BTW Polish is almost perfectly phonetic, so you can learn sounds of 32 letters (we have a few additional) and 8 multi-letter combinations like "sz" and "cz" (40 sounds total) and you know how to pronounce any Polish word.

Practice makes master Besides, one can ask any German, how "Stettin" is pronounced in German (different than in English). "Szczecin" is nearly the same

That's right. And one more thing: everybody who learns Polish have to firstly learn by heart over 30 letters of Latin alphabet which are coded in Polish differently than in English.

Photos from my short trip to Poznań...


Old Market Square (reconstructed after WW2 according to Zbigniew Zieliński plan)






The Psalmodists' House (built by Jan Lubrański) and Gothic Church of the Most Holy Virgin Mary

* Archaeological work carried out since 1999 has uncovered the remains of the original ducal palace and chapel (the oldest known place of Christian worship in Poland) on the site now occupied by the church.

The Archcathedral Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul in Poznań










The following rulers of Poland are buried in the cathedral:
992 - Mieszko I
1025 - Bolesław I Chrobry
1034 - Mieszko II
1058 - Casimir the Restorer
1296 - Przemysł II

Also, in the cathedral you'll find great examples of Polish Renaissance sepulchral art (tombstones of Wawrzyniec Goślicki, Sebastian Branicki, Łukasz Kościelecki, Górka family, Benedykt Izdbieński, Powodowski family, Jakub Prądzewski, and many more)...






Stay tuned...I will add more photos from my short stay in Poznań and Kraków soon.

That's a good question. Unfortunately, I never had a chance to visit Wroclaw. Probably (actually I'm almost sure) it's not as nice as Krakow, Lwow and Wilno, because it was completely destroyed during WW2 and only small parts of historic site have been rebuilt. I could be wrong on that one, I don't know. To my knowledge, Wroclaw (due to the enormous war damage) lacks historic narrow cobblestone alleys and rich interiors.

The Medieval streets that lead to the Market Square in Wroclaw Old Town...






Interior of Gothic St. Adalbert's Church in Wroclaw


Interior of Gothic Corpus Christi Church in Wroclaw


PS. There will be more photos from beautiful Krakow later today
