Sun-kissed and shaded

The building of Nowy Sacz's townhall. The sun makes that everything looks more amicable, warm and optimistic!

Green, green, green...

We promised you some time ago the spring photo from the banks of the Dunajec River. You can see how this place has changed during one month - the spring makes miracle:)

Nowy Sacz Welcomes You!

Nowy Sacz Welcomes You ('Nowy Sacz Wita').
Today you can see the spring view on the castle and its neighborhood. This place is much more charming now than in winter. One of its element which you can not see during wintry months is flower clock (see in the below photo).

The season of bicycle's trips has already started! Thanks to this, we are going to post more photos from outside the town. The Nowy Sacz's region has many beautiful little towns, villages and places of superb nature. We will try to show you the most interesting of them.

Today we are visiting Niskowa - a village located about 5 kilometres from Nowy Sacz.
When we enjoyed cycling we noticed these sweet cows:) They were visibly anxious because of our presence there, but after few minutes they went back to nibbling grass:)
We want to share with you this idyllic view:)

You can see the reflection of one of the tenements (you can see it here and here) on Jagiellonska Street. The photo was possible thanks to one of the shop windows - the window of the watchmaker (zegarmistrz) Dobrzanski:)

Wet lizard

The fountain with the lizard is in the 'Planty' park, just next to the blooming magnolia which was posted few days ago.
Other photos from the 'Planty' park you can see here.

The most expensive one

Today you can see at our blog one of the most expensive cars in the world (and for sure the most expensive one in Nowy Sacz;)). This Maybach belongs to local businessman, tycoon of Polish ice-cream market.
The photo was taken at Nowy Sacz's town square.

Magnolia at Planty

That's the center place in the 'Planty' park - blooming magnolia. We really regret that we can not send you the aroma of it through this post!:)
You can also see the magnolia more detail at our another blog - Macro Photos!

Spring in the park

This is the 'Planty' park. We posted this place few months ago, in a very snowy scenery. The photo convinces us, that it's good that we've alredy say "good bye" to the winter:)

April 17, 2009


This is one of the tenements in the centre of the town - just one minute from the town square.

April 16, 2009


Upholding the balcony is a tough work. These athletes (woman and man) also guard the entrance to one of the tenements on Jagiellonska Street (we called this building 'sunny optimism' - you can see it here and here).

The castle in Nowy Sacz. You can see other shots of it here.

Face of St. Margaret

St. Margaret's Basilica and the cloudless sky. Definitely they go together:)

Wet Monday

Today is the Wet Monday ('Lany Poniedzialek'), more about how this day looks like in Poland you can find here.
In the photo there is the fountain on Nowy Sacz's town square. On the left you can notice the townhall and the statue of the Pope John Paul II. In the background there is also the palm.

Happy Easter!

'Our' house

Walking around the town we found 'our' house:) If you look carefully you can see the two 'm' letters on the detail situated on the roof of the building:) The house is partly covered by some kind of plant - it will look great when it becomes green:)

This building is situated on Sienkiewicza Street (Henryk Sienkiewicz was Polish writer, he was honoured by the Nobel Prize in 1905).

From the back

Maybe you recognize it - it is the townhall of Nowy Sacz but captured from the back side:)

April 8, 2009


This is one of the public office (representing the Malopolian's voivodeship). It is situated on Jagiellonska Street (this part of the street which is open for the car traffic).

April 7, 2009


Is this a landing UFO? No, it is just the joke which sunset did to us:)

You can see the Saturday's view from one bank of Dunajec River to another:) It is the view on Helena (one of the districts of Nowy Sacz). You can see the spires of the church (we will show the photo of it soon:))

Half-price sale

Want to buy Nowy Sacz's Basilica of St. Margaret? That's a great chance - 50% discount:)
As you can see, in the photo there is just a reflection in the shop window:)

Palm Sunday

Today is the Palm Sunday. In the photo you can see the palm which is on the town square. Its height is about 25 metres and there are about 7,000 flowers on it.
We remember that when we were children there was the competition for the highest palm in some churches in Nowy Sacz:) Nowadays, such competition takes place for example in Lipnica Murowana (in the south of Poland) - some palms were even 30 metres high. In our climate palms for this Sunday are made mostly from flowers (also artificial ones), ribbons etc.

St. Casimir's bell tower

In today's photo there are the bell tower of the St. Casimir church and the Malopolian Culture Center 'Falcon' in the background. On the left you can also see fragment of the church.
The spring finally came to Nowy Sacz. Yesterday it was about 20°C!:)

Grinning Mr. Trabant

We met him in the town square of Nowy Sacz:). Similarly like he, we are also very happy because of the great weather:)
In the background there are tenements which are situated across from the townhall's front.

As we promised yesterday we show you one of many details on the facade of the yellow building on Narutowicza Street:) It is yellow (again) lizard:)

April Theme Day: the Bomb of the Yellow

This interesting tenement is situated on Narutowicza Street, near the St. Casimir's church. We posted it some time ago (here) but from another side - it is a corner building. The architecture of this building is full of details - we will show you them soon:)

And short note especially for Jacob - Narutowicza Street got its name from the first president of Poland after the I World War - Gabriel Narutowicz. He served the office just several days (11-16 December 1922). He was shot in National Gallery of Art 'Zacheta' in Warsaw. More information here.
