The old part of the city .

3rd September 2014

My hometown divides into two parts: the first one which is very old and historical and the second part where people live.
Of course the old part is more interesting because suburbs are modern and it means concrete living.

Below the last photos of the old town.

The house dates back from 19th century.

The building was built in 1926. Before the WWII was the secondary school.Now is Registry Office.






Our Registry Office.




Typical house where blue-collars lived in the 19th century.

The quiet street with detached houses. It is interesting because those houses are very expensive here. 



Green and quiet streets.

  5. So many interesting things to look at! The frieze above the door of the apartment building seems to reflect the jobs of those who lived there. And the sculpture with the two interconnecting circles -- what is the green part? Is it all made of real plants? I'd sure love to go inside some of those old buildings.

    2. Cynthia, you are right the frieze above the door reflects the jobs of its inhabitants. Mainly miners lived there. Yes, the sculpture is made of flowers in American English hens and chicks. There are a lot decorations made of flowers here. It is masterpiece for. I will put a clock made of flowers. Maybe at the weekend.

    3. What about my work . We came back to school as teachers the last week of August. We have had teachers' meeting and preparations for the new school year. Every year officially we start school on 1st September and finish last Friday of June. We have summer holidays at the same period in all country but winter holidays ( two weeks in January or February) two or three provinces at the same time. Christmas holidays 2 weeks and Easter holidays at the same time. All exams after elementary school, high Junior School and Matura exams are at the same period. Ministry for Education is responsible for education in the country so standards are the same. Our system of education is very formal but according to European Union one of the best in Europe. I am not so sure. Too many classes, exams, and stressful ...

  7. If only the buildings could talk; they certainly would have some interesting stories to tell! This post takes me right back in time to all the history I've read about Poland!
