Malicious Winter

Dear friends, you were right. No more than yesterday we wrote that there is no winter in Nowy Sacz and we have beaufitul weather. And today... As you can see... The winter came. Dear winter, if you read this, please, you should know that you are extremely malicious creature:)
In the photo there is a small park near the Railway Station.

A snowless winter at Konarskiego Street

In the south of Poland where we live there is usually a lot of snow and generally freeze weather in the middle of December. But this year the weather is different. There is no snow at all and the sun is still with us:) Maybe winter forgot about us? Dear Winter, if you read this, please, do not come:)

Colourful hand

Yesterday we presented the coat of arms of Nowy Sacz. Today we would like to show you the commercial sign of Nowy Sacz. It is placed on gadgets which should advertise our town (for example T-shirts, ballpens, cups etc.) and as you can see - also on bus:)
The white mark in the middle of the hand is a symbol of the townhall. The shape of the hand was chosen because the town square and surrounding streets have similar shape from the air (on aerial photos).
There was a huge discussion about this sign in Nowy Sacz. One catholic association stated that the sign is inspired by satanic movements and demanded from the local authorities to withdraw this project. Finally, the sign is in use. We are curious if you like it.

Gold Polish Autumn

The weather in the autumn this year is really beautiful - there are many of warm sunny days. We call such weather 'the Gold Polish Autumn' (złota polska jesień):) But there are also some disadvantages of such weather - some people (especially in villages in the neighbourhood) have problem with access to water because there was little rain in the autumn this year.

Cafe Kawka

In the Planty park you can not only walk but also drink some coffee or tea in 'Cafe Kawka'. There are usually many people - we had to wait for the right moment to take this photo (when there were not so much people). The name 'Kawka' is in Polish play of words which mean: a small coffee and a bird - jackdaw.

In the fog everything is mysterious. Today there was mist in the morning but it appeared again about 3 p.m. so in a quite strange time for fog:)
