With this note I am beginning a series of posts, that will show the most interesting and beautiful – in my opinion- buildings of Wrocław, my home city, with their surroundings as well. On this occasion I will also show you my home city, which is really beautiful. See yourself! 😀
This time I will present the splendid Renoma building and the nearby Puppet Theater (Teatr Lalek) with its gorgeous surroundings – the Old Town Garden. Enjoy the photos 🙂
The Renoma building – visible from the Kościuszko SquareThe Renoma building – visible from the Podwale StreetThe Renoma building was a warehouse, built in year 1929 in accordance with Hermann Dernburg’s design. Between year 2006 and 2009 a renovation of the existing building and its extension were executed, on the basis of the design by the Wrocław Maćków Architecture Design Studio. The character and style of the new part of the Renoma building are inspired by the old one.
