The May bank holiday saw a trip over to the largest city in Western Poland, and a bit of an alternative to the usual Polish destinations.

The 13th century Main Market Square centres around the Old Town Hall and is the main hive of activity.

This central area has some extremely grand architecture, most notably around the Salt Market Square area.

The Main Market Square also features the prominent St. Elisabeth's Church with its 91.46m tower and 75m observation deck. There is also the St. Mary Magdalene Church to the opposite side of the square. Although the Polish seem to have a thing for churches and there are several more, all equally as grand, dotted around the city.

The outskirts of the city tell a bleaker story, with many brutalist monoliths serving as apartment and office blocks, right up my street!

A bit of research found two such locations built of vast amounts of concrete with only the shells remaining. The first is an unfinished car park which I actually found here:

and stumbled upon by accident on a walk to the Sky Tower, the cities tallest building.

The second location was a fair walk in the opposite direction which I found after a few hours trawling the rest of the internet and was aptly named Elewator Betonu, or the concrete elevator.

Nothing too exciting, but a badge for international Urban Exploring none the less!
