Mikołajki and fast, very fast cars

Must-see aerial shot of Mikołajki in the newest footage regarding the 74. Rally Poland: Vimeo... It's in Masuria what you see above. Mikołajki is a beautiful town by two lakes: Mikołajskie and Tałty. The rally started yesterday and will last until 2nd July 2017. It takes place, in fact, in many different places in Masuria, including i.a. the area of: Mikołajki, Mrągowo, Węgorzewo, Gołdap, Olecko, Giżycko and Ełk. Everybody wondered who's going to win the gravel classic stage. We knew it at once, the winner could be just Masuria. The rally makes a lot of noise for a few days but it's a part of global Masurian marketing 👏🏻

Association in action!

These guys do never stop with amazing the world! Stomil's Socios, a non-profit association of fans of Olsztyn's football team, are going to do even more for Stomil Olsztyn future. Some refurbishment of the stadium will be carried out this Saturday. People just meet at 10am to do the work much quicker than it can be done as usually. Time's running. Polish FA's still able to change the decision regarding home matches to let it happen really at home. Fingers crossed! 🤞🏻

Masurian lifestyle for iPad®

Looks like we've got a weekend with Masurian wallpapers for iPads 😀 Our friend, Mrs. Maria Olszowska from Mragowo in Masuria took another nice picture. This one remainds about old good times. Hitchhiking used to be very popular in Poland until 1980s. One of the most famous Polish artists in the 60s and 70s - Karin Stanek, sang this: YouTube. What a nice piece of our history. You can download this wallparer with beautiful Masurian stork for free: here... Enjoy!! 😊

Stop and go!

Good news from Warsaw this time: PZPN. Our favourite football club - Stomil Olsztyn, is allowed to play next season in Polish Championship. There were some doubts regarding this matter but today everything changed. Maybe almost everything: Polish FA decided Stomil will play home matches not in Olsztyn but in Ostróda (about 25 miles away from the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship's capital city). It's still possible to change also this but can be hard (taking into account the stadium condition).

Clean & poppy

More poppies from Masuria. All pictures you see are from our Masurian friend, Maria Olszowska from Maragowo. Our yesterday's poppy was accompanied by a hot weather. Her today's ones are accompanied just by the clean nature of our beautiful Masuria. Masuria is one of the most cleanest parts of Poland and the EU. It's a big European advantage these days! 🏕

Swans in Masuria

You can feed them a bit but do never try e.g. to take a selfie with young birds 😉 It's not a joke, swan-parent always attacks everything and everyone who's approaching too close to their kids. Swan families are quite popular on Masurian lakes. They look beautiful while swimming together but they can be really dangerous even though you are on a boat. Please, do remember always - wildlife in Masuria is to be watched and admired in silence, not to be played with. Thx!

Life jacket warning!

Never ever let your kids take off the life jacket while sailing in Masuria. Sometimes it's very hot on the boat, no wind and water seems to be very still. Children can ask for a permit to discharge but do not agree. Sailing should be aalways a challenge for them not a boring time. Usually boys want to be brave onboard. Try to explain bravery can be safer in a life jacket.

Fantasmazuria 2017

There's a sci-fi and fantasy festival taking place in Masuria this weekend. Polish authors and fans of literature, computer games and gadgets focused on that unique part of art, are coming to Ostróda's Expo Mazury Centre. 3 days with them seems to be interesting. More details on: As a matter of fact sci-fi and fantasy is our Roman most favourite part of art. He wrote a book about the City of London reality in about 30 years. Some trader is a leading character. His cute Artificial Intelligence mobile phone predicts stock exchange future and therefore all governmental agencies and secret orders want to take it over from him. Nice story, it will be a good Hollywood film one day.

Sunny dinner under the way to Masuria

Such sunny dinners available under the way to Masuria. There's no motorway between Warsaw and northeastern Poland. It's some kind of disadvantage for Masuria but on the other hand you can enjoy really home-made meals while traveling to that part of our country. There's many family businesses running local restaurants and bars not far from the roads in Warmian-Masurian. The main course you see above is a fish cake with potatoes, cauliflower and cucumber in an yogurt sauce. Very yummy 😊

Swing bridge in Giżycko [FOOTAGE]

Mr. Socha from Olsztyn uploaded a new footage regarding the swing bridge in Giżycko, lovely located town in Masuria. The bridge was built in 1898. Have a look, it's quite hard work-out to open and close it. Not many similar bridges in Europe!

High water in Masuria

Our Masurian friend from Mrągowo - Mrs. Maria Olszowska, writes about high water in Masuria: more... She noticed and we can confirm the water in Masurian lakes is quite high now. Obviously not high enough to be dangerous for people but high enough to be dangerous for yachts passing canals linking Masurian lakes. You know, there's relatively a lot of bridges over those canals. Even 20cm higher level of the water makes the gap between the surface and bridge slightly smaller than usually. Therefore you must be very careful while sailing in Masuria via Masurian canals yet. By the way, very nice gallery of Mrs.Olszowska pictures attached to her article on the website ⛵️
