We didn’t start or even made another trip – you know it’s Corona times. It’s a pity.
However, today I like to create a post about doors, entrances, gateways … When cruising Warsaw, Krakow & Wroclaw I took photos – as usual, more photos than you may imagine. I always like to capture details especially when walking in Old Town quarters. Sometimes I’m focused on windows, on balconies, on townhouses … or on doors, entrances and gateways.
So this post will show some of the most finest, the most interesting or even simply ordinary doors I encountered during our strolls.
For the start there is a detail, a lion’s head as a door knocker (see above). I’m always rather intrigued by these old-fashioned details which are missing in modern buildings. (Although I doubt that the door knocker is in active use any longer …)
Same is valid, I think, for the door knockers of the impressive entrance below.
Sometimes there seem to be style mixes – like here where also renovation seems due.
Somehow I think … it’s a mismatch!
Then again the fine golden decor is obviously meticulously cultivated on the next door.
This is really … breathtaking: 2 sturdy heroes bearing the porch roof.
Here is an unsophisticated door …
… and below a grant gateway!
Also a fine masterpiece – obviously for a renovated building.
… and another one with lion heads!
… and here’s an entrance with a splendid balcony (and also lion heads as door knockers).
Some coat of arms above the door …
Same here with small bearers …
(Just try to ignore the car parking in front of the house!)
The gateway to law!
A modern building and a modern door with an obviously historic framing.
Pegasus above the entrance …
This was once the entrance to the stock exchange.
Modern times, modern vehicles, modern transport … you’ll find them all over the cities now.
(… and they can be fast!)
Carefully restored – a door into a museum (as far as I remember!).
This is university’s splendor …
… and finally: another lion’s head!
