Greetings from Jelenia Gora in Poland

When I told my Polish friends that I was going to Jelenia Gora for a month, the first thing they asked me was: “But what are you going to do there?”

I always find it interesting how people judge places: small and unknown (read: boring) and big and well-known (read: interesting). Now, I don’t function that way.

So, why Jelenia Gora? This is how I see it:

  1. It’s colorful and cute…

2) The historical center was spared the destruction of WWII, which is quite rare in Poland.

3) There are many interesting details if you just look up…

4) …or around…

5) And.. it’s surrounded by the most beautiful nature (I’ll tell you more about it in my next posts)

In any case, we really like it here…

  1. “I always find it interesting how people judge places: small and unknown (read: boring) and big and well-known (read: interesting)”

    Absolutely true. Most people look for and appreciate the well known places, the perfect shops, the perfect restaurants, the perfect transports, etc. but that way they often miss the authenticity and the true essence of smaller and beautiful places.

    Nice pics and place !! 🙂
