It was announced last week that Gdansk has been chosen to host the 2020 European Scout Jamboree which is expected to attract 25,000 scouts from all over Europe to Sobieszewo Island just outside the city.
Welcome to Warsaw and the 101st edition of Warsaw In Your Pocket! Autumn is in the air and the streets are covered in leaves, squirrels are frantically preparing for winter and the streets are bustling with student chatter as the academic year gets under way.
Having explored modern Warsaw using our Warsaw In Your Pocket issue #100 and reading about the changes it has undergone, do you ever wonder how the city once looked before World War II? Make sure to visit the Miniature Park and take a peek of the past. But be quick as, unfortunately, the museum is set to close by the end of this month on 30/09/17!
July 2017 saw Gdansk visited by probably the most famous royalty on the planet when the UK’s Prince William and Princess Catherine visited the city as part of a two-day visit to the country.
The Tri-city offers plenty of things to see, visit, eat and drink but what about to do? We joined up with a group of other visitors to try our hands at making pierogi – Polish dumplings and discovered that we can cook (with a bit of expert supervision) and have a bit of fun.
The main thread running through this year’s 30th edition of the festival has been Ray Bradbury’s dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451, originally published in 1953. In his futuristic vision, Bradbury imagined a world without books, a world in which all forms of literature, art, philosophy as well as all individual, independent and liberal thinking, feeling and acquisition of knowledge are banned.
