Łazienkowski Park in Warsaw is a place well known amongst Poles. Everyone heard of it at least once in school. This 76 hectare park and palace complex lies in the Warsaw center and was designed in XVIII century. It looks gorgeous in spring with juicy green trees and bushes and many flowers in different parts of the park. Hungry after winter, red squirrels are all over the place looking for snacks. Below you can see Chopin's statue and an old Orangery.
Here are some pics from my short hiking trip to the Great Owl (polish "Wielka Sowa"). When you start from Przełęcz Walimska it's really easy to get to the top (which is 1014 metres in altitude). You can see the path in pink colour.
As you can see below, the weather was sunny and warm (well.. for the autumn), but also windy and partially foggy which gave the nice touch to some of the photos. Enjoy! :)
This weekend, on Saturday, I took a quick trip to the Table Mountains, to Szczeliniec Wielki. Table Mountains is the region I like very much. Peaks are not very high, so you don't have to be in a very good shape to climb them. Forest region is magical with all the rocks and paths between them. This was my third time there. I actually hoped for a little more cloudy weather, but the day turned out to be quite sunny and warm, so no foggy photos that day. ;)
To see this view, you need to climb 665 stairs, but it's definitely worth it. Beautiful both summer and winter (though climbing there in winter can be quite dangerous). The path starts in village Karłów, where you can park your car, and is about 5km long.
Firstly you just climb stairs in the forest (with some rocks for company) to reach height, then you walk more between rocks, sometimes the path gets very narrow, so I wouldn't advise it for someone with claustrophobia. Good boots are a "nice to have" thing because even during summer, the moisture from the rocks is quite strong so path is always wet somewhere.
