Winter in the first photo where Jesus is dead, and spring after his resurrection? Are the flowers in second picture meant to represent different countries? Each ribbon is 2 different colours e.g red and white for Poland?

Yes although I wouldn`t call it winter, rather forlorn barren land. And then a new life began.

As for the next pic, ribbons are not important. Hint - what is behind the flowers? Next hint - check the date.

Another riddle in the second photo: what is it?

Something Smolensky? I see what looks like the end of the word kłamstwa and the smolensk crazies are the only ones I can think of who'd mix flowers and invective that way....

The writing's too small for me to see, however there's an obvious Warsaw connection.

the date.

Maybe Maf is right and it's something to do with Smolensk, it's the 2 year anniversary as such, but if it is, it seems odd that you've tagged it onto riddles about Easter.

Perhaps they want LK to rise from the grave...

Yes, Maf is very close, now say what is under the wreaths.
BTW, when I wrote :Another riddle I didn`t mean the continuation of the Easter series. Another means a different category, doesn`t it? :):) Sorry for misleading you.

Ironside guessed correctly but his post contained off-topic stuff and was Randomised. He wrote: Obviously its the Wawel and President's LK place of eternal rest. Hence flowers and ribbons. Let`s add that not only President Lech Kaczyński is buried in the tomb placed in one of Wawel Castle`s underground crypts but also his wife, Maria Kaczyńska. She was a good woman. They both died in the 2010 Polish Air Force One`s crash in Smoleńsk, Russia.

Next one:

What and where?

Should have guessed that especially as I can see that one of the ribbons has ' prezydenta' written on it. Oh well, onto the plane.......
OP pawian 161 | 9,971
14 Apr 2019 #2,350
Good eye for details, I didn`t read "Prezydenta", these inscriptions seemed so indiscernible.

Yes, that new plane riddle is an expert thing, we need to wait for sb who is interested in aviation. :)

Sth else instead: what does it symbolise?

Will there be prizes after your summing up on April 11th? ;) After all, we have all been very good students :):)

Yes, I think we can officially close the first season of riddles. Each season lasts two months.

I have loaded over 60 photos concerning Polish history, lifestyle, food, culture etc. Only a few haven`t been guessed, some are still waiting for a lucky guesser.

polishforums.com/travel/poland-photo-riddles-25380/78/#msg1684156

One riddle has been provided by Dougpol.

Looking through your answers, I counted full guesses and halves too.

Who made it to the podium in the first season?

First prize - Chemikiem - 20 correct guesses.
Second prize - Atch
Third prize - Mafketis.

I can provide the exact results for anybody who wants but on your request only.

Congratulations to all winners who know a great deal about Poland as well as thanks to all participants for your persistent attendance and wonderful intellectual effort.

Let`s say the new season has been started with the plane picture above.

The prizes, a seperate one for each winner, is this stuff which also makes another riddle - what is it exactly?

I am struggling to think of vodka with a red cap but one that does is Prezydent - so that is my guess
OP pawian 161 | 9,971

Sorry, it is not President which was cheap vodka, completely out of question as a present. :)

In light of you owning a nuclear fallout farm, I was going to say it was a prepper's bottle of liquid potassium iodide for radiation exposure. But that would be too little too late at this point.

Therefore, my answer is Sobieski. This would makes sense too given your station in life as a high school teacher.

We cognoscenti however always reach for Potocki. :)

what does it symbolise?

The tragedy of what happened to the Polish Jews of Kraków? Departure of those sent to the concentration camps? Those chairs are a memorial to those imprisoned and who died in the Kraków Ghetto and the death camps. Those chairs are in Plac Bohaterów Getta.

The prizes

I was only kidding about the prizes! I think sh1tty is right and it's Sobieski vodka though, none of the cheap stuff for the prizewinners ;)

Yes, Sobieski. I avoid radiation by drinking Sobieski and nibbling lard. It is the best method, invented by Chernobyl residents and it worked - they survived. Me too. :)

Hey, did you notice that when you answer correctly, it is the only time when you tell the truth in the forum? :):) I am the only guy who makes you give up lying, at least in this thread. - it is amazing! :):)

How about dropping in more often? There are a few unsolved riddles, check the posts above.

The tragedy of what happened to the Polish Jews of Kraków?

Yes, it symbolises piles of furniture which was left on the square .after Krakow Jews had been deported to death camps.

none of the cheap stuff for the prizewinners ;)

Let`s be generous, just once.. :):)

What is this riddle about?

After much pondering, I have come to the conclusion that it is a diamond pheasant;)
That is all I can say!

A diamond pheasant;)
You are very close but ..... it is not so easy.:):)

As for the plane riddle above:

Yes, we need to wait for sb who is interested in aviation. :)

Actually, not. The plane is connected with the history of Poland so anybody who is really good at it should guess correctly.

You are very close

Surely it's not a pheasant impersonator ;)
Without more of a clue, I won't get this, it just looks to be a diamond pheasant ( Lady Amherst's pheasant ) in a cage. Probably at the zoo.

The plane

Is a Junkers Ju-52/3m g10e ( Amiot AAC.1 Toucan )
It is in the Polish Aviation Museum in Kraków.

diamond pheasant

It is and at the same time it isn`t. How is it possible?
It was displayed at the Pet Fair, not the zoo. It might be a little clue. Another clue - focus on my quote above - diamond pheasant.

Is a Junkers Ju-52/3m g10e in the Polish Aviation Museum in Kraków.

Yes! Now, what part in the Polish history did it play? The part which also belongs to the history of the construction.

It is and at the same time it isn`t.

Is it some type of hybrid/cross breed?

what part in the Polish history did it play?

It was used in the bombing of Warsaw during the invasion of Poland. The plane is a bomber version of the Junkers Ju 52/3m and had been fitted with two bomb bays.
OP pawian 161 | 9,971
18 Apr 2019 #2,363
No, it isn`t a hybrid, it is a pure diamond pheasant but there is sth wrong with it anyway. But don`t look for minute details! The riddle is perfectly visible.

Yes, the plane was used as a bomber to drop incendiary bombs on Warsaw, the indomitable city, in 1939.

It can't spell? Who made the sign? Someone who knows a lot about barzanty?
OP pawian 161 | 9,971
18 Apr 2019 #2,365
Yes! Point! The riddle was about the spelling - it is not diamond but diremond in the photo. :) And the sign was made by a grower who was an expert on keeping exotic poultry but not on spelling. :)

Not everyone was happy with Duda being elected president?

The riddle was about the spelling

Aha! Obviously I didn't look closely enough ;)

A PO voter suffering from DDS (Duda Derangement Syndrome).

An interesting insight into the Psychological Analysis of Vandalism

ncjrs.gov/App/publications/abstract.aspx?ID=70758

- In general, vandalism may be motivated by malicious greed...by a political ideology, by the desire for revenge on a particular person, by frustration...

- Vandalism permits powerless individuals to strike out against the institutions which control them and to take charge of the situation themselves, arousing fear in others and raising their own self-esteem.


Interesting how the photo was taken on 24 May 2015. Duda was still an MEP and would assume the office of president only three months later on 6 August 2015.

The vandalism was all for naught. :)

Not everyone was happy with Duda being elected president?

Yes, but the damage takes place before the actual voting. Afterwards, nobody cares because it is too late anyway.. :)

This one is easy on the surface- what and where?

But with a harder subquestion - what had been located on the spot before the sculpture was erected?



Chemikiem 6 | 2,113

That is the sculpture of Jan Matejko in Planty Park, Kraków. Before it was erected, there had been a monument thetre to the soldiers of the Soviet Army.
