Is it Poland's tallest lighthouse in Świnoujście?
OP pawian 161 | 9,971
28 Apr 2019 #2,372
Sorry, no, mine is not even half as tall as the one in Świnoujście. But it is unfair, I was going to show the lighthouse in Swinoujście soon, why are you so fast? :):):)

Hints: mine was also built by Germans. It isn`t a lighthouse.

It's not? Looks a lot like a lighthouse! Oh well, back to the drawing board I guess. Won't be so fast this time ;)

No, of course, be so fast,

Lookout tower wielka sowa ..... next please this is fun.

Yes! The observation/view tower on Great Owl peak in Owl Mountains in Lower Silesia.

Ok, as you seem a specialist on the region, let`s stay there for a while to have more fun, indeed. But to make it more difficult, a slightly limited view: what and where is this brick building on the left?

Yes, Chemikiem , Ząbkowice and its Tower is really Leaning, no tricks with the camera.

Dolnośląsk, you say you are not an expert on Lower Silesia so why such a nick?

Still in the region, easy:

Where exactly is this rock?

Yes, Szczeliniec Wielki. Nice name - Great Gap. Or more exactly: Great Gappler. :)
Well, in this case, half a point to SB and Dolno.

A town hall - where? ( renovated with EU funds)

I see, so we will need someone who actually visited the town in Lower Silesia.

It is 70 km south of Kraków and 40 kms away from Zakopane situated in the Beskids.It is the most famous Polish spa for children.

I only posted it as an experiment! I wouldn't seriously expect anyone to know where it is.

Oops, I think I've posted this in the wrong thread somehow...

That`s nice you are so nice for members as to reveal so many facts. But if you carry on like that, your riddles might be too easy. :):)

Or not? Is that what is needed here to counterbalance my extremely difficult ones? :)

OK, I have an idea, I will only take a guess at your photos after nobody is able to guess correctly within one day. That will be the fairest solution.

Nah. I spent 3 bloody summers in that awful place Pawian with my infant daughter.
My message to others: Avoid!

more members to participate

I will dig out some photos when I have fed my guest. She is a pain in the arse, is very vocal and the black ones are the worst. I can't wait for her owner to come back and get her.

Nah. I spent 3 bloody summers in that awful place Pawian with my infant daughter.

I spent there about two years from all combined summers and weekends as an infant and a young boy. That was the best time of my life and whenever I visited Rabka with my kids, I showed them places where I had fallen into the river, played cowboys and Indians with a self made bow, learnt how to climb trees, picked and devoured cherries by kilos and then thrown up etc etc.

Doug, don`t take such experiences and then wonderful memories away from your kids. :)

A town hall - where?

It's in Nowa Ruda :)
OP pawian 161 | 9,971
28 Apr 2019 #2,392
Yes, exactly, the Market Square there had been renovated before our arrival, looked very pretty, indeed, what I couldn`t say about the rest of the town which seemed very neglected. But I hope they have made some progress with it till today.

What and where is it? A hint - certainly not what you are thinking of - that would be too easy. :):)

IF, and I could be wrong.....it is easy Pawian. Well - if you've been there. Great restaurant too!
Pieskawa Skala. (sorry, no Polish fonts..)

propaganda.

Where do you live again Ironside? How much have you contributed? Now be off with you!

I spent there about two years from all combined summers and weekends as an infant and a young boy.

(Rabka)...I spent a week or two there every summer when my daughter was in her pram until she was four - my liver is still recovering from the long evenings sat on the verandah:) I too had fun in the river after a few sherberts:)

Summers could be bloody cold there too I remember!

Sorry, it is not Pieskowa Skała, although it also boasts of a similar arcade courtyard.

Wow! I wonder where it is then. Somewhere out east....?
