What is going on?

PRL era "voluntary" action by... middle or high school students? involving cleaning up some public area (maybe at the beginning of spring?)

Yes! So called community action - czyn społeczny in communist newspeech. On Sundays citizens carried out some light work in the neigbourhood.

Hmm, maf, what do you think about moving your PRL riddle series to another thread? E.g. the one dealing with history? Let`s keep this one for modern times.

Segregating documents?

There's the European Championship in football taking place now so I have a riddle for football fans :)

Where is it?:

Yes! Except they are no documents but mail and bills.

Hard to say. Is it in a pub or cafe located in the basement?

@pawian, I'm going to give a delph-style hint:

Sleeping well, kicking ball, here you have it and much more!

Sleeping well? Hmm, it reminds me sleeping hours in a kindergarten. Is it a soccer kindergarten??
Paulina 10 | 1,805
4 Jul 2021 #820
@pawian, no, it isn't a soccer kindergarten, but kids can do stuff there too. It's mainly known for being a place for adults kicking a ball though, although you can do other stuff there too, like running on a track or playing golf :)

It is a sports centre?
Paulina 10 | 1,805
4 Jul 2021 #822
Nope, it isn't a sports centre even though it has a few football pitches and even a small stadium :) Also - tennis courts, a sports hall, a gym, golf course, etc.

Hint - Ronaldo was there (among others)! Hence that ball on the wall :))

You know what, to some extent it is a sports and training centre of sorts, but that's not what it's called.

I don`t believe that the Museum of Sport turned into such a complex training facility ... :)
Paulina 10 | 1,805

Haha, no, you can't sleep at a museum! :)

Aaah, I forgot about that sleeping. So now it is easy - it is Remes Hotel in Opalenica.
Paulina 10 | 1,805
4 Jul 2021 #826
@pawian, yes, correct! :D

Portuguese national team was staying and training there during Euro 2012 (apparently they liked it a lot) and other teams throughout the years, including Polish national team :)

if not for clues, I wouldn`t have guessed it. I am not into organised sport so much. :)

Where is this street?

Maybe I'll leave it for jon357, if he appears...

Does it mean you recognised it immediately?????? hahaha
Paulina 10 | 1,805

Yeah, I'd recognise those street lamps everywhere ;)))

:):):) we can run a little series of Polish cities by their street lamps.

Where is this street?

I guess noone else will answer it, so... It's in Kielce and it's called Sienkiewicz Street :):

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sienkiewicz_Street,_Kielce

It isn't an ordinary street though, it's a promenade around 1270 meters long and a sort of heart of Kielce going through the city centre - the smaller streets leading from it can take you to different spots nearby like the square, the park, the Kielce Cathedral, the Palace of the Kraków Bishops, Toys' Museum, the Planty Street where the pogrom in 1946 took place and the only regular cinema left that isn't in a shopping mall - kino "Moskwa" ("Moscow" cinema lol). We were having high school "movie days" at that cinema :) Sienkiewicz Street used to be the place where you would go shopping (I bought my prom dress in one of the boutiques at that street :)) and hang out before all the shopping galleries were built and before the square got renovated. But after Galeria Echo and Galeria Korona were built some shops on the promenade went bankrupt. It's still a nice place to have a walk though and a convenient spot from where you can sightsee Kielce :)

:):):) we can run a little series of Polish cities by their street lamps.

I don't know about that, I've guessed it only because I live there, I'm not sure if people pay attention to such stuff when they sightsee... I guess I'd have to look for photos with street lamps :))

if not for clues, I wouldn`t have guessed it.

Yes, that one was difficult, so something easier this time :)

What is it?:

@Oathbreaker, it isn't a placek, but it's edible :))
OP pawian 178 | 15,906

It is a mushroom. Noble. I guess it is maślak. Yellow.
Paulina 10 | 1,805
11 Jul 2021 #836
@pawian, yes, correct! :)) It's a wild mushroom called maślak in Polish, in English it's called slippery jack or sticky bun, because of the cap's slimy surface. The bottom of the cap looks like a yellow sponge with little holes. They're great for a mushroom stew :) From what I've noticed they grow in well hidden places near conifers, often near the edge of the forest.

I think it could be this one to be more precise, judging by the look of the cap:

pl.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ma%C5%9Blak_ziarnisty

I'm not sure though, for me all of them are just maślaki :P ;)
OP pawian 178 | 15,906

judging by the look of the cap:

This can be misleading, though. The edge of the cap which shows the underneath part of it suggests it is yellow maślak which grows under larches (modrzewie). :):)

I guess I'd have to look for photos with street lamps :

I will look for them for you, don`t bother. :):)

Where?

Would you be able to tell which one is it if I posted the underneath part of the cap? The first photo is that one I posted as the riddle photo and in the second photo is another one I found in the same place, as far as I remember.

yellow maślak which grows under larches (modrzewie). :):)

Huh, that's interesting, I didn't know that :)) I found that maślak (and others - it was a whole colony :)) under a conifer in a high grass, but I don't know what kind of tree it was exactly... It was in my grandma's forest (who's an avid mushroom picker, btw :)), so I guess I could ask her whether there are larches growing over there...

I will look for them for you, don`t bother. :):)

Thank God ;D because I have no time to dig through CDs with my photos right now ;P

Where?

Zakopane (Krupówki) :))

Today I'm going to post a riddle to celebrate a certain anniversary :) It would be too easy if I posted simple "What is it?", I guess, so I added some questions with different difficulty levels. If you know an answer to just one or two of them then post it, maybe other people will answer the rest.

1. Basic level: What is it?
2. Average level: What is the anniversary all about?
3. Advanced level:
a) who designed it?
b) when was it designed? (which year)
4. Super advanced level (I guess lol): Why the colours - red and dark navy blue?

The first looks like maślak zótły, the second is a bit different so it can be maślak sitarz, the least tasty of all.

Yes, Krupówki in Zakopane.

It is not a strict rule that we have to post only our own photos. :):)

As for the badge (you certainly like military topics), I know all the answers but will wait for sb else. Especially our Polish and ex-Polish males. :):):)

These street lamps are where? City and street:

That's cool to know :)) I'll pay more attention to the trees around where I'll be finding them next time :)

the second is a bit different so it can be maślak sitarz

True, it does look different... We found quite a few mushrooms on that day, so it's possible I lumped them all together.

It is not a strict rule that we have to post only our own photos. :):)

I know, but I figured that maybe our own photos would be more difficult to guess :P

I know all the answers but will wait for sb else. Especially our Polish and ex-Polish males. :):):)

Thanks, because I'm curious about the level of knowledge of our PF patriots too ;)

These street lamps are where?

It looks like an ordinary street to me with ordinary street lamps... It seems rather big... Is it Warsaw?
