Proudly Poland

Proudly Poland
2 Comments / 4 months ago

When I decided to set off for my 3 months Eastern Europe trip in January 2018, people asked me why? "It's winter there, you can't do anything with that weather". They were right, it was during the time when the "beast from the east" hit Europe and the temperature went down to -16 but they were also wrong. There are plenty of things to do in Poland even in winter as you can see from the video.

I spent almost 3 months in Poland basing myself off Krakow and 3 full weeks exploring the country going around from Warsaw, Torun, Gdansk, Malbork, Poznan, Wroclaw, Zakopane and then back to Krakow. I was able to see Poland from both sides of the coin, the winter, and spring sides and see what life is like during those time. The entire experience was eye-opening and one quite unforgettable.

For this video, I decided to start with a lullaby highlighting the tragic past of Poland and as the video continues, the pace picks up from a morning slow life of the city dwellers to the fast and lively technicolor of the country.

I hope you will stick around to the end to catch the glimpse of the real Poland. Enjoy the video and let me know what you think about this one! :)

Wow! Such a wonderful representation of Poland in the winter time. It is a beautiful country, indeed, and it is currently my home away from home. Thank you for producing an awesome video!

Hey Ken,

Thank you for the comments! :) I'm glad you like the video! People were wondering why I was there in winter haha. Well, I hope I got a different perspective of the country. :) Also, there were no tourists anywhere so that's a plus for me as a filmmaker :)
