Polish style



My May European travels took me to Poland, mostly in Lodz for the Photography Festival -http://www.fotofestiwal.com/2008/ and with a few days in Krakow with time to take in their month of photography - http://www.photomonth.com.
Although today very much a part of greater Europe there seems to be evident a particular sense of Polish style, a particular visual look in their design. A sort of modernist thing it seemed to me. Here are two photographs that have that look.

You're right. There's something specific about Polish style. It's like a mixture of everything- modern buildings next to old tenement-houses and super ugly post-communist blocks of flats. You should visit Warsaw next time you go there. Praha- one of its districts- is a great yet not too safe place to take photographs.
