We all have it – the special place that is IT. A place where we live now or want to come back to; a place that speaks to our hearts. For me it is here. An unassuming city in a country far, far away from where I live now. Gliwice, in Poland. Welcome to my home town 🙂
These are apartment building in the town square. They are old, but beautifully renovated. This is a good place to live if you like to be in the center of all that is going on – you should also like contemporary music of all kinds. Town square is the place where during summer all sorts of concerts take place.
The Town Hall is where wedding ceremonies are conducted. On the second floor is a room dedicated to this noble purpose. From spring till fall during all weekends one my admire brides and grooms taking pictures in the square. It is lovely place relax, sip coffee, feed pigeons, and observe people.
This mysterious looking place is the arcade on the side of Town Hall.
This magnificent building houses a post office.
This is one of the most elaborate and grand buildings in the city. It has always been a hotel. Back in the day when Gliwice was a German city, this was the most luxurious hotel where all the rich people stayed. Today the first floor houses a restaurant and a bank.
