Fences around the world

Storks in the field.

16th August 2017

Storks walk in the fields so it means it would be a hot weather for a while. Storks have great senses so they perfectly know when to leave Poland and go to Africa.

The Assumption of Mary, or the Day of Assumption, is an annual public holiday in Poland on August 15. It is also Polish Army Day as it is connected with the anniversary of the Battle of Warsaw in 1920.

What Do People Do?

Many people in Poland attend church masses on the Day of Assumption. A number of churches have services to remember Polish soldiers who died fighting for their country. Gatherings take place at some cemeteries where readings are made in honor of dead soldiers. Another ceremonious event on August 15 is the Change of Guards near the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Warsaw.
The Sanctuary of Jasna Góra in Czestochowa is a major destination point for pilgrims throughout and beyond Poland. Many pilgrims pray and sing while walking hundreds of kilometers for days.

Public Life

The Day of Assumption is an official public holiday in Poland, so schools, banks, government offices and most private businesses are closed. There is a trade prohibition on public holidays in Poland. People intending to travel via public transport during public holidays must check with the public transit authorities on any changes to time schedules.


The Day of Assumption is connected to the anniversary of the Battle of Warsaw, fought from August 12-25 in 1920, during the war between the Poles and the Bolsheviks. This battle was considered a breakthrough battle – it decided not only Poland’s independence but it also blocked the spread of communism and Soviet totalitarianism in Europe during the 1920s. August 15 also honors the Catholic belief that God assumed the Virgin Mary into Heaven following her death. It is the principal feast day of the Virgin Mother.

The huge house

13th August 2017

This huge mansion is located near my summer house. Every day I admire it. As I know a young couple with 2 children live there. It looks impressie but I think maintaining it especially in the winter is not easy and cheap one..

Would like to live that house. 
In my opinion is too big for me and expensive one.

It is an old church which was built in 1892-93. I sometimes visited this church when I was a student in high school which is located  opposite.
