Elbląg – Photos at Night

I’m not intending to win any prizes with these photos, a couple of which aren’t quite level, but an initial indication of the city of Elbląg in the evening. The city is quiet tonight on a January evening and the restaurants all look nearly empty. It’s reasonably warm and although there’s more snow on the ground than in Gdansk, most has melted. I haven’t seen much lit up beyond what’s in these photos, which is the old market square area.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I can’t quite capture in my mind the medieval charm of this once Hanseatic city, so much has been destroyed over the centuries, not least during the Second World War. There are some photos of the city as it was before the war at https://fotopolska.eu/zdjecia/m37662,Elblag.html?zakres=3&zdjeciaOd=1900&zdjeciaDo=1917.
