17.08.2017 – WELCOME TO BIESZCZADY MOUNTAINS

.

YESTERDAY IN THE LATE EVENING WE ARRIVED AT THE BIESA PALACE IN OLSZANICA FOR THE NIGHT. HOWEVER, IT WAS NOT UNTIL THE MORNING WE WERE ABLE TO APPRECIATE THE PLACE, WHERE WE SPENT THE NIGHT.

THE “PALACYK BIESA” (“PALACE OF THE FIEND”) IN OLSZANICA HAS 7 ha OF LAND AROUND. THIS IS A SMALL PALACE FROM 1905 LOCATED NOT FAR FROM THE MAIN ROAD. BETWEEN THE WAY AND THE MANSION JEST MOAT-POND WITH AN ISLAND. SEVERAL CLOSE BY BUILDINGS – PRESUMABLY OLD COURT BUILDINGS – ARE FUNCTIONING TODAY AS A HOTEL. A HUGE POND AND MOAT SEPARATE THE PALACE AND THE SURROUNDING IT PARK FROM THE REST OF THE PROPERTY. FARTHER MEADOWS ARE STRETCHING OUT AND, AMONG THEM SHEPHERD’S HUT WHETHER EVEN TWO, SERVING AMONG OTHERS AS THE PLACE FOR SLEEPING IN THE BAGS FOR UP TWO 20 PEOPLE EACH.

THERE IS ALSO A SWIMMING POOL, GARDEN CHESS, A TENNIS COURT AND SOME PLAYGROUNDS.
THE PROPERTY ORGANIZES WEDDINGS AND OTHER EVENTS OF THIS KIND. I UNDERSTAND THAT THE HOTEL IS PUBLIC, ALTHOUGH IT ALLEGEDLY HAS SOME CONNECTIONS WITH THE DEFENCE MINISTRY.

PRICE FOR A DOUBLE ROOM WITH BREAKFAST IN THE “SAN” RESORT (FORMER COURT BUILDINGS) – 160 PLN. THEY SAY THEY ALWAYS HAVE AT LEAST 100 GUESTS. THE BREAKFAST WAS FANTASTIC. IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO FIND A BETTER ONE …

WE ARE NOW GOING TO MY AUNT. URSA MAIOR BREWERY SET UP IN FRONT OF HER BUILDINGS.

URSA MAIOR BREWERY TEMPTS ALL PASSERS-BY. EVEN IN THE MORNING, SEVERAL PEOPLE ARE ALREADY SITTING UNDER THE UMBRELLAS IN THIS WILDERNESS. THE CAR PARK IS EMPTY. IT’S JUST A SEMBLANCES. APPARENTLY WHEN IT RAINS, THE TRAFFIC HERE IS SUCH BIG THAT THE BOSSES HAVE TO DELEGATE SOMEONE TO DRIVE THE PARKING TRAFFIC.
THE BREWERY, OF COURSE, SERVES SOME DISHES. ONE CAN EATS AND DRINKS INSIDE, LOOKING AT A BREWING HOUSE THROUGH A HUGE GLASS WALL, OR ON THE WORKS OF VARIOUS ARTISTS HANGING ON THE WALLS. DRINKING AND EATING OUTSIDE IS POSSIBLE, TOO.

THERE IS A SHOP ON THE SIDE OF THE BUILDING. NOT ONLY WITH  BEER. YOU WILL FIND HERE A WHOLE LOT OF MORE OR LESS INTERESTING THINGS RELATED TO THIS YOUNG LABEL. THE CHOICE OF BOUTIQUE BEERS IS CONSIDERABLE. THE PRICES ARE HIGH. THE CHEAPEST 0.5 l BOTTLE IS AN EXPENSE OF 10 PLN. AN INTERESTING GLASS FOR DRINKING BEER COSTS PLN 32; FRIDGE MAGNETS FROM 5 TO 20 PLN. ONE CAN BUY ALL THIS ON THE NET. THE OWNERS DID A GOOD JOB. A BREWERY RUNS VERY WELL AND DEFINITELY WORTH A VISIT. WE RECOMMEND ?.
