Time to Visit… Architecture of Bydgoszcz
A few weeks ago a few of the other spouses from where my husbands works and I did a guided tour of Bydgoszcz. I have wondered many times when I walk past some building here in town, “what were they in their previous lives?” Well, I got my answer on a few of the buildings. We did about a 2 hour walking tour of just part of the city. I guess I need to organize another tour so I can learn about the other side of the city. We learned quite a few new facts about this neat city.
Our lovely city center.
Walking over one of the city bridges to the old town.
A view from the other direction. Which everyday could look like this.
One of the old buildings getting a face lift. I can’t wait to see the outcome.
This is now a church but previously a store and then offices.
Here is my friends and I learn more about the history of Bydgoszcz.
Our LOVELY tour guide dressed up as the famous Polish actress, Pola Negri, who once lived in Bydgoszcz.
This is now a museum but at one time it was the only hospital in Bydgoszcz.
The beautiful flower stands on the main street, Gdanska.
Looking down the street.
Some of the building here have some neat figures on them.
Looking down another street.
A very art-deco building here in town.
One of the many little parks here in town. There is always someone feeding the birds, like this.
Another street here in town. I love driving down this street.
I have never noticed this on the side on one of the buildings. An artist once lived in that apartment and he put this up during communism time to bring western ideas to here. (If I remember right!)
I love seeing architecture like this around down.
Monkey see, monkey do!
What a view.
I spend a lot of time on this street! Just 2 building down on the right is my church
The interesting things you see when you take the time to look. A Norway flag being flown at this flat.
Here we are learning the history of this building but to be honest I do not remember!
This street is another beautiful street!
Is this not lovely?
I would love to see the inside of these buildings!
This is the famous city “Archer” statue in one of the parks.
One of the communism building built here in town.
With a little work this building would be neat too!
Unfortunately there are many buildings that look like this.
I have driven down many of these streets while living here but to actually walk down them, I saw so much more! I guess I need to do some walking to really get to know this city.
What is your favorite type of architecture? Me, I love just about anything except for modern buildings.
