You are now squarely in Bydgoszcz’s 'New Town', an area built up almost entirely during a 50-year period between 1865 and 1915 around the then-new train station. Thanks to this quick development, the district is fairly uniform architecturally, with Fin De Siècle Eclecticism, Baroque Revival, and Art Nouveau being the styles du jour. Meanwhile, similar construction was taking place in Prussia’s capital, leading Bydgoszcz to earn the nickname - can you guess it? - 'Little Berlin.' Bydgoszcz, however, has a claim on its own particular brand of Art Nouveau - known locally as 'Bydgoska Secesja' - and some of its best examples can be found along this picturesque 250m long street, which is packed with ornate, pastel-coloured townhouses.
