Beautiful photos of autumn in Wrocław - one of my favorite cities in Poland 🍁
Autumn in Wroclaw
By Janusz Krzeszowski
This beautiful city, called the "Polish Venice" is surrounded with canals and is dotted with more than 120 bridges that link 12 wonderful islands (among which the Cathedral island).
You will be seduced by the incredible charm of Wroclaw, the Market Square "Rynek", its two Town Halls, the Salt Market Square, the Flower Market, the beautiful University, the covered market, the fine architecture of the Centeniall Hall, the botanical garden.
You fancy a good lunch ? Have a break at "Piwnica Świdnicka": it is the oldest restaurant in the world! Walk around in "Ostrów Tumski", the oldest part of Wroclaw and fall under the spell of the historical city.
Take a closer look and watch carefully : Wroclaw is dotted with emblematic dwarves. They are all different! Try to find them all: there are 350 of them in the city and there are new ones every year!
Do not miss the opportunity to discover the best of Wroclaw, its inhabitants! They are warm and friendly and will share their love for their city and its hidden gems.
Wroclaw is THE European best destination 2018!

Babciny fartuch ...
Fartuch ma chronić ubranie pod spodem, babcia zawsze miała kilka. Fartuch nosi się również dlatego, że łatwiej było wyprać fartuchy niż sukienki i na fartuszki zużywano mniej materiału. Ale wraz z tym, służył jako jedna łapka do usuwania gorącej patelni z pieca.
To było cudowne i bardzo praktyczne do suszenia dziecięcych łez. Do kurnika, fartuszek był używany do noszenia jajek.
Gdy przybyli goście, ten fartuch były idealną kryjówką dla nieśmiałych dzieci..
Te stare fartuchy wytarły wiele spoconych brwi, pochylonych nad gorącym piecem w upalne dni .
Z ogrodu przynosiła wszelkiego rodzaju warzywa.
Jesienią, fartuszek był pełny jabłek, które spadły z drzewa.
Kiedy kolacja była gotowa, babcia wychodziła na ganek, pomachała jedną ręką a druga była w kieszeni magicznego fartuszka, w którym zawsze był jakiś cukiereczek, a mężczyźni wiedzieli, że to czas, aby przyjść z pola na kolację.
To będzie długi czas, zanim ktoś wymyśli coś, co zastąpi fartuch, który ma wiele wspomnień ......... ❤😊🍎🍐🍏🍅🍬💕

Autumn, Poland, and pickles...all good things!
Time for Autumn pickles and village life
In beautiful images by: Kamila Rosińska https://www.facebook.com/ArtRosinska/
Pickles are a very important ingredient in Polish cuisine, as well as in that of other countries in Central and Eastern Europe.
First one is Kapusta kiszona (sauerkraut).
Sauerkraut is made of shredded cabbage, which after salting is subjected to fermentation, resulting in a particular sour taste. It is possible to eat the sauerkraut 'in raw'. For example it can be served as salad with some meat dishes. However, in Poland (in general) it is often used as ingredient in some dishes – like bigos, croquettes or mushroom-cabbage pierogi.
Ogorki kiszone – Polish dill pickle – it is another one of the great things in Polish cuisine. The name 'ogorki kiszone' is usually translated into English as 'dill pickles', but you can also call them 'sour cucumbers', since a strong, sour taste is characteristic of them. It is sad, but you can't buy real, high quality Polish dill pickles in groceries, neither in US or UK, and not even in Poland. The majority of sour cucumbers available in shops is simply not tasty and in order to experience the real taste, one should go to Poland and try homemade dill pickles. And such homemade dill pickles are made from soil-grown cucumbers which are put into jars. Beds of dill, roots of horseradish and some cloves of garlic are then added. Other spices sometimes used are: bay leaves, grains of mustard and pepper, as well as cherry leaves, currant, grapes or oak. We pour water over the integrity, salt and shelf the jars for a few weeks.
Poles use dill pickles as an appetizers with many dishes. Polish dill pickles constitute a basic ingredient of cucumber soup and may be used as the addition to potatoes, sandwiches or as an ingredient of salads. Sometimes they are used as an appetizer for vodka and herring served in oil and onion.

