind.

many are saying that your credibility on this forum is wearing thin, now run along and post some pictures.

Told you that I am ten times smarter than YOU ha,ha,ha

No, they are institutions, genius. hahaha You can bring and install some drink/food service equipment and furniture in your potato field and you already have a bar. Is it a structure? No.

So your question is fulfilled,

Nope ,it isn`t. :):) Try harder. Think!!!

So, the question is still about the structures.

Told you that I am ten times smarter than YOU ha,ha,ha

The fact that imbeciles say sth doesn`t instantly make it holy truth. hahaha

now run along and post some pictures.

Not before you show some intelligence at last. :):)

I will give you a hint:
So, what structures does Krakow have in abundant supply that other cities don`t - not even one?

Now you are being silly, just post the pictures twitty :)

Nope, you must think first. How well do you know Krakow? These structures are famous in Krakow and the world, but google won`t give you a direct answer to my question.

Another hint:
they are very old. :):)

Its got a dragon, salt mines, and it stinks in winter.
OP pawian 173 | 12,567
1 Apr 2020 #177
Dragon is one and there is only one salt mine but not in Krakow proper. While I said sth about structures in plural.

I will develop my previous hint: they are not only old but very old: even ancient. London has some but NYC - none.

Kraków mounds.
OP pawian 173 | 12,567

Bull`s eye bingo! Wow! What a comeback. Like a glove. :):)

Of course, I was talking about mounds - 5 of them - two ancient from 7th century.

And now, this is the view from one of them: which one?
