14÷16.09.2018 – PRZESIEKA. A CLASH WITH THE KARKONOSZE NATURE

.

WE WENT ON A LONG-POSTPONED VISIT TO FRIENDS FROM LOWER SILESIA. WE SPENT A FEW DAYS WITH THEM, GETTING TO KNOW ONE OF THE LESSER-KNOWN CORNERS OF OUR COUNTRY – PRZESIEKA – A VILLAGE LOCATED IN THE CZERWIENIA VALLEY, MYI AND PODGORNA VALLEY.

IN THIS LOST PLACE IN THE KARYOKINESIS MOUNTAINS, CALLED AFTER THE SECOND WW FOR A VERY SHORT TIME MATEJKOWICE (HERE A PART OF PAINTINGS OF FAMOUS POLISH ARTIST JAN MATEJKO ROBBED BY NAZIS WAS FOUND) I WAS ONES BEFORE. PROBABLY AROUND 1968 …

BELOW ARE SOME TIPS FOR NEARBY ATTRACTIONS:

PODGORNA WATERFALL – THE ABSOLUTE # 1 OF LOCAL CURIOSITIES. BEAUTIFUL PLACE. JUST BEFORE THE WATERFALL, THE WATER ACCUMULATES IN A LARGE RESERVOIR. THEN, GAINING MOMENTUM, NOT TOO WIDE AT THIS TIME OF THE YEAR STREAM IS FALLING DOWN ABOUT 10 m, TO ANOTHER, THIS TIME TO THE MUCH LARGER WATER TANK. DESPITE THE FACT THAT WE ARE NOT UNDER THE NIAGARA, THE VIEW ENHANCED BY THE SOUND EFFECT IS BREATHTAKING IN TITS.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. THE SMALLER WALRUSES WILL FIND HERE A SPACE FOR BATHING. 🙂

PS: RIGHT NEXT TO, THOSE WHO LIKE CLIMBING, CAN ROMPING ON NEARLY VERTICAL SURFACES.

A BIT FARTHER ONE WILL ENCOUNTER THE CASCADES OF MYIA, THE PODGORNA TRIBUTARY. COOL, ALTHOUGH THE WATER FALLS HERE LESS THAN AT THE ABOVE-MENTIONED WATERFALLS, ARE LOOKING VERY PICTURESQUE.

WALLOON STONE – A FEW DIFFERENT SIZES OF GRANITE ROCKS HIGH OVER THE 2 m. AN OBJECT ALREADY APPEARING IN DESCRIPTIONS IN THE XV CENTURY IN THE WALLOON’ BOOKS AS AN IMPORTANT LANDMARK.

THE JAPANESE GARDEN SIRUWIA DEFINITELY ATTRACTS TOURISTS. IT WAS VISIBLE EVEN NOW, AFTER THE SEASON.

THE AREA OF 1.5 ha OCCUPIED BY IT LOOKS IMPRESSIVE. CHILDREN WILL BE DELIGHTED. PARENTS A LITTLE LESS, BECAUSE THE ENTRANCE, HOWEVER, COSTS A LOT. DISCOUNTS FOR RETIRED AND STUDENT ARE SYMBOLIC.

ASSUMING THAT THESE TYPES OF TRIPS LAST SEVERAL HOURS, YOU NEED TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE ASSOCIATED ADDITIONAL COSTS. SOME DRINKS, SNACKS, ETC. IN THE GARDEN KIOSK, THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT DRINKS OF JAPANESE ORIGIN AT SLIGHTLY PROHIBITIVE PRICES. Eg. 250 mL OF COCA-COLA COSTS PLN 10, OR PLN 40 PER LITRE.

