The Magnificent Beauty of Nature's Landscapes in Poland

A few minutes ago a forum member, fan of travelling, advised me to visit Alaska or Australia for superb views. I thanked him politely and replied I wasn`t interested. Quite right so because there is no need to leave Poland to get great sights which can satisfy all tastes.

Table Mountains, as I promised.

Thanks for the photos, Pawian. Looks quite interesting.

advised me to visit Alaska or Australia for superb views.

Ahem ... in this particular case I didn't recommend to visit Alaska or Australia for the views, but to experience real wilderness ... :)

There is some wilderness in Poland, too.

But not today.

Interesting by the way, that the Błędne Skały labyrinth above is actually in the Czech Republic and that you can (have to?) hike in from Poland to see it.

Interesting, by the way, that you love creating your own theories which are too often far from true...: ):):):):):) Where did you get this info from?? From an old Nazi guidebook? :):):):)

summitpost.org/g-ry-sto-owe/567582

My mistake though, as I got confused by the orientation of the map and that they are talking about the Czech Republic in the text. You see: unlike some Poles here I am able to admit a mistake... :)

From an old Nazi guidebook?

Skalni Mesto (Rock Town/City) which is in the Czech Republic is more impressive than Błędne Skały which is in Poland.

Yes, indeed, you are........

but you seem to have hit the roof at the same time:

Numbnut.

Sorry but your admittance isn`t so impressive any more.

:):):):)

Quite unnessessary because I didn`t mean offence. I really thought you read it in an old Nazi German guidebook published before WW2.

Well, that came across completely different here. But I will believe you, so forget what I said and sorry. Nazis, Jews and similar stuff is brought up on PF far too often for my taste.

Yes, now I see it.

OK.
I won`t exploit that soft point of yours. :):):):)

Table Mountains

Is this where the "Chronicles of Narnia" were filmed?
OP pawian 151 | 7,977    
20 Dec 2012  #13
Almost.:):):) They tried but the location was already occupied by another film crew. Two Polish films were shot there.

I think I saw the same landscapes in the movie... and read somewhere that was filmed in Poland.

Edit.
It was filmed in many locations in: New Zealand, Czech Rep, Poland, USA, England

Great photos as usual. I personally like the second pic the best. It has quite a surreal effect.

Not too big but there is wilderness in Poland.

Wild Poland

Thanks.
I prefer this one for its misty mystic atmosphere.

What is wilderness, first of all?

For me "real" wilderness means: I can walk for days (or sometimes even weeks) in any direction without seeing a human or a sign of civilization. Good examples in my country are Arnhem Land, the Kimberleys and the Cape York Peninsula. There is nothing comparable in Europe.
OP pawian 151 | 7,977

It means that the Wiki definition of wilderness was written by a European. :):):):)

But I am sure you could walk in Biebrza Swamps for days without seeing a human. During spring floods, even weeks! :):):):):):)

There is nothing comparable in Europe.

This pathetic Europe! Not only is it experiencing financial problems, but it also lacks proper wilderness for Other! :):):):):):)):)

Maybe by a Pole? ;)

It's very hard to describe what I mean. You'd have to go there to understand.

but it also lacks proper wilderness

Of course, because you've chopped down and killed everything centuries ago...

This pathetic Europe!

That's what YOU said.

Yes, it is so mystic! Inpalpable! Enigmatic! Spiritual! :):):):)

Yes, we Europeans, are nasty destroyers. While you, native Australians, managed to retain your traditional/primordial bond with nature. :):):):)

That's what YOU said.

Yes! You think I will deny that I said it??? :):):) You don`t know me.

As long as you don't have a clue, you shouldn't really belittle that. Get out of your country and educate yourself, barbarian! :)

Everyone around the globe is guilty; no need to mention that. Europeans were just the first ones to completely mess up their continent.

It seems some are more than the others. From my perspective all those that were chopping and killing everything in sight in Europe or should I say “the Islands” were sent to Australia as a reword, a bit bigger Island, it’s only natural it will take You a bit longer to achieve the same degree of damage, It’s just a matter of time. Enjoy it while you still can.

Really sad story when you see for what they were convicted and sent to the colonies sometimes. The destruction of Europe's environment started way earlier though:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deforestation_during_the_Roman_period

it's only natural it will take You a bit longer to achieve the same degree of damage

It was really bad in the 1980's, but since then large swaths of land have been set aside and declared national parks or protected areas. Tourism is more important than logging, and even our horrible politicians seem to have understood that now.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Reserve_System
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_national_parks_of_Australia

Have you got children

Yup. One of the reasons why I was so upset about the school massacre in Newtown (see Off Topic).

Wow! Two moderators have taken part in my thread! I am thrilled.

As a reward, another beautiful site in Poland.

Lakes in the Tatra Mountains.

The grandest lake is called Sea Eye. The second is Black Pond. The rest - I don`t know.

A few lakes are located in the Valley of 5 Ponds.

Unfortunately...

Yes, P3, that is right. If I lived in the Sahara Desert, I would probably dream of visiting different landscapes. But I live in Poland where we have everything what counts as beautiful landscape - the sea, lakes, rivers, mountains, hills, deserts, forests, wilderness, etc etc.

With two exceptions: Grand Canyon and Niagara Falls aren`t Polish..

Well, you can`t have everything after all. Pity.
