Bear news

Short video of the 2-3 year old bear – seen here at the school in Gołkowice Górne, but also spotted in Stary Sącz.

Stary is “old” as Nowy is “new. Gołkowice Górne is about 15km south-west of Nowy Sącz, Stary Sącz a bit closer.

Niedzica Castle

Kamila, a friend of ours posted this picture in Facebook. I wanted to share it with you.


The castle is on Lake Czorstyn, a reservoir just a little ways from the Dunajec Gorge, on the road to Zakopane. At the lake there are the ruins of another castle, watersports and a water taxi and the dam, which offers tours for anyone interested.

For anyone driving to Zakopane, or indeed from Zak, a stop at the lake plus a ride down the river on the rafts would be a nice way to spend some time!
