Riviera Toruń

There’s a place in Toruń that always stuns me whenever I go by it.

It’s a block of flats in Bartkiewiczowny Street, in the Koniuchy district (sort of). It has an official address – one consisting of the street name and some numbers – but I call it differently. I call it Riviera. In my eyes, the place is the exact embodiment of the name Riviera. Forget the Riviera Student Halls in Warsaw. This is the real Riviera.

The building has waves and blues and turquoises and also the sandy yellow of the beach. It’s the place where the river meets the sea, the mouth of the Vistula or perhaps some other large river, and although there isn’t the tiniest body of water in its proximity, it brings the water to you.

What do you think of Riviera Toruń?

Graduated from the University of Edinburgh with a First in geography, and from the University of Brighton with a Master's in history of design and material culture. Probably drinking iced coffee and thinking about buildings.
