Karol Nienartowicz is a  photographer from Poland is better know for his beautiful mountain photos. Some of them we have posted Here. Quite recently he decided to re-take some of the old photographs of Gdańsk, Poland taken after World War II. Gdańsk is the fourth-largest metropolitan area in Poland established in 10th century. It is a symbolic city of the beginning of the World War II, when Nazi Germany invaded Poland in 1939, and the collapse of communism which had started there in the 1980s.

During World War II, 90% of the historic old town was destroyed as a result of air strikes and artillery fire during the fighting. In order to rebuild Gdańsk to its former glory, it was necessary to do a titanic work. Thanks to the enormous effort of several generations of Polish people, the city was rebuilt in the old form. Take a look at these re-taken photos of Gdańsk by Karol Nienartowicz.
