K is for Klodzko's Architecture, Poland

I've always dreamed of visiting Poland. A dream that is yet to come true. In my postcards collection, Poland is in the top 5 country from where I have the most nicest cards from.

Coming from another country that was badly damaged during WW2, I am curious how Poland was able to retain its culture and rehabilitate from the war.

Klodzko, stare miasto. Old Town. These are the descriptions at the back of the card. The sender wrote:

Klodzko, due to the unusual architecture is called "small Prague.". It is one of the most picturesque Polish towns.

Did you notice it looks like there's a cat coming out from the window of the pink house on the right? Is it just me and my imagination?

  2. Hi Maria .. that looks a beautiful row of houses .. Klodzko sounds like an interesting architect ... and one day I'd love to visit Poland ... Prague is meant to be stunning .. but I was there when it was covered in builders and works etc .. after the invasion in 1968 - so I didn't see it at all.

    Cheers Hilary

  5. I don't know what that is! It looks like a cat, but when I blow it up I can't tell. It's a lovely postcard anyway.
