30.10.2017 – MIEDZYGORZE

DO YOU KNOW MIEDZYGORZE? NO? REGRET… THIS BEAUTIFUL SETTLEMENT LOST AMONGST SUDETEN FOREST CORNERS IS PARALYSING WITH ONE’S CHARM. MOSTLY UNTOUCHED BY THE ARCHITECTS OF THE POLISH CROOKED COMMUNISM ERA, IT MOVED US TO THE BEGINNING OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY. GREAT PLACE FOR A FEW DAYS GETAWAY.

MIEDZYGORZE HAS A VERY WELL-DEVELOPED TOURIST AND ACCOMMODATION BASE. THE POSSIBILITIES OF ACTIVE SPENDING TIME ARE MANY AND VARIED. BEGINNING FROM HIKING (AND CYCLING) TOURS ALONG NEARBY ROUTES, AND FINISHING ON THE MORE REFINED SPORTS AND LEISURE ACTIVITIES: HORSEBACK RIDING, SKIING, SLEDGING, SNOWBOARDING ETC. ON THE ENGLISH, GERMAN AND POLISH WEBSITE YOU WILL FIND MORE.

THEY HAVE HERE A LOT OF BETTER AND WORSE NIGHT SHELTERS. I DID NOT HAVE TIME TO ACQUAINT ONESELF WITH THEIR OFFER, BUT TWO I GOT TO KNOW QUITE WELL. ONE IS THE GUESTHOUSE “SARENKA”, THE OTHER IS “VILLA PEPINA”. BOTH ARE STYLISH BUILDINGS FROM THE END OF THE 19th CENTURY.

“SARENKA” – MORE CENTRALLY LOCATED, OFFERS ACCOMMODATION IN VERY SIMPLY EQUIPPED, EN SUITE ROOMS. HERE A MODERNIZATION WOULD BE USEFUL. BEDS OK. CLEAN. VERY POOR TV SIGNAL PRACTICALLY DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO WATCH PROGRAMS. WE DID NOT TRY MEALS FROM THE HOTEL’S RESTAURANT. UNLESS “A MEAL” WE WILL CALL A STRONG SMELL OF COOKING, SPREADING OVER A THREE-STOREY BUILDING. IT WAS THE BIGGEST FAULT OF THIS PLACE. IN OUR OPINION, THE PRICE IS A BIT TOO HIGH.

“VILLA PEPINA” – RECENTLY RESTORED BEAUTIFUL VILLA FULL OF CHARACTER. BIG ROOMS, SOME HAVE A BALCONY. COMFORTABLE BEDS. CLEAN. GOT BILLIARD ROOM, THE LIBRARY. GREAT, VERY SUBSTANTIAL BREAKFAST @ 20 PLN. GOOD SERVICE. HIGH PRICES, BUT ALSO UNUSUAL CONDITIONS.

WE WERE BIG, OVER 30 PEOPLE GROUP IN LOW SEASON. WE ATE THE ORDERED EARLIER DINNER IN “ALPINE MANOR HOUSE”. TO CHOOSE FROM WE HAD: GRILLED SMOKED EWE’S MILK CHEESE MADE IN THE TATRA MOUNTAINS ON LETTUCE SALAD, BEEF CARPACCIO, PORK TENDERLOIN, PIKEPERCH ON LETTUCE SALAD AND CHICKEN SOUP OR PUMPKIN CREAM. FOR DESSERT APPLE PIE. TO DRINK TWO TYPES OF CZECH BEER, ITALIAN RED VINE AND SOFT DRINKS.

ALL THE DISHES WERE REALLY GOOD. PERSONALLY I ATE THE FRIED PIKEPERCH ON LETTUCE SALAD, SIPPING IT WITH BEER. HOWEVER, THE CARPACCIO LOOKED SO HELLO, THAT I COULD HARDLY RESIST. THEY ALSO HAVE GOOD WINES AND GOOD ESPRESSO FROM THE COFFEE MACHINE. VALUE FOR MONEY VERY GOOD. YOU CAN PAY BY CREDIT CARD. WE RECOMMEND
