Niepołomice: heritage among pristine nature.

What place could be better for a short getaway from the city than one beloved by its king centuries ago? And since that king (the only one Poles called Great!) reigned 700 years ago, the place has turned into a heritage site with, of course, the seven-hundred-year-old royal castle. It may just be a hunting lodge, but we affectionately call it the “Little Wawel”, an especially fitting name since many paintings and sculptures from the royal chambers were moved there for the renovation of Wawel chambers.

Medieval history glimpsed through the Lenten veil.

In the Middle Ages, Lent, known especially in the East as the Great Fast, was a time of deep reflection and mourning, as people focused on the Passion of Christ. All forms of entertainment were prohibited, organs in churches fell silent, flower decorations were forbidden, as were weddings and other celebrations of joy. Many communities adopted the practice of visually separating the congregation from the most sacred spaces of the church. More

Bidding Winter a Fatty and Not-Overfond Farewell.

Fat Thursday, the day when we indulge in glutting on fatty and sweet delicacies without their weight lying heavy on our conscience, comes but once a year. While some point to the Roman origin of such a tradition of saying farewell to winter, others note that it has a far longer pedigree, and yet others claim that it hails from the Slavic lands where it evolved from pagan rites. Nonetheless, everyone agrees that such judgements cannot be pronounced without gorging on angel wings and doughnuts. More
