On Monday 25th of July we had about 200 miles to go between Krakov and Warsaw – a small introduction to the real vacation and one of our numerous tours in Poland at the same time. That day it was decided to slightly prolong the trip to reach new objects on our map.
Ksionge Wielky castle is to be the first on our way. Built in 1595 by bishop Piotr Myshkowsky now the castle performs as a residence of the Agriculture College. It is located on the hill above the town and in… (read more)

“You are praising somebody’s else, but don’t know yours” — someone used to say. Sometimes it comes time to change it. In the summer a friend of mine hit on an idea to go to the seaside.

We adjusted car navigation the way it doen’t lead us through highways, so we could look at Poland but not roads. We do satisfied with this choice excluding couple of forest side roads-surprises.

Sometimes we “meet” small castles, monument or just interesting neighborhood.

It’s an interesting place, so I regret we didn’t pay the guide but this decision was democratic.
