sackcloth and ashes

The Forum in Krakow is an obscenity. Mainly because the city itself is gorgeous. I don't often say thank-you to Soviet generals, but I do appreciate the fact that Koniev was able to take Krakow in '44 without turning it into a car-park.

About 19 years ago I saw a similar monstrosity in Olomouc, the Czech Republic, right in the heart of an otherwise quite pretty town.
