W gościnie w Decuberry-Shaby Chic Studio

To było przemiłe spotkanie w niedzielne popołudnie w pięknej pracowni

Z pomocą i wskazówkami Jagody stworzyłyśmy unikalne mydełka i kamienie ozdobione techniką decoupage.
Całe spotkanie pełne śmiechu i żartow z pyszną herbatą (dla kawoszy - kawą) i smakołykami pozwoliło mi kompletnie zatracić sie w magicznym świecie do którego zaprosiła nas Jagoda.
Dziękuję za zaproszenie i zapraszam na kolejne

A trip to Poland

We'd like to invite you for a little trip to Poland...

Let's start in Szczebrzeszyn! A little town in southeastern Poland in Lublin Voivodeship, about 20 km west of Zamość.

Szczebrzeszyn is famous because of Jan Brzechwa's poem "Chrząszcz" (beetle, chafer), one of the hardest-to-pronounce texts in Polish literature. It starts with:
 W Szczebrzeszynie chrząszcz brzmi w trzcinie
 which in phonetic transcription gives these funny swirls:
/fʂt͡ʂɛbʐɛʂɨɲɛ xʂɔɰ̃ʂt͡ʂ bʐmi ftʂt͡ɕiɲɛ/
Even adult native Polish speakers may struggle to pronounce it. Do have a go at it! :-)

Now time to go to Lublin. Marzanna would be able to show you quite a few hidden treasures of this city, like the enchanting Trinitarian Tower!

Located on the eastern bank of the Vistula, at the edge of historical Lublin Upland, Kazimierz Dolny is considered one of the most beautifully situated little towns in Poland. It is one of the art centres of Poland. Galleries can be found in almost every street, offering for sale sculptures, stained-glass, folk art, and fine art...
On 21st of March Kazimierz's Three Crosses Mountain is occupied by school kids who skip school to celebrate the 1st day of Spring.

Podlasie is a historical region in northeastern part of Poland.

Białystok, the largest city in the Podlaskie Voivodeship, is the capital of the international language Esperanto. The creator of Esperanto was a Polish ophthalmologist, who lived in Bialystok - Ludwik Zamenhof.

Welcome to Hel! :-)
Hel is a town on the Polish Baltic coast, located on the tip of the Hel Peninsula, some 33 kilometres (21 miles) from the Polish mainland.

Toruń, the town of gingerbread! Toruń is one of the oldest cities in Poland, and certainly one of the most beautiful ones. The medieval old town of Toruń is the birthplace of the astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus.
by Monika Sommer-Lapajew
Toruń is just two hour drive away from Poznań, a city on the Warta river in west-central Poland. Let's go there now. Poznań is very old and was one of the most important centers in the early Polish state in the tenth and eleventh centuries. Poznań is today one of the largest Polish centres of trade, industry, sports, education, technology, tourism and culture. It is particularly important academic centre, with about 130,000 students and the third biggest Polish university - Adam Mickiewicz University.

Wrocław is the largest city in western Poland. It is situated on the River Odra. It is a loveable city. A cultural hub with some great creative ideas! An interesting way to explore the city is seeking Wrocław's dwarfs! Immense fun! The city is going to be European Capital of Culture, World Book Capital and host European Film Awards in 2016.

Let's go to the centre of Poland now. Łódź first appears in the written record in a 1332 document giving the village of Łodzia to the bishops of Włocławek. In 1423 King Władysław Jagiełło granted city rights to the village of Łódź. It is now the third-largest city in Poland. Piotrkowska Street, the main high-street and tourist attraction, runs north to south for a little over five kilometres (3.1 miles). This makes it one of the longest commercial streets in the world.

Time to go down south now. Kraków, Kraków, Kraków! The heart of Poland!
