Masurian Croatia



When we realised this year World Cup is not for us, because our team looked rather like on a holiday than on the challenge, our family invaded Croatia! Croatians looked good enough on the pitch in Russia to support them while resting in their country. Unforgettable experience to watch what was happening over there thanks to the Croatian team fighting like true eagles. All the Croatia was like exploding volcano of positive energy when they won over Argentina and England. We wish one day something like that happened in Poland!!! 🇵🇱🤞🏻❤️ You know our Roman is a great passionate about the World Cup 2030? Have a look: here... He says such a big deal can take place in our country, if we co-operate better to each other. It’s probably the worst what happens to Poland, in his opinion, that Polish people hardly ever play as a team these days.

Masurian wild cherry



Summer walk across Masurian off-roads brings good memories from our childhood. Wild cherry tree always ment a lot of pleasure for us. All we like cherries but our Grazyna loves them at most. She can eat everything what includes any kind of cherry. Obviously it was she, who as the first in our family tasted cherry pudding! 🙂

Galindia - back to the past



Galindia, called: 'Masurian Heaven', is an unique resort located by the lake Bełdany. You can really experience some kind of time travel over there. It looks like a compound of ancient tribe of Galindians, who used to live in Mrągowo area as well as close to lakes Śniardwy and Mamry. Staff working at Galindia wear very old style clothes. There are sculptures relating to habits and beliefs of Galindians. A few times a year you can watch performances bringing former rituals to the present day. Go discover everything by yourself, a lot of nice surprises in front of you: www.galindia.com.pl

Save the bees in Masuria



The number of bees in the world is systematically decreasing. Unfortunately, it's cos of us at most. We make too much pollution like exhausts, detergents or pesticides to let bees do their job in nature. What would happen to the muesli without honey is even not the point. The point is concerning the natural process of pollination. You know bees do it in a best way. Nature wouldn't manage without them. Therefore we ask for saving each one bee you can meet in Masuria while your holiday stay. Let it be, don't kill at all. All we need bees. Thank you in advance and best regards to you from our family team as well as our friend from Mrągowo, Maria Olszowska, who took the pic your eyes can enjoy above.

Summer fruity breakfast from Masuria



Our summer breakfasts in 1980s looked almost exactly like this. It’s our Pawel and Sylwia creation made of our favourite Masurian fruits. Sweet strawberries, mellow gooseberries, nice red currant and organic dairy (yoghurt plus cottage cheese). We added always oats and ate everything with passion ❤️
