The other day a few of the wives from my husbands work and I got together and were off to another beautiful walk doing a city tour of the old town area of Bydgoszcz. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate like we were hoping for but luckily we were able to sneak into a few buildings to get out of the rain.
Time to get the tour started.
All of us learning about the river and the history that goes with it.
Yes, we have what I call “gypsies” here who beg for money. Some of which are very rude.
The main city post office. Absolutely a beautiful building.
The main city hall that used to be a Jesusit school
More of the old city center.
Getting the inside scoop of many of the different buildings.
Learning about the oldest church here in town.
The wonderfully wood carved door going into the church.
Can someone tell me why in the last almost 2 years I have never stopped and looked inside this church? It is beautiful!
Love this art work!
Why is the organ area always so beautiful in churches?
Sorry for the blurry picture but I love how small this world is. This lady was following our group so here 2 of the ladies ask her who she is just in case she was a new wife that none of us had meet before. She was visiting Bydgoszcz from Russia and these ladies are from Italy and Germany and so luckly ‘Google translate” was the saving grace to figure out what everyone was saying.
Here we are learning about the old main shopping street here in town, “Long Street.”
Off to Mill Island part of town.
One of the many bridges here in town.
I do not think I would want that job.
We did a quick walk through the money museum.
The archaeology museum.
Just one of the many interesting exhibits in the museum.
I can imagine how long it would take to carve this out of wood.
Then we headed down to the basement to try some local Polish food.
Duck pate. Not bad but something I do not think I would eat everyday.
Poorman’s pancake is what this translated too with homemade plum jam. This was good!
These are potatoes with a cheese spread. This is AMAZING! I had this when we were in Poznan at a restaurant, I guess I need to figure out the recipe.
Of course when you get this many women together there is going to be talking!
I can’t speak for the rest of the ladies but I had a great time learning more about the city that is my new home and as well as tasting some old traditional Polish food.
What is your favorite city to explore? Me, Venice, Italy is my top one but Brugge, Belgium is a right up there too!
