Kitsch architecture and Las Vegas in Poland? | ONE PHOTO SUNDAY


Architecture and kitschy advertisements on the streets

Zakopane, a small city in the mountains,  is a popular tourist target in Poland. Its 19th century architecture is precious. Unfortunately lately the main street is becoming to look like Las Vegas. Colorful and ugly advertisments are flooding Zakopane and the city authorities do nothing. It's so sad, observing a beautiful city changing into a parody of a city.

  1. Kicz może czasem bawić, ale tylko czasem i owa zabawa to śmiech pełen rezygnacji... Uczmy Polaków, jak kiczu unikać. Ideałem byłoby, gdyby był dozwolony tylko w domowym zaciszu, żeby inni go nie widzieli :]