🍁Polish autumn 🍂
by Maciej Dzwigala
* most photos taken in Ojcow National Park and Krakow surroundings (Srebrna Gora, Ojcow)
The Ojców National Park is located in the southern part of Poland, in the Malopolskie Voivodehsip, around 15km from Krakow, the former capital of Poland.
The area of the park is covered with picturesque limestone formations, which sometimes assume fancy shapes, like the monadnock, an isolated rock hill, called the Hercules' Club. The area is full of gorges up to 100 metres deep with a flat bottom and steep, often vertical sides. It also includes many valleys and ravines sculptured by water. Sandstone arches at the end of ravines are a characteristic rock formation of the Ojców National Park. The most famous of them is the Krakow's Gate, through which the trade route from Krakow to Silesia used to run.
In the territory of the park, nearly 400 caves have been discovered, but experts suspect that there may be even 700 of them. The most famous one is the King Łokietek Cave, which is open to visitors. Its name originates from a legend about Polish King Władysław the Elbow-high [in Polish: Łokietek], who, it is claimed, sought cover from his enemy within the cave. The Ciemna [Dark] Cave can also be visited (but only with a guide).
The park also features the remains of the medieval castle in Ojców, constructed by Polish King Casimir the Great in the 14th century. This historical building is a part of the medieval system of fortifications consisting of more than ten castles and fortresses, which are now called the Trail of the Eagles' Nests. The name refers to the location of the castles, many of which nestle on top of rocks that are up to 30 metres high. This chain of fortifications also includes the castle in Pieskowa Skała, which has now taken the form of a stately Renaissance-era residence. It houses a museum, which is a regional branch of the Wawel Royal Castle National Art Collection. poland.pl

Delicious! Has anyone been mushroom hunting?
Wild mushroom soup.
Read full recipe at travel.lovePoland Magazine: https://www.yumpu.com/en/document/view/64152573/travel-lovepoland-magazine-september-2020
It is our favourite soup which you can cook from fresh, frozen or dried wild, forest mushrooms. It smells wonderful and it is very filling. Mushroom soup is usually served on Christmas Eve, but it is a great idea for other seasons, especially for autumn chills. Most often it is prepared with pasta, but you can also serve it with potatoes. ou can cook this mushroom soup from fresh, frozen or dried mushrooms:
Fresh mushrooms: To make mushroom soup, you need 600 grams of forest mushrooms. These can include boletus, bay boletes, slippery jacks... If you are going to cook slippery jacks, remember that their caps need to be peeled. Rinse the mushrooms quickly and clean them. Cut them into smaller pieces.
Frozen mushrooms: 600 grams of frozen mushrooms should be defrosted naturally, then pour off any melted glaze and slice the mushrooms in the same way as the fresh ones.
Dried mushrooms: In the recipe, I suggest using up to 100 grams of dried mushrooms. Place the dried mushrooms in a narrow vessel and pour 500 ml of cold water. Cover with a lid and set aside to soak, preferably overnight.
Start heating a medium-sized pan. Place two tablespoons of delicate olive oil on it, or add vegetable oil (rice or grape seed) and two tablespoons of clarified butter (keep the third tablespoon for the roux).
Peel the large onion and chop it finely. Put in the pan. After 5 minutes of frying, also add three peeled and sliced garlic cloves. Immediately put all the mushrooms, cut into smaller pieces, into the pan. Fry all of these for 20 minutes. After this time, add a handful of chopped dill and a flat teaspoon of salt and pepper. Stir and take the pan off the heat.
Tip: In the case of dried mushrooms, only the mushrooms are put into the pan (without the soaking water. Save the water for later.) If necessary, cut the mushrooms into smaller pieces in advance.
While the onions with mushrooms are frying in the pan, you can start preparing the soup in a pot. Pour a litre i.e. four glasses of vegetable stock into a medium sized pot. This is the most common type of broth for this soup that I use. It is the least greasy. It is worth noting, however, that the mushroom soup also goes well with poultry and even beef broth.
Add peeled and diced carrots and potatoes to the boiling broth. Cook the soup on low (with the lid on) for 15 minutes. After this time, add the entire contents of the pan and a teaspoon of marjoram to the pot. After five minutes of cooking, it is time for the last stage - gentle whitening and thickening of the mushroom soup.
In the pan where you fried the mushrooms, put a tablespoon of butter, two tablespoons of thin soup from the pot and a tablespoon of wheat flour. Set the burner to low and mix everything until the flour is perfectly mixed with the butter and soup and starts foaming. Add also three tablespoons of 30% cream. Pour it all into a pot with a slightly simmering soup. After two minutes of cooking, you can turn off the heat.
Mushroom soup can also be whitened with 18% sour cream. In this case, be very careful not to let the cream boil over. It needs to be tempered by pouring a large amount of soup from the pot into a glass with cream. Pour the tempered cream very slowly into the soup pot. If you prefer mushroom soup with noodles, then skip the potatoes in the ingredients. Then cook about 100-150 grams of shell pasta or small twigs separately. Add the cooked pasta to the soup already poured on the plates.
