Wrocław street signs

The optima used seems to be the optima nova version… the flare on the “a” gives it away.
Choo, thank you for taking a close look and your suggestion, it’s appreciated. I’m not convinced, though. Attached is a comparison of a few key letters in Linotype’s Optima Medium (left) and Optima nova Medium (right). As far as I can tell, the letterforms on the street signs are closer to the former.
By the way, the ogonek (ę) in Wrocław is different from the one in Warsaw. Neither is a match for the Optimae as currently sold by Linotype, be it nova or vetera.
