Concrete boxes

The view on the north-eastern part of Nowy Sacz from Roszkowice hill. The first row of high-rise blocks, it is so called 'Barskie II' housing estate. We show these buildings first time at this blog. The second row of high-rise blocks is 'Barskie' housing estate - a part of the town which we've already presented several times. In the photo there is also easily noticable church of Our Lady Immaculate. The building of the temple is dominating over this fragment of Nowy Sacz. From this perspective, it is incredible that in such concrete boxes live thousands of people.

I remember seeing Commieblocks like those on the way to Prague from the airport. They are not my favorite style of building they look fine from this view. :)

Ale wiecie co? Z góry te bloki wyglądają całkiem, całkiem -- jak blanki jakiegoś muru obronnego Guliwera :)

These concrete boxes are ugly...but they do provide housing for a lot of people...

Ooh, boxes indeed! The snow helps make them a bit more attractive, though.
