16.11.2020 - The historical-cultural-natural route around the Tatras

The historical-cultural-natural route around the Tatras
Looking at the streets of Polish towns and cities, one can get the impression that cycling is a favourite form of recreation for Poles. It is practised on a mass scale. And whenever the weather permits, city bicycle paths get very crowded. And in the pandemic era, there are definitely more and more bikes. Many people have switched to cycling, because this is how they can get to work rather than using public transport and its association with the coronavirus. Others, even those we’d never...

16.11.2020 - Raised Bogs – a Unique European Area on the Polish-Slovak Borderland

Raised Bogs – a Unique European Area on the Polish-Slovak Borderland
The Tatras. To the Tatras and about the Tatras. Undoubtedly these are a “national treasure” for Poles and Slovaks. But in the Tatra Foothills there are also other gems hidden of which very few are aware. In the shadow of the Tatra Mountains, for thousands of years, the Podhale peatlands have been growing, creating a unique landscape of forests and raised bogs. This largest cross-border complex of peat bogs in the Carpathians spans the south of Małopolska and in the north of Žilinský...

Museum on the tracks –  discovering the history of the narrow-gauge railroad on the Polish-Slovak borderland
This is how it is – a good idea gives rise to another one. This was also the case with the project dedicated to peat bogs. The renovated narrow-gauge railroad wagon, which used to transport workers extracting peat, and its popularity among the visitors, was an inspiration for another project devoted to the former railroad in the region, “Museum on the tracks –  discovering the history of the narrow-gauge railroad on the Polish-Slovak borderland”. And another original tourist...

Tracing the monuments of technology from Podhale to Liptov
Next to the smells of warm bread and freshly cut grass, it is the smell of a new book that is most often mentioned as the one we have the most pleasant associations with. Many people admit that the first thing they do with a new book is to sniff it because the smell of a new book is unique and carries the best emotions, expectations of something new and extraordinary. However, taking such a promise in hand, hardly anyone wonders how it was made. Now, in the era of digitisation, typesetting...

16.11.2020 - Sypaniec in Koci Zakątek

Sypaniec in Koci Zakątek
Sypaniec in Koci Zakątek. For a layman it may sound like a good cake served in a cosy cafe. Literally, this means a sypaniec (a type of apple cake) in a Cat’s Corner. But as for the rest, let's start from the beginning. The Cat's Corner is Kacwin, one of the oldest villages in Polish Spisz. The name is said to come from the German Katzenwinkel, which means ‘cat's corner’. References to Kacwin which have been found date from 1320. According to preserved documents, in that year Master...

Saving from oblivion photographs of the Polish-Slovak Tatra Foothills and Tatra Mountains
“Whatever happened happened Whatever may happen is happening now Whatever will be will be But it’s always good there are places To which we return in our memories.” “Let’s respect our memories, let’s relish them, let’s learn to appreciate them”, the Skaldowie band used to sing. At home, we recall various events in our lives, most often reaching for photos/pictures. And, let’s be clear, the older ones, developed, carefully arranged in albums are viewed more often than the...
