History - Olsztyn, Poland



After 123 years of occupation, on 11 November 1918 Poland regained its independance. Treaty of Versailles set the west border of the country. However, not all lands and cities were a part of the reborn Poland. Warmia and Mazury regions are the best example of it, the fate of their cities decided in the East Prussia plebiscite. Unfortnately in 1920 the citizens voted to stay a part of the East Prussia.
In 1945 the Potsdam Conference made most of East Prussia along with the city of Olsztyn a part of Poland. It caused changes in the development of the city. Buildings were destroyed demolished and rebuild throughout an age.
On the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining independence we would like you to experience the cities past through photographs.
The electronic puzzle allow a glimse into the past and we hope they will not only be good fun but also a history lesson. An entouragement for a trip to the oldest part of town.
