The day was sunny and it was a pleasure to climb up, even though there were many people who were going with us. Our tour started at 1000m of altitude and ended at 2000m to Kasprowy Wierch. In two third of the way, we reached Hala Gasienicowa – a meadow in between mountains. As soon as I saw the composition of the wooden cabin with high mountain scenery I knew it was worth to carry ten kilos of camera backpack with me.
There are some countries to which we have special connection – friends, family, great experiences, mentality of people who live there. Such country for us is Poland.
Recent photos from Poland
The Rynek, polish for market square, is as in most Silesian towns the centre of Świdnica. Remarkable was the variety of blooming flowers. I wanted to capture the blossom together with the architecture and the fountain serves well as a balancing weight in the middle of the hedge and the small green house.
Gdańsk is such a magnificent town and with all the water around one can surely get the idea to go fishing in Gdańsk. I was very lucky with the weather. The clouds caused a great sunset but no ten minutes later it started pouring. But in other ways as well, it is impossible to capture this scene a second time.
The Tatra Mountains are the biggest mountains in Poland with a height up to 2,499m. Zakopane is a small town at the foot of the mountains that invite tourists from all over the world. What’s especially nice about Zakopane is its location in the valley. Because of that you can climb a “hill” (Me as a Berliner, I call it a mountain) and have a stunning view on this highest part of the Carpathians.
The Wieliczka Salt Mine must make it on your list when you have a rainy day in Cracow. The mine is simply mind-blowing. There are 300km full of statues, arts and chapels on 9 levels that were built over the last 700 years. It is the oldest salt mine of its kind in Europe and since 1978 legitimately among the first UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
