Interesting places in Poland - COLLAB



Hello!
I am so excited to tell you that I've done my very first collab with Zara (SaRitzy)! Check out her lovely blog HERE. We prepared posts about interesting places in our countries.
Today I'm writing about interesting places in Poland. There are plenty of nice destinations in my country - I'm sharing with you some of them now 💚


1. The Crooked Forest

It is a groove of oddly-shaped pine trees located in the north-western Poland. This groove of approximately 100 pines was planted around 1930. Each pine tree bends sharply to the North just above ground level, then curves back upright after a sideways excursion of three to nine feet (1-3 m). It is generally believed that some form of human tool or technique was used to make the trees grow this way, but the method isn't currently known. Some people surmise that a snowstorm could have knocked the trees like this, but to date nobody knows what really happened to these pine trees. 
I haven't been there yet, but I'm planning to do there someday. It looks amazing, right?

2. The Skull Chapel

The chapel was built in last quarter of the 18th century in Kudowa-Zdrój (south-west Poland). It serves as a massive grave of people who died during the Thirty Years' War (1618-1648), three Silesian Wars (1740-1763), as well as of people who died because of cholera epidemics, plague and hunger. There are thousands of skulls and skeletal remains "adorning" its interior walls, as well as floor, ceiling and foundations. 
I found out about this place last summer and I really wanted to visit it since then. At last I visited it this May! I was so fascinated about that! It was exciting to see so many skulls and bones all around me!

3. The Białowieża Forest

It is located in north-east Poland, it's the largest and last remnant of Europe's primeval forest, and it is a home to over 800 European bison. The bio-diverse forest on the border between Poland and Belarus has a variety of trees, including 500-year-old oaks, and it supports bison, deer, wolf, lynx, and golden eagles, among others. A lot of visitors want to see the Białowieża National Park inside the forest. The European Bison Show Reserve is also a must-see. 
I've never been to the Białowieża National Park, because my parents are really afraid of ticks (there are plenty of them in Białowieża), but I'd love to visit that place one day. Some of my friends have been there and they really liked it.

4. Biskupin - the archaeological open-air museum

It's an archaeological site and a life-size model of an Iron Age fortified settlement in northern-central Poland. The excavation and the reconstruction of the prehistoric settlement has played an instrumental part in Polish historical consciousness. The site is one of Poland's official national Historic Monuments  and tracked by the National Heritage Board of Poland.
I have wanted to visit Biskupin since I was a little girl. It seems to be very interesting to me and I hope to go there soon (maybe this summer!). 
  
It is believed Biskupin looked like this in the Iron Ages,

5. The Tatra Mountains

It is the highest in Poland mountain range that forms a natural border between Slovakia and Poland. 200 unusually picturesque mountain lakes are located there. Tatra Mountains have been the most popular destination of wanders for more than 150 years.
I have visited the Tatra Mountains twice and I absolutely love them! They look stunning and I think it's one of the most beautiful places in my country. It's a must-see if you visit Poland!

6. The Table Mountains

The Table Mountains is a mountain range in Poland and the Czech Republic. The range is formed of sandstone and, as the only one in Poland, presents plated structure with sheer mountain ledges.
I was there this May and I was very fascinated about the Table Mountains. They look really cool!

7. The Multimedia Fountain Park 

It is a complex of four fountains located in Warsaw in east-central Poland.
I've been there a lot of times and I really like this place. During the day the park looks like normal complex of huge fountains, but at night it's awesome! All the fountains are lighted in many lovely colours, that looks terrific!

8. Energylandia

If you want to have a lot of fun, you should visit Energylandia - the biggest amusement park in Poland, located in the south. There are plenty of attractions, e.g. roller coasters, carousels, water rides etc.
I haven't been there yet, but I really want to! I heard many good opinions about Energylandia.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

9. The Crooked House

It is an unusually shaped building in Sopot, by the sea. It was built in 2004. It's a part of a shopping center. 
I haven't seen it yet, but I want to. Its structure looks amazing, right?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

10. Polish beaches

Perhaps Polish beaches aren't the most beautiful in Europe, and the sea is quite cold, but I think they are really worth visiting. I've visited them twice and I really enjoyed that! In my opinion they're amazing! 


That's all. I hope you liked reading about this 10 places located in Poland.

  3. All of these places look amazing, Ann!! Thank you so much for sharing more about them!! :) The Crooked House looks so interesting, and I think I'd want to visit the Tatra Mountains the most! The fountain park you shared pictures of reminds me of something we have here in Atlanta, GA called Centennial Olympic Park, which has a TON of fountains - although I don't think they light up!
