PLACES WE VISITED IN POLAND

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. (more…)


22 ÷ 26.08.2018 – BARYCZ VALLEY ATTRACTIONS

.

THE HOTEL AND RESTAURANT IN “W STARYM MŁYNIE” (IN THE OLD MILL). I WILL START WITH THIS – BECAUSE THE MOST IMPORTANT THING ABOUT TRAVEL IS GOOD ACCOMMODATION AND TASTY FOOD. LOCATED ABOUT 5 km FROM MILICZ, THE “IN THE OLD MILL” INN INCLUDES 9 ROOMS WITH BATHROOMS AND A SMALL RESTAURANT. (more…)


20-21.07.2018 – IN THE “SIEGED” MALBORK

.

THE TRIP TO MALBORK HAS BEEN PLANNED FOR A LONG TIME. THIS TIME IT’S A FAMILY-FRIENDLY TRIP. FEW NO SPRING CHICKENS AND THE KIDS. THE IDEA IS TO USE THE ANNUAL HISTORICAL STAGING ORGANIZED THERE, TO INSTILL THE DESIRE FOR LEARNING THE NOT-DISTORTED HISTORY OF POLISH SOIL IN THE YOUNGER GENERATION. (more…)


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. (more…)


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. (more…)


16.08.2017 – THE CARPATHIAN TROY

.

WE MADE PLANS FOR THIS TRIP FOR MONTHS. THE INITIATOR WAS MY MOM, WHO A FEW YEARS AGO LEARNED ABOUT THE WONDERFUL DISCOVERY OF POLISH ARCHAEOLOGISTS IN THE SWIETOKRZYSKIE VOIVODESHIP. FOR A LONG TIME, WE WERE UNABLE TO COORDINATE THE DATE OF THE EXPEDITION TO SUIT ALL INTERESTED PARTIES. EITHER SOMEONE COULD NOT GO, ANOTHER TIME THE CAR REBELLED. THE BIGGEST PROBLEM WAS THE ATTEMPT TO COMBINE A TRIP TO TRZCINICA – CARPATHIAN TROY WITH THE VISIT TO A DISTANT “FAMILY” IN THE BIESZCZADY MOUNTAINS. SUCH A VISIT COULD ADD BLUSHES FOR OUR OUTING, AROUSING MEMORIES. IT ISN’T HOWEVER EASILY TO COORDINATE THE TRIP TO THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL EXCAVATIONS WITH THE CARE OF THE CAT, EVERYDAY DUTIES, AND THE VISIT TO THE PLACE THAT ONE SAW LAST IN 1983. ESPECIALLY, IF WE HAVE AMONGST SIGHTSEERS TWO AGEING LADIES. (more…)
