Black Madonna of Częstochowa

The Black Madonna of Częstochowa (Czarna Madonna or Matka Boska Częstochowska in Polish) is a holy icon of the Virgin Mary, that is both Poland's holiest relic, and one of the country's national symbols. It is placed in Jasna Góra Monastery (Polish: Jasna Góra, English: Bright Hill) in a Pauline Fathers monastery in the City of Częstochowa. The monastery has been a pilgrimage destination for hundreds of years. Częstochowa is regarded as the most popular shrine in Poland, with a pilgrimage made there every year by many Polish Catholics, specially for August 15 - the Assumption of Virgin Mary.

Solidarity Union

Solidarity (Polish: Solidarność); full name: Independent Self-governing Trade Union "Solidarity" - a Polish trade union federation founded in September 1980 at the Gdańsk Shipyard, and originally led by Lech Wałęsa. It was the first non-communist trade union in a communist country. In the 1980s it constituted a broad anti-communist social movement. The government attempted to destroy the union with the martial law of 1981 and several years of repressions, but in the end it had to start negotiating with the union. The Round-Table Talks between the weakened government and Solidarity opposition led to semi-free elections in 1989. By the end of August a Solidarity-led coalition government was formed and in December Wałęsa was elected President of Poland.

Amber - the Gold of Baltic Sea

The Baltic region contains the largest known deposit of amber, with about 80% of the world's known amber found here. Amber deposits range between 35 to 40 million years old. The crafting of amber has been big business in Poland since medieval times. The bustling Baltic port city of Gdansk played a key role in this. Gdansk had a reputation in Europe for its superb artisans products, and the city created some of the finest furniture and jewellery in Europe. Polish King Kazimierz Jagiellonczyk enhanced the rights of Gdansk's amber craftsmen in 1477 by allowing them to form their own guild. Some of the treasures from the Renaissance and Baroque eras can still be found in the treasuries of the Royal Castle and Cathedral at Wawel, not least the venerable 'hobbler' goblet, which was designed by none other than King Sigismund himself.

White Storks' nests

Poland is the kingdom of White Stork. There is no other country with more stork residents per square kilometre. As indicated by the latest statistics, there are 52,500 stork couples nesting in Poland every year (out of 160 thousand living all over the world). Moreover, every year almost 100 thousand young birds hatch and are brought up in Poland (30 % of the World’s White Stork population). Thus, every third stork is Polish ! Most of them live by rivers and lakes in Warmia, Mazury Lake District and Podlasie - east of the country. Record goes to Zywkowo village in Mazury Lake District, where 45 couples decided to set for summer and autumn. Since the village was open to tourists in 1999, the place has been visited by about 2 thousand people from all over the world.

Polish 'Arabian Horses' breeding

Poland is famous for the greatest number of horses in Europe. Our breeds are appreciated around the whole world. The most wanted ones are Arabian horses, but the interest in the funny little mountain horses called “Hucul” or small ‘Konik Polski’ is on the rise as well. A Polish saying is “The greatest joy in life is on a horseback”. Horse riding fans have no doubts about its authenticity. More and more people have been finding that out recently. You can find more than a dozen studs in every big city and the equestrian centres are spread all over the country. Tourists often choose to stay on farms with studs or to take part in weekly riding courses with the instructors. Hippocrates’ 2000 year old praise about horses and the positive impact of horse riding on a person’s health, have again stirred people’s imagination.
