It was a memorable trip last summer 2014 in Poland. You know why?  It is where I celebrated my birthday. One of the places I visited was Opole. It is a city in southern Poland on the Oder River (Odra).  The city is also known as the capital of the historical region Upper Silesia.

I had the chance to go around the city with other   German tourists. We actually had a tour guide that time.  After the tour, we were given the time  to explore  the place on our own.  For now, let me just share this photo of a beautiful fountain in Opole since I am slowly going to workland.

The fountain on the Daszynski’s square in Opole, Poland, sculpted by Edmund Gomansky.

The fountain is located on  a large green square surrounded by dense residential buildings. It is quite   recreational visiting here and simply enjoy the area. For decades, even after the war, this  was a peaceful place. These squares, small rest area in a dense urban area, formed a strong urbanization during the nineteenth century.  This fountain is the work of sculptor Edmund Gomansky. Sculpture shows the fertility goddess Ceres (Greek Demeter), surrounded by daughters Prosperin (gr.Persephone), a fisherman and Skalnik.
