Protestant Church by night

Hi all
Though I'm currently not in Katowice, an occasional update may happen in this blog, thanks to a good soul PAK who kindly gave mi permission to post some of his photos here :) Thanx PAK!

The protestant church in Katowice is the oldest church in Katowice an was built from 1856 to 1858 by the architect Richard Lucae. Since then there have been two rebuildings (1887-1889 and 1899-1902). (info source: wiki)

Oak Terraces

Sorry for neglecting the blog for so long... It was not without a reason: I relocated last year and cannot take photos of Katowice on daily basis any more. Leaving the place where I lived all my life was not easy, and saying good bye in my blog whould have only added to my already emotional mood then. But now when I came to accept the situation, I return here for memories :) So, the blog is suspended. Temporarily - as I am sure to return, either to visit, or for good, who knows...
I visited for Christmas and took this photo of Oak Terraces and a fragment of the car park at Silesia City Centre, packed with cars. Normally it's not that crowded, but it was Christmas shopping time.
Until next time then - Kjola

The Student in all his glory. The body is quite "contemporary", while the head in the graduation cap is the one of a kuros, a Greek representation of male youth.

The Student Statue

The Student Statue is a new news in Katowice... It is located it in front of the Rector's Office of the Silesian University. The statue had evoked some excitement before it was put on display, as there had been rumours about a scantily clad, well built young man with a graduation cap on...

Come back tomorrow. I'll post the photo of the WHOLE statue ;)

Silesian Scouts Monument

This bronze monument of the Silesian Scouts is in front of the "Silesia" hotel. It is a tribute to all the scouts who fought and died during World War II in defence of Katowice.

And one more...

...but this is the last one, I promise. I'll find other objects to picture. The caption says: "The consumer's life ain't easy!" (The mouse is next to the biggest shopping centre in Katowice)

Found the mouse!

The circus was here last month only for two or three days, but there are photos...
