Museum of Croatian Archeological Monuments / Croatia

Museum of Croatian Archeological Monuments in Split. When I saw it the first time I thought, “oh, they have a cool contemporary buildings here”. Clean building with horizontal glazing, I will never thought that was built in 1976. The project was created in 1968, designed by an architect from Zagreb Mladen Kauzlarić. Exhibit...

If you are running a home business or just need a mini home office – here are inspirations for you. Some people need only piece of place in diningroom or on the coffee table.

Here are some inspirations of places to work at home. I wonder if erase Mac computers these photos would also be so pretty :)

Nürnberg

Nürnberg

It is the first post for quite some time (more than a year!) and the first trip with a Litlle A. Thanks to her, sightseeing is much better. We choose things both interesting for us and for the little infant. Although to be honest,  her even fascinates shadow on the wall or an ant crawling on the sidewalk. Little A. seems to admire every little thing. That’s what I’m learning from her, more laughts and joy in every minute of my life. Thanks God that there are children in the world!

Nuremberg, the German city in Bavaria, located on the river Pegnitz. Counts a little more than half a million inhabitants. The city was the best preserved of the medieval period until the allies bombing, was rebuilt after the war. In the 30s of the twentieth century Nuremberg became the center of the Nazi movement, in 1934 Zeppenlinfield Arena was built, the project of Hitler’s architect, Albert Speer. Arena is really large, preserved are stairs on which people run and training  like Rocky Balboa, and a balcony from Hitler had spoken. Near the Arena, there is a second building – Congress Hall (Kongresshalle), was never completed, but it is so far the most monumental building of the Nazi period. From a distance it resembles the Roman Colosseum, now in its north wing is the Documentation Centre Nazi Party (Dokumentationszentrum Reichsparteitagsgelände). Here you will find more information. Unfortunately, we ran out of time to go in, so nothing more I can write.

Worth seeing main attraction of the city castle (Kaiserburg). I also recommend the viewing terrace, you can see a magnificent panorama of the city from there. The views are best while sipping a cup of tea or coffee from a thermos.

City tour with the baby in a sling for sure is much easier. I do not recommend touring with a pram, unless you like that sort of interest. Person learns from his mistakes…

An important attraction, which you should not miss are  imbissstand, you’ll find there Nürnberger Rostbratwürste so Nuremberg grilled sausages. Love it! I did not do their pictures because I ate them too fast.

Museums, visited two Neues Museum (Staatliches Museum für Neue Kunst und Design Museum) and Toy Museum (Spielzeugmuseum). The first I will show in a separate post, I have a lot of pictures.

To the Spielzeugmuseum we went because of the Little A. Of course she was fascinated, as always . The entrance to the museum does not look very interesting, post-modern facade and dirt. The interior is also uninteresting, but the most important exhibits were there! Wonderful! Yes, in the museum exhibits, such a discovery could write only an architect …

I can honestly say that the Neues Museum in comparison  is the boredom! Once craftsmen had (supposedly) low gear, and were able to conjure up a lot more interesting toys than now. Wooden figurines, houses and boxes of pads were really lovely. The aesthetics of those times was pretty. In the last room were present toys. Plastics, plastics and plastic again (but Lego is cool). It was worth the walk to the end, watching all the exhibits, in each of us came back something from childhood, most showed us the last window. The background of cabinets was glazed, behind which were crammed plastic toys, in front of it placed a black and white photo of children sitting in a circle and playing … with each other. Because toys does not make fun, but our imagination. We, the adults probably, forgot about it. So I’m going to play and remember.

Interior #18 / Geszeft

As the wife of a Silesian man  I am forced  to show and admire at the shop&café  Geszeft. This is a place where are promoted Silesian brands and designers. Here you can buy a book about Silesia, architecture, view a mini fashion show and enjoy probably a delicious coffee. It always seems to me that in such a nice place coffee is excellent.

Shop website: Geszeft

Interior design: of course Silesian architects Joanna Wołoszyn & Daria Barnaś

Seaman Lighthouse in Split

Seaman Lighthouse in Split

Split Lighthouse 1
Recently in Poland we have more sun than snow, think of that a year ago I was in Split, and there was more sun than … the sun. I miss it very much, so today I have retrieved the archive photos of last year. This view can be seen from the modernist lighthouse. Of course, I am probably one of the few people who like this tower.
Split Lighthouse 2
This beautiful place in Split we found looking for a place to drink beers over the sea. I have no idea why, but the beer under the cliff tastes best in the world! The place is also unique for this reason that you can see how the agaves bloom and it blooms once in a lifetime and more reminiscent a tree than a flower. Supposedly it is a rare phenomenon!
Now something about the lighthouse. It was designed by Ivan Carić in 1958. The concrete tower measures 35.5 meters in height with a 1.8mx4.0m rectangular ground plan, wider part of the lighthouse is perforated by glass round elements. At the top there is a light that has a range of 17 nautical miles. During the night glass elements reflected light from lighthouse, which gives an amazing effect. Probably this illusion was also supported by the Croatian beer …. ;)
