Climate:moderate, continental.

Four seanons; spring, summer, autumn ( fall) , winter.
Despite the fact that majority of Poland is lowland, the Polish landscape is varied.

Sport : football ( soccer) is the most popular sport with a rich history of international competion.




Silesia landmarks:
Jasna Gora Monastery in Czestochowa

Jasna Góra (latin: Clarus Mons) – sanctuary and Pauline Monastery in Częstochowa, located on Jasna Góra.

The complex is one of the most important sites of the worship of Our Lady and has for centuries been the heart of pilgrimage in Poland. It is home to the Icon of the Black Madonna of Częstochowa, as well as a collection of many other pieces of art, mostly sacral, presented as thanksgiving offerings by believers.


 Black Madonna  the most important painting for roman- Catholic here...
 At the weekend I put more pictures of Silesian landmarks.

  3. The ceiling in the last photo is so beautiful, especially the lighting.
    I'm so glad you have a blog now. I want to learn more about life in Poland. Maybe I will visit someday.