IF YOU ASSUME THAT WE WILL COME HERE WITH CHILDREN FOR THE WHOLE DAY, THEN TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE RELATED TRIP COSTS, EVEN 500+ MAY NOT BE ENOUGH …

IT’S TIME FOR DINNER

HOTEL PALACE STANISZOW (HOTEL SCHLOSS STONSDORF)

BEAUTIFUL PALACE IN WONDERFUL SURROUNDINGS. LOCATED IN ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PARKS IN THE LOWER SILESIA REGION. CLOSE BY IS THE KARKONOSZE NATIONAL PARK, ALL THE TIME PRESERVING THE LOCAL FLORA AND FAUNA. GUESTS CAN SPEND THEIR TIME HERE HIKING, BIKING, SKIING, GOLFING etc.

APART FROM THE PALACE, ONE CAN SEE THE FORMER COURT BUILDINGS ADAPTED FOR TOURIST AND RECREATIONAL FACILITIES AND A LARGE PALACE PARK.

DESIGNED BY JOSEPH LENNE PARK IN STANISZÓW WAS ONE OF THE FIRST PARK DESIGNED IN ENGLISH STYLE IN LOWER SILESIA. THANKS TO NUMEROUS GROUPS OF ROCKS, RICHNESS AND DIVERSITY OF TREES AND WONDERFUL VIEWS THE PARK IS AN EXAMPLE OF A PERFECT AND HARMONIC FUSION OF NATURAL LANDSCAPE CONDITIONS WITH A HUMAN FANTASY.

A LARGE PART OF THE LOWER LEVEL OF THE PALACE IS OCCUPYING BY A RESTAURANT. A FEW INTERESTINGLY DECORATED INTERIORS CREATE SEPARATE DINING ROOMS, ALLOWING YOU TO DINE IN A UNIQUE SETTING. WHAT’S MORE, DURING THE SUMMER YOU CAN ALSO ENJOY FOOD OR A GLASS OF WINE IN THE OPEN AIR. EATING IN THE FRESH AIR ENRICHES THE SOUND OF GREENERY AND WATER COMING FROM THE ENGLISH STYLE PALACE PARK.

THE RESTAURANT LOOKS OK, ALTHOUGH IT WOULD DEFINITELY BE NICE TO REFRESH IT. ESPECIALLY FLOORS AT THIS LEVEL OF THE BUILDING REQUIRE SOME ATTENTION.

UNFORTUNATELY, DURING OUR VISIT, IT WAS A BIT WORSE WITH FOOD AND SERVICE. WE ORDERED A TOTAL OF OVER TEN DISHES IN TOTAL. WE HAD NO OBJECTIONS TO THE VAST MAJORITY. BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED, EYE-CATCHING DISHES TASTED GOOD. UNLUCKILY, TWO OF THE SERVED FOOD HAVE HAD PROBLEMS. ONE – MONKFISH WITH TRUFFLE SAUCE SERVED WITHOUT THE TITLE TRUFFLES. DUE TO A MISTAKE IN THE KITCHEN, TWO MAIN COMPONENTS CREATING THE TASTE OF THE WHOLE DISH WENT MISSING. THE SECOND FAKE DISH WAS GRILLED VEGETABLES. THE EGGPLANT THEY SERVED WAS HALF RAW.

THE WORST, HOWEVER, WAS THE LACK OF THE WAITER PROFESSIONALISM, WHO UNNECESSARILY WAS TRYING TO PROTECT THE KITCHEN. HE DID NOT SUCCEED. TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, HE TRIED TO DOWNPLAY THE ERRORS OF THE KITCHEN’S STAFF, SUGGESTING OUR CUISINE MASTER CHEF IGNORANCE… WHAT A PITY.

IN TOTAL, THE FOOD WE RATED QUITE WELL, BUT THE PRICE-QUALITY RATIO IS NOT IMPRESSIVE. THE SMALL DISCOUNT WE GOT DUE TO THE KITCHEN MISTAKES AND WAITER IGNORANCE WAS DEFINITELY THE NICE GESTURE, HOWEVER … WE WILL NOT COME BACK HERE …
