Winter In Poland

Winter in Poland is white. The snow rests on naked trees creating a spectacular view, a true inspiration to an artistic soul. The temperature goes down to minus Celsius degrees. People dress so warm, that they become barely visible. Unidentified moving objects. They head home fast to rest in their heated houses, where they’d drink several tea’s. Poles drink a lot of tea.

Winter in Poland is gray. Full of sadness. And of darkness. A sunny day is a rare friend. So people seem more sad. And more gray.

Winter in Poland is finally bright. Children go out to sleigh and giggle the whole way, from the top of the mountain to its’ very bottom. Snowmen observe them from every corner, and laugh along with their big, rounded tummies.

What’s winter like where you live?

  1. the first photo is wonderful, love the lighting!
    winter in austria is almost the same, mostly very cold and grey, especially in vienna. but winter around the countryside or the alps is just great🙂

    • I’m so glad you do! I like it very much as well. It’s so comforting to look at it.
      Then again… it makes me remember the bus trip where I took it from. It was a nice journey, but the heating of the bus was broken and it was absolutely freezing cold inside! I barely felt anything once I finally arrived to my destination!

      I’ve been once to Vienna, although in summertime. It’s beautiful! But the Alps in Winter must look stunning!

      • vienna is beautiful indeed, i am happy you liked it🙂 i love it in spring and in autumn, in summer it is too hot and in winter too grey😉
        yeah, the mountains are fantastic in winter, austrian people love snowboarding and skiing there. unfortunately i couldn’t find the time this winter to go snowboarding….
        i wish you a wonderful day🙂

      • I’m not surprised you love snowboarding and skiing! With such mountains you have no choice!;) So you’re a snowboarder. That’s really cool!

        Thanks for the wishes & same to you, Evelyn!🙂

  2. So beautiful and peaceful! Winter is quite gray, but when we are rewarded with sun you see everyone smiling (at least on the bus where it’s warm) stay positive and drink lots of happy-tea😉

  3. I love winter , love cold weather! and specially getting warm when I get to the bus or train or a coffee shop!❤
    Where I was born is serounded by mountains and on winter we had deep deep snow ,coooold weather , but shining for me ! Specially when the next day was a sunny day , snow was shining as diamond everywhere!
    Now where I live is far far from my homeland and near the sea😃 So no more snow ,not so cold! I really miss that old days❤ Here maybe only 2 times we had snow ,just little ,but still it’s shining for me ( may be only for me!!!!!😃)

    • Oh yes, anything warm in winter is much appreciated!!😀

      Wow, the place where you were born sounds amazing! I’d love to wake up to such bright view! Where do you come from?
      You live in France now, right? I understand you. I also feel a big difference when it comes to living in Catalonia. Snow is very rare there too. But I don’t complain, cause almost every day is sunny! I guess we just can’t have everything😉.

  4. Winter in Romania is pretty much the same. It’s cold and grey, it’s quiet and it’s time to stay in and have a moment of intimacy and solitude and introspection.

    Beautiful photos – they remind me of my childhood.
    ❤ Have a great day!

    • It would be really wonderful if everyone would actually have those moments of intimacy, solitude and introspection!

      I’m glad to hear these photos bring you back childhood memories, ’cause that’s always a sweet thought🙂.

      A great day to you too!:)

  5. I remember my winter days in A’dam… ugghhh, they were the saddest of all, but then I learned how to buffer all the sad surrounding then I started to enjoy it little by little.

    • Amsterdam? Really? I didn’t think it could be ever sad there… The architecture is so nice & colorful that the gray winter days seem to not have much to say when it comes to having a good mood. That’s very interesting! So I won’t travel to A’dam in Winter…;)
