what are they doing and why?

Collecting money (connected to a wedding?)

Yes! Can you develop the subject? And not only money...... :):)

Can you develop the subject?

Is this the thing where they lower the line to 'prevent' cars from going and raise after getting money/present? Is it just for wedding guests?

I saw it a number of years ago on Złote łany (reality soap set in the countryside) but I forget the finer details...

There was also a local(?) custom where the bride and groom thank their parents for raising them (and symbolizing reorienting priorities from parents to spouse - though sadly that often doesn't work out in Poland).

not only money...

Yes, any fire water is very welcomed ;)

Yes, maf, perfect answer, I call it Ransom on the Road and it concerns all cars in the wedding convoy.
Yes, Looker, fire water is the best. The guys above got it too. People who do it are mostly local winos.

Where are these hanging books?

It's a sort of museum. A small one and very specific.

First I thought it is a library in Warsaw. But it wasn`t. I had to google it and probably found the answer. But that would be unfair and too easy, so I will give non-native members a chance.

My first thought was a library or bookshop, but I haven't found anything yet.......

If Paulina was here, she'd probably recognise it. A bit of a clue as to its general location.

Yes, not far. In Świętokrzyskie.

A place with a strong literary connection. the building with the books is now an attraction in itself, however the other building on the site is the reason it exists.

Yes, not far. In Świętokrzyskie.

So initially I was wrong coz I found pics of hanging books in the former printing house in Opole.

Is it a Toy Museum in Kielce?

No, it's outside Kielce though in the general region.

A small clue. We went in late June, however a good time to go would be in March.

It's in the Ciekoty educational centre 'glass house' which is next to Stefan Żeromski's wooden manor house.

Ciekoty

Exactly there!

Very worth a visit if you're in the area.

Took me a while to find it! Good riddle!

Very worth a visit if you're in the area.

It's an area I haven't got round to visiting yet, one of many on my 'to see' bucket list :)

Świętokrzyskie is maybe the nicest part of Poland in my experience. There's something special about it.

Hmm, I have mixed feelings. The residents of it are called Penknives for their coarse character and brutal nature.

This one's more for the non-residents of Poland (since it's well known).

I've been on here for a boat cruise; what's happening and where is it?

Yes, therefore I will shut my fingers for a while.

Dolno, you missed the bit about it being for non-residents.

There's still time to delete your answer so Chemikiem etc can have a go.

Yeah I did I'm very sorry , I will make sure I read the captions on these posts in the future.

Great, thanks!

Have you been there? It's a fun journey. An interesting part of Poland too. A storm broke out while we were there and I got an SMS saying "Welcome to Russia"...

No sadly read it in a magazine , at the dentists I think, I will go one day.

what's happening and where is it?

Trip on the Elbląg Canal which runs between Lake Drużno and Jeziorak Lake. There is a 100m difference in water levels due to the steep elevation.The water stretches are broken up by land stretches between the lakes. This is overcome by a series of inclined planes and locks.The inclined planes consist of rail tracks, and the boats are carried on carriages that run on the rails.

Quite a feat of engineering! More info here for those who are interested:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elbl%C4%85g_Canal

I've been on here for a boat cruise;

Did you do the whole length of the canal? Apparently the return trip takes about 11 hours!
