Europe RR - Special Group UNESCO

Today I received my first Round Robin card from the Europe Round Robin - Special Group 3 UNESCO! The card comes from Poland and was send by Ksenia . I already have said it but: dziękuję bardzo :) It is nice to receive a card from someone whos blog I read for more than two months now and I'm wondering when my card will be arrived.

The card is my first UNESCO card I received from Poland and shows us the Centennial Hall in Wroclaw. It is built during 1911 - 1933 and an example of the modernism part in the architecture.

The most funniest thing is that I'm interested in Poland since two years because of my speedskating hobby. I'm following the Polish speedskating team and learn some Polish words and now I got the change to learn more about the country by sending and receiving postcards. I like the stamps as well. The stamps in other countries seems always be more beautiful than ours!

"The Centennial Hall, a landmark in the history of reinforced concrete architecture, was erected in 1911-1913 by the architect Max Berg as a multi-purpose recreational building, situated in the Exhibition Grounds. In form it is a symmetrical quatrefoil with a vast circular central space that can seat some 6,000 persons. The 23m-high dome is topped with a lantern in steel and glass. The Centennial Hall is a pioneering work of modern engineering and architecture, which exhibits an important interchange of influences in the early 20th century, becoming a key reference in the later development of reinforced concrete structures."

  1. It's so nice to see the card I've sent you on this blog :) It's so unusual to hear that someone is interested in Poland... But I really feel very pleased :) And if you have any questions about Poland or Polish language - I'll be glad to help you :)

    When it comes to stamps, I find these ones boring, because these are the "standard" ones. But anyway I was lucky on that day, because they gave me the 3 złoty postage in 2 stamps. Usually I get just one, similar to the one with 1 złoty (just with another price and house on the picture) :) I think we all find the "standard" stamps boring, but in fact they're not so bad, as long as you don't know that they're the "standard" ones :)))

  2. I know that Polish people are very surprised when they hear that I'm interested in their country :) I hear it a lot of the speedskaters. If I need some help, I will ask! :)
