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.

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?

Youth of the Nation

Inside Wroclaw University

The picture shows the inside of the University in Wrocław. Better: The department of polish philology.
For me as an economist, it was always unclear how people can dedicate their life to their language and literature. But especially if you got taught a bit about polish history, you know how important that was and still is.
One of the main reason we have a polish state today, is because the polish people always kept their language, even if their state wasn’t existing for a long time. So if you know that, you get a feeling that this building of the university might be one of the most important places for the nation.

Uniwersytet Gdański

Uniwersytet GdańskiSo 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?
