show and tell about unique things ( culture, nature, architecture, customs, food etc. ) you can find only in Poland.

lets start with one and only european Museum of Bells and Pipes in

Elbląg Canal

is a canal in Poland, in Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship, 80.5 km in length, which runs southward from Lake Drużno (connected by the river Elbląg to the Vistula Lagoon), to the river Drwęca and lake Jeziorak. It can accommodate small vessels up to 50 tons displacement. The difference in water levels approaches 100 m, and is overcome using locks and a remarkable system of tracks between lakes.

Today it is used mainly for recreational purposes. It is considered one of the most significant monuments related to the history of technology and was listed by Unesco as a memorial to world culture inheritances.

post number two.

the tree in front of the main entrance may seem like a one off. it isn't. the refusal to cut down certain trees... to my mind is idiotic.

[Moved from]: Life in Poland has priceless moments! (peasant collecting potato beetles, Chopin

I just love Poland sometimes - in between working on my computer I've been watching a peasant collecting potato beetles from his field - then just a minute ago 2 storks flew overhead at the same time as my daughter started playing a piece by Chopin on the piano.


You can't get that in England. And not because of the lack of the stripey bugs!

How can't you get that in England? Have they burnt all the pianos? I'm pretty sure classical music sounds the same everywhere and has the same nice vibe to it if listened too with a picturesque view in the background..

Merged: Unique Polish customs

This traditional dance with holy pictures goes back to Middle Ages. Performed only in the Kashubian region in northern Poland. Intriguing, I admit, but that has been their long standing tradition which they are proud of.

Really unusual.

Hahaha part of the first video was in the Polish news on TV. I thought they showed it because the picture was distroyed by dancing people who kidnapped the picture and wanted to do funny things with it. So I thought people were offended when they saw it :)
