You didn't like Kazimierz, so l let's come back to Chojnice. I have already shown the City Hall, here the view of the whole Old Market Square.
Chojnice is a town in northern Poland with 39 670 inhabitants (2004), near famous Tuchola Forest, Lake Charzykowskie and many other water reservoirs.
Chojnice was founded around 1205(although the date is considered to be estimate) in Gdańsk Pomerania (Pomeralia), a duchy ruled at the time by the Samborides, who had originally been appointed governors of the province by Bolesław III Wrymouth of Poland. Gdańsk Pomerania had been part of Poland since the 10th century, with few episodes of autonomy, yet under Swietopelk II, who came into power in 1217, it gained independence in 1227. In 1309 the Teutonic Knights took over the town, and Chojnice became part of the State of the Teutonic Order. Under Winrich von Kniprode the defense capabilities and inner structures of the town were improved considerably.During the Polish–Lithuanian–Teutonic War, in 1410, the town was briefly occupied by Polish troops. On 18 September 1454 the Polish army of King Kazimierz Jagiellończyk lost the Battle of Chojnice. Short before the end of the Thirteen Years' War the troops of the Teutonic Order, led by Kaspar von Nostiz, surrendered the town in 1466 to the Polish army, after a three-month siege.After the 2nd Treaty of Thorn Chojnice became part of Poland in 1466.

A very pretty square captured under an agreeable ambient light. There is much to see and the summery atmosphere is very evident. A well composed image with very good colours and sharpness.

Well, maybe it was the rain...the weather can build a solid opinion about a place you know..Anyway, great scene from this colored old square, very enjoyable atmosphere.

Quelle belle petite place.Les couleurs sont superbes et joliment saturées. Les maisons aux belles formes qui ceinturent la place jouissent d'une très belle lumière. J'aime l'animation sur la place.

Pleasant picture, also very colourful with all these wonderful façades on this square.
You play excellent with light, colour and shadows.

Poland has very nice cities.
Excellent composition, nice captured.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Looked up this town in Google-map, and as thought the style is just like we see in Gdansk, which is very same area - so the same archi.-design prevailed.
Fabulous colors mingle in fine harmmony, a well taken shot.

I certainly like this photo better than the last one (I actually wasn't very keen on your note to that one). This reminds me of the equally colourful and nice squares I saw in several Polish cities. Lots of fine details and the sunshine makes it even more attractive.

These building are beautiful! As a fan of architecture, I could note ask for a more beautiful sight that this perfect square captureed under such splendid light. I particularl, the red building on the left hand side with its dark spires and pinnacles appeals to me a lot. The sky behind is like something from a painting.
swapankumarroy (2839) 2014-09-02 11:10
An excellent position where you shoot the square surrounded by beautiful colored buildings and the peoples spent their leisure time, very good subject and well composition. Color is superb.
warm regards and thanks,
PaulVDV (22657) 2014-09-02 11:16
This doesn't seem like a place for pessimistic thoughts. Such a colourful square really cheers me up.
Good POV for a great overview of this place with its eye-catching buildings.
Attractive saturation. The sky makes a beautiful backdrop too.
Best regards, Paul

this is an extraordinary urban setting, the architecture and colours of the buildings are irresistible. Your picture has inviting depth and very attractive details, makes the viewer wish to wander into the scenery. You used the light wonderfully, the sunlit facades have beautiful, rich colours and stand out superbly as they are contrasted by the cloudy sky and the shady foreground. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

che bella questa piazza, ci si affacciano delle belle e colorate facciate, belle anche certe architetture che si intravedono, come la torre e la chiesa.

What a beautiful photo of this charming market square. The picturesque houses look so nice and their colours are fantastic of course. Thanks for sharing!

Une belle place avec des façades très variées, colorées et superbement éclairées.

widok jak z fajnej pocztowki. Jak tu widac Chojnice maja piekny ryneczek. Wyszlas z grzybowego lasu w Borach no i troche miejskiego klimatu mamy. Warto tam zajrzec.
kasianowak (6813) 2014-09-03 10:06
Pieknie, kolorowo i slonecznie - ciepla atmosfera lata.
Ale komu nie podobal sie deszczowy Kazimierz? :-(
macjake (57074) 2014-09-03 11:17
haha, i recognize the building in this scene from your other post.
looks like quite the colors square, all colors of the rainbow :)
really like the light fixtures too.
another reason to visit Europe, we don't really have such squares like this here in Canada.
nice shot indeed.
Make sure you say hello to Serghei and Jason for me!

wunderschöne Postkarte, perfekt!
Wünsch dir einen schönen Herbst

Attractive panorama of the Chojnice Square, with varying classical architecture and colors. I would guess most of the buildings are later than your fine historical narrative 1205 to 1466?
Would enjoy relaxing in the Square sipping an ice tea or hot coffee.
Thanks for sharing,

Ciao Malgorzata, great view of fantastic square with beautiful facades, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
daddo (24404) 2014-09-05 22:26
Hi Malgo. I just saw Ryszard's photo of Poznan and admired the houses as I do here as well, although in your photo of Chojnice the architectural styles are wonderful, varied and elegant. Lovely colours and a sense of history.Looking at the history, it looks like you have had problems with your Teutonic neighbours for hell of a long time. Marching into other people's land will never stop. Pozdrav. Klaudio.
npecanhuk (66256) 2014-09-06 10:01
Such a beautiful place!
Such a lovely, charming and attractive picture!
Sharpness, exposure, (wonderful) saturated colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,
Enjoy your week-end,

kiedy jechalem z zachodu Polski na wschod myslalem o Tobie poniewaz tego samego dnia wyruszylas w o wiele dluzsza podroz. Jak to juz pisalem kiedys: cudze chwalisz ale swoje znasz. To miejsce jest przesliczne! Naprawde Polska jest tak pelna pieknych miejsc i tak wiele z nich nie widzialem -ba nawet o nich nie slyszalem. Z przyjemnoscia dowiaduje sie o nich z TE :)
Urocze miasteczko z mnostwem architektonicznych perelek. Pokazalas je przy przyjemnym swietle i w takich cukierkowych barwach!
PS Juz od jakiegos czasu marzy mi sie jechac do Rosji chocby tylko po to by zatytulowac zdjecie tak jak tytul drugiego z odcinkow Bonda: From Russia with love...
