As you probably know, cars are a very rare thing in Venice. So instead you take these luxury gondolas to get from A to B. Just kidding, it’s obviously used more as a tourist rip off, but anyways, without them Venice wouldn’t be the way we know it.
Another photo of the beautiful town square of Świdnica. Notice the narrow house, and imagine applying at a public office to get a building permit for that!
Happy 2013 my dear followers! I want to start the new year with a photo from Italy, as that has been my best vacation in the last time. And who knows, maybe in 2013 I’ll find some time to go back there?
Here you see the Piazza delle Erbe in Verona, the tower is called Torre dei Lamberti (construction started in 1172). During the time of the Roman Empire this square was the town’s forum.
It’s done, 2012 is over. And as a thanks to all my frequent visitors, finally a photo including myself on it. What do you think, how good do I represent the Stereotype of a German Tourist? I wish you all a “guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr” as we say in Germany. See you in 2013.
Świdnica is a small town in Silesia and Rynek is the polish word for market. So what you see is the center of Świdnica, a town with a long and complex history, being often part of different countries like Bohemia, Austria, Germany and now Poland.
