So 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?
With that one I got lucky. First of all: A nicely colored sunset. Second, Fishermen for something interesting in the front. Third, the green “Island” on the left (which isn’t an island, the boat was taking it out later back to the sea. Guess it just drifted to the port.). And all that in front of the famous riverside of Gdansk.
So this is the building of the University of Gdansk (Uniwersytet Gdański), where I tried to gain more knowledge about that beautiful, but difficult language. It sure has been a wonderful time to study in that modern University. I mean how awesome is it, when you can reach the beach of the Baltic Sea by tram right from your University? More information on the photo!
You already know this view, but last time I showed a photo from the sunset. Well, there was a second day that I came to Gdansk, and this time it was a bit later. As I wasn’t alone, I couldn’t spend enough time on that shot as I would have liked to. Read more!
When I was in Gdansk (Gdańsk), Poland, for a language and culture course, our schedule was so packed that we barely had any free time. You have to know that this area is known as Tricity (Trójmiasto) consisting of the cities Gdansk, Gdynia and Sopot. We were accommodated somewhere between Gdansk and Sopot, so every time I wanted to take some pictures I first had to catch a train. So in the end I only managed to see se old town of Gdansk twice, but at least I could capture a nice sunset. The picture was taken on the bridge in front of the green gate (zielona brama).
