Gdańsk Oliwa - Olivia Business Centre

Gdańsk Oliwa - Olivia Business Centre

Olivia Business Center in Gdansk at night. I have strange feelings when I look at these glass factories. Those who work there probably feel somehow honored - they can look at the world from modern office buildings and from above. For me, a man who escaped from the city and abandoned the corporation, it is a glass cage in which I would not be locked up ...

St. Mary's Basilica in Gdańsk

St. Mary's Basilica in Gdańsk

The Co-Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (the so-called St. Mary's Basilica) in the Old Town of Gdańsk. From this perspective, it looks like a giant brick ship sailing through "waves of tenement houses". The tower of St. Mary's Basilica was built in 1466 and is 77 meters high up to the edge of the roof. You can enter the observation deck on the tower - you only need to climb stairs with 409 steps. It is worth going there because the views are unforgettable.

Pictures of Gdansk

Pictures of Gdansk

I like the vividness of such pictures - with light mists and soft light, the further plans blur a bit as if they were painted with watercolors. Gdańsk like painted: St. Mary's Basilica and Main Town Hall, old town. A Christmas tree is already standing on the Long Market (Dlugi Targ) at Neptune .... Gdańsk is almost ready for Christmas. Now we're just waiting for snow...

Wisłoujście Fortress

The Wisłoujście Fortress (Twierdza Wisłoujście) is a historic fortress located at the entrance to the port of Gdańsk. It is the oldest seaside fortification on the Polish coast. The first wooden port watchtower was probably built here in the 13th century. The brick tower in the center was built in 1482. Until 1758 it was a lighthouse. There was a fire on the tower that showed the ships the way to the port.
