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."
