The refined elegance of Polish facades and signboards

It is almost the end of the month since new signboards design rules came into force. The city has dressed the bright greenery, flowers and less compulsive, but more intelligent ‘messages on the facades’.

Gdansk is first of all the port. It is the most important economic center in Poland. More than 462 thousand inhabitants live here. Besides, it is the custodian of the unique monuments of the Polish culture. The unique and inimitable atmosphere, created by the city residents soars everywhere – on the streets, in the concert halls, cafes and pubs.

You will examine with tremendous interest every façade for a long time after visiting the historical center of Gdansk for the first time. Remembering the difficult and sometimes tragic events of this city (because of the mass assaults and bombing the city center of Gdansk was destroyed on 80% during the Second World War) you feel more admiration to the caring residents who had restored the ancient luster and the environment of this city.
