Masurian Nessie

Beautiful sunny day today in Masuria. Time for swimming, time for Masurian lake monsters :) There's no other Nessie in Polish Lake District than our Bruno from time to time but lakes - undoubtedly - stay globally unique anyway!

Masurian Crab Apple

What you meet when you hike or ride across Masurian fields and meadows in the summer? Obviously lake after lake and bird after bird, in general :) However, there's a lot of European crab apple trees too. Don't eat these fruits much. They are rather sour than sweet and relatively good to quench thirst. But much better to use them later at home. It's not an offence in Poland to take a few with you and turn into a good cake or jam.

Cross-country mountain biking in Masuria

Masuria is a heaven for a cross-country biking. Country paths look very good among colourful farmlands and make impression you just want to follow vivid colours of Masurian nature beyond the summer horizon. The old glacier, that shaped these beautiful landscapes thousands years ago, left some kind of characteristic fossils you can find by many Masurian roads. They look like little thunder arrows but they're fossil guards, primeval bolemnites that lived in Masuria very long time ago.

Masurians in Rio

It's good to know a few sportsmen from Masuria represent Poland in Rio. No olympic medals for Masuria this time but many thanks to all of them for a great time while watching their efforts on BBC in the UK.

Holly Place

Probably you don't expect many sacred (and mysterious) spots in northeastern Poland but there's relatively a lot of them. One of the most famous is called "Swiete Miejsce" (English: "Holly Place"). It is located in the forest, upon beautiful Rospuda river, in today's Podlaskie voivodeship. You must visit it in late June, around the summer solstice, to enjoy fully its old mysteriousness. Our Bruno is a brisk little boy but he's always full of respect to the living nature and the ancient times you can feel in a specific way while coming and coming back to the sacred spot "Holly Place".

Perseids in Masuria

Masuria is one of the best places in Poland and in the EU you can watch beautiful perseids streaking across the sky in August. Picture above taken by our Daga with her old iPhone® so you can see the Moon first of all :) However, you'd love this meteor shower over Masuria. Most impressive views are always over the calm surface of Great Masurian Lakes.
