The Polish Baltic Frédéric Chopin Philharmonic – New York Times recommendation
The Polish Baltic Frédéric Chopin Philharmonic in Gdańsk was recommended by New York Times in “36 hours: 125 weekends in Europe” as one of 125 places in Europe that are worth seeing. Another publication, Taschen (644 pages!) emerged based on articles published by New York Times and describes the most stylish and carefully selected routes. The Gdańsk-based Philharmonic appears next to Seville and Florence monuments or Biarritz attractions.
"36 hours: 125 weekends in Europe" is also a presentation of European capitals, delicious cuisine, art and architecture. The information is accompanied by detailed maps of recommended cities and almost 800 illustrations, mostly from "New York Times" archives.
New York Times choice is an honour, but also a proof thatthe Polish Baltic Frédéric Chopin Philharmonic is the largest music institution in northern Poland, visited by classical music lovers from the region, country and beyond. Not very many visitors still have in mind that years ago this was home to a power and heat station. Music and Congress Centre in the Ołowianka Isle has made it an attractive location also for symposia, congresses or international industry conferences. VBW Engineering had the honour to participate in the birth of this beautiful building on the Motława river. The air handling units delivered were suspended and sectional units size 1, 2, 3, 4 and 7.Needless to say how stringent were the requirements our products had to meet, to offer air comfort for the halls. The master there is music, so everything must be top class.
Out of journalistic obligation, it should be added that in January 2011, "New York Times" mentioned Gdańsk as one of 40 cities in the world that were worth seeing. Besides the Polish Baltic Frédéric Chopin Philharmonic, the Gdańsk-Sopot Ergo-Arena was also given attention, where VBW Engineering cares for good climate with its 61 units.
