University of Wroclaw by Night

Did you ever try to take a night shot without a tripod? First thing you try is to put the camera on something stable to keep it steady. In this case, unfortunately there was nothing stable around. So best thing I could do is to put the cam on the ground and keep it steady with my hand. Obviously that took me a lot of shots to be somewhat pleased with the result. Luckily things changed now that I have my tripod.

On the photo you see the main building of the University of Wroclaw (Uniwersytet Wrocławski). Established in 1702 the University of Wroclaw is one of the oldest higher education institutions in Central Europe.

Monument in Gdynia

Monument in Gdynia

Monument in Gdynia is not the best description you say? Well, there is not much more information I could get about that even though I was visiting Gdynia with locals. The only thing they could tell me, is that it comes from the communistic times. Close to it is the Joseph Conrad Monument, but I doubt that they are connected. Maybe you can help me with some information?

Tumski Bridge, Wroclaw

Tumski Bridge, Wroclaw

The Tumski Bridge (Most Tumski) in Wroclaw, also called Lovers Bridge or Cathedral Bridge, leads to the Cathedral Area of Wroclaw. The name Lovers Bridge it got from the countless locks on it with which lovers are symboling their love. And the reason for the name Cathedral Bridge you can see in the background of the photo, the two towers of the Wroclaw Cathedral.

University Library in Gdańsk

University Library in GdańskSo far that has been the most interesting modern Library building I’ve seen. I was passing it every morning for two weeks on the way to my language course and I was always wondering what the 3 little “turbines” on each side are for. One day I went in to check it out, and can you believe it? They are three “single reading rooms”, where you can take your books, close the door behind you and have calm space to read. How cool was that idea of the architect?
