Checked it myself today. You can access the highest one for 10 PLN. There are some 8-10 small windows up there which you can open by yourself. Pretty killer!

Over 50 archaeologists and metal detectorists surveyed the area of the Medieval Battle of Grunwald. The 1410 battle between an alliance of the Kingdom of Poland and the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, against the Teutonic Knights was a decisive clash that shifted the balance of power in Eastern Europe.



The international project involved participants from Denmark, Norway, United Kingdom and Poland. The wide area of the battle was surveyed since 2014 with use of metal detectors. The area scheduled for this year covered nearly 100 hectares. The explorers discovered over 150 objects, among which were arrow and bolt points, fragments of weaponry, Medieval belt buckles, elements of clothes and coins.









Basing on the research the experts managed to mark the West border of the battlefield, located near the present road connecting Grunwald and Łodwigowo. It also seems to confirm the thesis that it is the main area of the battle (East and South of the Grunwald village), and not the area located to the North-East, as repeated in Polish historiography. Continuation of the work is scheduled for future seasons.

Well, the seller is a seasoned businesswoman so there's that Interesting that she is selling part of her spa. Very doubtful someone would buy it for that price.

Cycling is one of the most eco-friendly ways to travel, and thanks to this solar-powered bike lane that glows in the dark, it just got even moreso.



The luminous blue cycling strip, which can be found near Lidzbark Warminski in the north of Poland, was created by TPA Instytut Badań Technicznych Sp. z o.o. It’s made from a synthetic material that can give out light for up to ten hours at a time once charged by the sun throughout the day. Although the concept was inspired by Studio Roosegaarde’s Starry Night bike lane in the Netherlands, the technology is quite different as the Dutch version uses LEDs whereas this one is entirely dependent upon solar power. It’s still in the testing phase at the moment, but let’s hope that this bright idea will be implemented in other countries in the very near future.

Poland is to press ahead with building a new canal to bypass a stretch of land and water controlled by Russia. The canal will cut through a narrow strip of land separating the Vistula Lagoon in the north-east of Poland and the Baltic Sea.

At the moment all maritime traffic from the Polish port of Elblag has to go through Russian controlled waters to reach the Baltic.

Work on the ú180million project, which will be 5,881 yards long and 87 yards wide, should start in 2018 and be completed by 2022.

Along with improving Polish security the government hopes the canal will boost the economy in north-eastern Poland by bringing investment and creating jobs.

A good idea from a Polish perspective. But a drawbridge? Really? Make a proper, high bridge that ships could run under.
