Building fire brigade on Ksiezy Mlyn
Łódź is a truly fascinating, magical city. One of the most intriguing places in Poland, Księży Młyn (Priest's Mill) underwent a massive overhaul and is now open to the public. Księży Młyn was first mentioned in 1484 in reference to a mill built on the Jasien River in 1387. The original complex was burnt to the ground on May 9, 1822 . In 1854 the 28-year-old Belgian-German Karol Scheibler arrived in Łódź. Scheibler opened a modern factory and was soon leaving the competition behind. Here Scheibler built not only mills, but an entire gasworks to light his factories and the neighbouring workers’ houses too - the first private gasworks in the city. In 1875 Scheibler added several two-story houses for his workers and opened a school for their children. At the height of its existence in 1879, Łódź’s Księży Młyn included all of the above plus more residential buildings and a wall around the entire complex that was locked at night. In 1881 Karol Scheibler died. Księży Młyn continued to grow, with the opening of a hospital (again another first, this being the first factory hospital in Poland), and on June 20, 1884, Łódź’s first voluntary fire brigade unit was founded inside Scheibler’s factory.

Dobrze, że pokazujesz ŁÓdz, bo rzadkoo ona gości na TE, a jak wsidac tez sa interestujace miejsca. Ta wieza remizy strazackiej wyglada troche jak wloska campanila. Super kadr.
Do Bratsławy można pojechać na fajna i tanią wycieczke. Kupilam bilet na Polski Bus za 40 zł a powrót z Wiednia za 20!. Noclegi w hostelu tez niedrogie. A Bratysława jest slicznie odnowiona, warta odwiedzenia.

An elevated view point showing the skyline brightly exposed and pleasant clarity with enough interest around. The bright brown building is an influential colour breaker creating a strong point of focus and enriching the whole scene. Great shot and congrats. tfs

You're capturing well this historical red architecture by a good angle, a good focus and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the building with elegant design and tower. It is also interesting to hear use changes of this building. And, it's good contrst with many high buildings of the backdrop.

The trees are framing well the building. The point of view is showing the détails and the colors of the architecture of the fire station. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.

Frankly, i do not know how missed this one, a beauty.
Taken from a high POV that allow good view across the green (park?) area towards the city skyline, and the main attraction on this photo is the semi-castle shape of the fire brigade building, built with a stunning red colors bricks.
The daylight made the vivid colors dominating.
