Poznan Cathedral

Poznan (Poznań) was one of the cities I had been planning on visiting for a while.  What I hadn’t realised was the fact that the cathedral is on an island, which is aptly known as Cathedral Island or Ostrów Tumski in Polish.  As that seemed a little unusual to me at the time, with the cathedral’s history, …

Niedzica Castle, Southern Poland

Last weekend, I headed off on an adventure to see what I could find locally.  I didn’t have to travel far to come across, yes, you’ve guessed it, a castle.  It’s been a while since I wrote about a castle, hasn’t it?  The last one was Malbork, which is at the opposite end of the country.  As …

The Fencer Fountain & Gnomes of Wroclaw

If you’ve heard about Wroclaw (pronounced Vroswav), you’ll probably know about the gnomes that inhabit the city.  I found out about them from a friend in the UK.  She knows I like quirky things, and thought it would be right up my street.  She was right, of course.  So, having been there and being as it is Friday, …
