BONN BOCHUM WORLD | Facing the soul of the city


Capital of the week: HISTORY

PABUCA Capital of the week is…


by Paleica



One object, three messages: Paleica shows, that the visual role of a historical monument in the urban scenery is important for its awareness and effect. From distance over integration to extreme presence.

Important notice: PABUCA is no contest. PABUCA is a platform for sharing impressions of towns and an incentive to look for it. So “The capital of the week” is no winner of the theme or necessarily the “best shot”. We wouldn’t presume to declare something like that. But it’s an example, which in our subjective opinion unterlines the idea of PABUCA: To illustrate the soul of the city.

Comment your town, link(s) and eventually some thoughts below this post here.

Something special in Bonn? Thoughts about Bochum? Some words:

Christian, Bonn:

The House of History (Haus der Geschichte) keeps the German history since 1945 alive with many relicts for all generations. Bonn plays a big role here as the Ex-capital of Germany. One of the high frequented museum attractions in Bonn.

Markus, Bochum:

1907 a.d. : Produced for the world fair 1867 in Paris by the steel factory ‚Bochumer Verein’ with a weight of 15.000 kg and a diameter of 3,13m. But this is not the story. – What I wanna say is: Heinz Schwalguleck opened his cheese dairy in 1907.

2000 a.d. : The city hall of Bochum was build in 1912. Eightyeight years later Markus married his Victoria in exact that building.

2011 a.d. : Bochums first tram got into service in 1894 and connected the cities of Bochum and Herne. In March 2011 Kevin Schwalguleck get caught riding the U35 without ticket for the fifth time and was charged with a fee of € 40. And so everything comes full circle about this little excursus in Bochums history. Thank you.
