  • I do not like large shopping centres, like small local shops, where we know from the sellers. Truth be told I went to the old Brewery, because this way it was closest to the Traffic from the hotel to the old town. And as I walked, it is me that the Interior very positively surprised. However, this original solutions and make an impression! Because this way I twice daily walked closer to everything you look at. It reminded me that somewhere there were supposed to be the work of Mitoraja-I decided to find them, by the way, while still others. Not necessarily all in my taste, but it is, however, nice, when the malls are works of art. Then I had read, that such objectives pursued by realizacjom of Grażyna Kulczyk 50 + 50, or 50% of the art, the rest depending on the function object. Old brewery earned double prizes for the best shopping center in Europe and in the world in 2005 and 2008. A little by chance by reducing your way with "Porch" to the exit I found within the "Blow Up Hall" and I found even more objects of art. So I decided to finally track down them all. Enjoyable were the moments and I encourage everyone to this rather seriously that the Centre-if you've been works of art are available for free for anyone to enjoy them.

  • Stary Browar and one of the largest and most beautiful malls I've been to in Poland and in Europe in General. Stary Browar lacks nothing, everything is there, indeed, is there more that from us! Great Mall!
