[Poland] - Podlasie, North-East part of the country

Hello!
I would like to show you some of the pictures from my last holidays in Podlasie. This area might not be spectacular in terms of architecture, I would even say that it might look a bit poor to some of you. But what it offers is amazing landscapes and untouched nature. First of all a map which shows where Podlasie is:



So now let's move on to pictures!

We will start in Mazowsze, this village is famous for being a place where one of the most popular TV series were shot. Itself not really interesting







And now Podlasie. This is a small town called Drohiczyn, one of the historic capitals of the region.



















The most holly place for Orthodox in Poland, Grabarka

One more picture from Supraśl



Białystok - Warszawa road





These roads, no matter how they look like, are really good. You can drive on them up to 50 km/h and still you don't feel as if it was any kind of dirt road. As Podlasie is rather sparsely populated you can find roads like these in some places.

I've always wanted to visit this part of Poland. Personally I like the architecture- the cream colors (not so industrialized) and picturesque huts that you can only find in Poland, Ukraine and other parts of eastern Europe.
