Red Square

Hello again!:)
In today's photo you can see the square just next to the 'Planty' Park and the monument of one of the most famous Polish poet Adam Mickiewicz.
Why the Red Square? It is sometimes called that by the people of Nowy Sacz because of the red brick (it's obvious:)) but also because of the monument. Is it beuatiful? We do not know. For sure it seems to be in socialist style (like in Moscow, this is why this place is called Red Square). Mickiewicz deserved something better:)

This is the detail which we promised to show you. The creatures in the paintings look similar to mitological griffins. We found it interesting:)

Autumn emptiness

Empty park near Nowy Sacz's castle. The most colourful season in the year is also usually the most depressive and sad. Paradoxes of our world:)

Better late than never:)

When we posted our previous photo in the late summer we really did not expect that the next one we present you in the middle of the autumn. We know that you were extremely patient and we appreciate it very much!
So, today we have something for really patient people:) - chess table on the Square of May 3rd in Nowy Sacz.
We hope to update our blog next time sooner than in the winter:) Take care!

170 years of photography

Today is the 170th anniversary of public photography. In January 1839 Louis Daguerre (French artist and chemist) announced creation of Daguerreotype - type of photograph. This patent was bought by French government and on August 19, 1839 it was given to the whole world as a "gift". Perfect gift:)
We decided to celebrate this day by photographing some old cameras: Zorki (Зоркий), Smena (Смена), Precisa Beier and new one: Fuji.

Swedish Chapel

This is so-called 'Swedish Chapel' ('Kapliczka Szwedzka') from 1771. It is situated near Jagiellonska Street. It commemorates the victory of our town during the Swedish Deluge (Nowy Sacz was the first town in Poland where the Swedes became defeated). The chapel was built in the place where the Swedish soldiers were buried.

Stop and read

In this 'book' there is written information about the place where it is situated (this particular is next to the 'boulders' in the 'Planty' Park).
In Nowy Sacz you can find such 'infoboards' near the castle as well (and maybe in some other places where we didn't notice them:))
