The Castle in Baranów Sandomierski, Poland

A visit to the castle is an ideal one-day trip (unless you live far, far away, that is;-) Well, what I mean is that one can enjoy the place fully in one day only. Nevertheless, it really is worth seeing. The sixteenth-century castle, its most famous owners having been the Leszczynski family, is a real jewel.

The castle has an inner courtyard with an exceptional staircase roofed with what resembles an ancient Japanese helmet or something.

The castle in Lancut, Poland

If you happen to be in Poland, it is quite a good idea to visit the castle in Lancut. You can see it inside with a special guide and it's rather nice with all its suite of rooms, the Japanese-style suite, the small concert hall or the grand ballroom.

Mare Verticale in Venice, Italy

One day we decided to experience the green side of Venice. We learnt that there are two quite big parks in Venice - Parco delle Rimembranze and Giardini Pubblici. While walking along the latter one we encountered a strange sight. A long, vertical structure in a shape of a boat was rising before our eyes right, as it seemed, from the water of the lagoon. What on earth was it?

Treeless Venice?

Somebody had told us once (or we had read it somewhere) that Venice is nothing more than buildings and water. To see a tree there is something unique.

Thus mentally prepared off we went to explore the treeless Venice.

I must say that what we saw shocked us. Was that someone completely blind or something? Or maybe all he had achieved in Venice was to visit St. Mark's Square and go back inland?
