Gdansk – Timber Framed Houses

This type of architecture, timber framing, was very popular in Europe in 19th century and earlier. This house functions as a small cafe at the corner of the street. Timber framed houses can still be found in old cities as well as small villages in Poland. Sometimes the houses are renovated in such a way that they combine the old with the new – adding glass and even the timber-framed facade.

Gdansk, Poland.
