MAGICAL PLACES IN POLAND
When we think of Zakopane, we immediately think of the characteristic construction in the region, manifested in the huts encountered. Roofs decorated with claws, tops above the windows with a sun motif. Who knows that this style, called Zakopane, was introduced by Stanisław Witkiewicz? The convergence of names is no coincidence here, the architect was the father of Witkacy himself, a colorful figure of the interwar period. Zakopane, in addition to the notorious Krupówki, however, hides even more secrets and picturesque places.

He founded the entire Renaissance city. He gave the zamość’s placement acts in 1580. The whole urban premise is based on harmony, on the model of the human body. Our pearl of the Renaissance, a little forgotten but still captivating.
FORGOTTEN CITIES OF ŚWIĘTOKRZYSKIE VOIVODESHIP
Wiślica, Korczyn, Chmielnik, or Pińczów. Cities located away from the hustle and bustle and fast life of Krakow. Few visitors to southern Poland will consciously go to these areas. Although they may seem inconspicuous, it is worth visiting them. These areas under the partitions passed into the rule of the Russians. It’s not been an easy 123 years for their residents. Kielce had the most severe life, and the greatest poverty prevailed here. In their history, however, they will find unique moments and discoveries. For example, on the territory of the church in Wiślica, one of the oldest baptismal scavengers in Polish lands was found. Also in the vicinity of present-day Pińczów, in the village of Kopernia, in 1257 a document was signed confirming the location of Krakow.
