Some colours in rainy days

The weather in Nowy Sacz is terrible. It's raining all the time. This is why we want to show you something colourful:)
Today you can see the stained-glass window in the church of Saint Casimir. The stained-glass windows in this church were designed by nephew of famous painter Jan Matejko - Stefan Matejko. This one was made in 1912 in Cracow but during the II World War it was damaged. The renovation took place in 1952.

Cudowny! Naprawdę doskonałe ujęcie, mogę tylko pogratulować :)
Przyznam ze wstydem, że nie wiedziałam o tym, że mogę się spodziewać witrażu projektu Matejki.. Ten jest po prostu doskonały - piękny przykład secesji. Zgaduję, że pewnie powstał w pracowni witraży Żeleńskiego (brat słynnego Boya).
Gdyby jeszcze jakieś młodopolskie -secesyjne wzory witraży przykuły Waszą uwagę, to z przyjemnością zobaczę (najpierw na blogu, potem na pewno też 'na żywo').
Wydaje mi się, że ten witraż nie jest chyba umieszczony wysoko - bo inaczej, to nie jestem w stanie sobie wyobrazić, jak udało się go sfotografować pod tym kątem ;) Rewelacyjne zdjęcie!

It's beautiful! I just love stained glass windows.

So many beautiful buildings were destroyed during WWII (and many other wars, really). So sad.

Those are some spectacular colours. No wonder a glass window doesn't survive times of war.

Wonderful image of a grat window.
In the late 90's I spent a couple of hours in the workshop of an artisan glazier in Poznan. I bought some souvenir and was promptly invited for a tour of the lab. They were making and restoring these kind of windows for churches, hotels and private houses in Poland and Germany. It was a family shop and they were rightly proud of their work.

We have a really good time for this colour because the weather in Poland is so terrible... (don't forget that is summer) I can't stand it! Greetings from Bielsko:)

I know only too well the feeling that one must find bright and vibrant colors when the weather is dreary. Nice choice. Hope your weather improves soon.

To prawda -- miałem przejechać wycieczkowo przez Wasze miasto, ale chyba nic z tego nie będzie :(
(To znaczy chodzi mi o pogodę. A witraż robi wrażenie!)
