These lectures will cover some classical topics in Topology. We will continue studying cohomology and higher homotopy groups which were introduced in Topology I. The main topics of the lecture are: Poincaré duality and its applications, Hurewicz theorem, the theory of fibrations. There will be a lot of focus on examples and computations.
