Podlasie, our beautiful Masuria's neighbouring region in Poland, makes also a lot of positive impressions on the Polish Digg-like website: Wykop... The sky does really seem to indulge over there, doesn't it?

A big ropes course for kids coming soon to Olecko in Masuria. This outdoor challenge was a big challenge by itself due to the fact it's a participatory budgeting investment: more... Olecko is not a big city in Masuria but very well known in entire Poland. About 20 years ago they just started to do some kind of unique social and cultural festival inspired by the "Northern Exposure" series (very popular in Polish TV that time). They call it "Przystanek Olecko". It is an eastern Masuria summer event.

The 6th "Baba Fest" takes place in Olsztyn, the capital city of the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship. It's a social and cultural event uniting Polish women. Their credo is: "Development & Inspiration". As a matter of fact, "baba" in Poland means expressive woman. So, the purpose of this charitable festival is to reenergise female bodies, souls and minds.

A classic car show took place today in Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship's capital city. It was the 5th event of the Olsztyn Motor Club. Many beautiful cars were exposed, including rare classics from the gloomy past we used to experience in Poland because of 45 years of the Soviet Union domination.

Chestnuts are falling off the trees: brown, shining, smooth and soft. Maybe they look just like simple seeds growing inside green, spiny cups but the tree is also able to heal. It's good at healing e.g. blood vessels. People in Poland find chestnuts as a natural source of our personal and household balance. Moreover, we make from chestnut many nutritious and nourishing products for animals and humans.
