Z is for Zittau

I have known what I would post for Z ever since I started these A to Z challenge responses…unlike some other letters where I hadn’t a clue. Trouble is, I can’t locate more than a few images at present, lost in the archives somewhereo. It is almost two decades since we were there, and the place had barely had any renovations since the communist era.

So anyway, here are a few shots. First up, one of the town’s old fortifications:

an old cobbled street:

An interesting facade of what was the old post office, I think:

  3. Your travels have served you well with this A-Z, Sue. I tried to think if I had been anywhere starting with a ‘Z’, but drew a blank.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  8. that looks like a wonderful place, Sue

  9. No post offices like that around us, Sue. 🙂 The city looks beautiful and I think all the old people keep in shape just from doing all that walking!
