Teutonic castle in Szczytno

Szczytno is one of the most charming towns in Masuria. Over 100 years ago the most famous Polish writer - Henryk Sienkiewicz, wrote a novel about Medieval times in today's northeastern Poland. In 15th century Teutonic Order was ruling over our Masuria. One of their strategic castles was in Szczytno. And Henryk Sienkiewicz wrote about this in his "Krzyżacy" (Polish: "The Knights of the Cross"). Now the castle is almost completely destroyed. But it seems the European Union can help to restore some parts of the ruins. The objective is a strategic improvement of the number of the local tourism attractions. As a matter of fact, everybody read and even watched "Krzyżacy" in Poland. So, the idea is good. More about it: Polsat News TV

Masurian birds' life in the early spring

There's still a lot of fruits on trees, our birds love so much in Masuria. Masurian nature keeps them somehow safe, throughout the whole winter, to let those little tweeting creatures outlive hard weather time. Have a look at the picture above, fruits are small and frozen but birds find them tasety and very nutritive.

Masurian summer lunch in an early European spring

Today a bit of light Masurian summer for lunch. Slightly fried cottage-cheese-stuffed dumplings with strawberries, low-fat yogurt and honey from Masuria. Not sugar- and gluten-free exactly, but very nice meal to cheer up while a lot of cold rain outside the window 🌧 😋 🍽

Golden jelly from Masurian forests

There's something strange but good looking in Masurian forests, too. Mostly in yellow and orange but sometimes transparent, too. It's golden jelly fungus, a creature living on deciduous trees and their broken branches.
