Holidays

Hello again and sorry for a break, but I were on holidays. I will let you see where :).

Firstly, a map:

mapauby.jpg

This is very popular holiday region for people from Meringburg. The main city of this region is Lubsko, where lives 10.000 people only, but it is a very calm and charming town.  Moreover,  it has good rail connection with Meringburg.

In the centre of region there is a large lake. Bronków is the largest village located near this lake. People go here to the holiday camp or private bungalows. I have my own villa here too.

Ok, as you can read in "e-newspaper " old estate was demolished. Times changed, and now people don't want to live in old prefabricated blocks. New area looks pretty better. Four pictures from construction zone:

Big changes in Meringburg. In the West End (precisely, a small south "cape" between Old Town, Columbus Estate and Middle-City) first real scycraper was built. 2000 people can work there in the one from the 67 companies renting office area there.

Also more and more medium and high wealth people want to live in Meringburg and government had to construct a new estate, called "Copernicus Estate". It is located on the east river bank in Nixton. 8400 citizens got the keys for medium-class apartments and 5000 for high-class. Now 298 000 people live in the city.

I think it is a good idea to give Meringburg large shopping centre, so I started a construction:

merrycity5sty4512484336.png

It will be full of supermarkets, you will be able to find here Tesco, Mediamarkt, Intermarche and few more, but the largest will be Auchan.

Now few information about University mentioned in the newspaper. The main building is located in the Old Town, but the Chemistry and Biology Departments are placed in the Northdocks district. The red building had stood up in 1991 and fast became  famous to the whole Poland.

In Meringburg there are two more characteristic objects. First is a "Mega Mall" Shopping Centre which exist only three years. It stay near "Solidarity Square" (Middle-City)

The second object is a Main Railstation made by concrete and glass. Everyday hundreds of trains arrive to and depart from one of the six platforms.

Welcome to Meringburg

sunsetvalley1248362289.png

Meringburg is located in Sunset Valley, beautiful place somewhere in Poland. The development of city is strictly connected with the history of Poland. First mentions about city are dated to 1543, when local prince built a castle in the valley (it still exist) near the “Merburg” Village. In the ancient archives historians found document which told that in the 1689 civic rights were given to the city called Meringburg. 

During the WW2 the city wasn’t destroyed, so today we can admire lot of old tenements, university and town hall from the 18th century. All of these is located in the Old Town districts.

After the WW2 the city grew fast. According to the socialistic reality, governments started a development of heavy industry. Huge demographic boom caused a big housing problem, so in middle ’70 two housing estates full of concrete high buildings stood up.

After ’89 when Poland became a capitalistic country Meringburg started to change and became large commercial centre. Today over 270 thousands of people live here, 65% work in services and 35% in industry.
