Gdańsk and some other staff.;) Gdańsk i inne różności

First of all: welcome to all my new Followers! I can't believe it, there is all 400 of You! Thank you so much! I promise a small give-away to celebrate You soon!:D If I don't follow someone's blog it's because I couldn't find you, so please, please let me know what names of your blogs are.:)

Second: I decided to share a few of most beautiful Polish carols with you. I really think we have a lot of pretty Chrismas songs over here. So they are to hear here until Christmas or the end of this year. Hope you will like them!:)

And last but not least: I promised photos of two cities: Gdańsk(Danzig in German language) and Sopot lately. Today I am posting a few photos from Gdańsk. Interesting thing with Gdańsk: the city wasn't as destroyed as our capital city during WWII so except from well known Old Town, one can easily find a lot of pretty and neglected buildings in other districts of Gdańsk like Oliwa, Stocznia etc.
Hope you will like the photos!

The St.Catherina's Church - there was a major fire in 2006.

Własnie zauważyłam, że aż 400 Osób zechciało obserwować mojego bloga - bardzo wszystkim dziękuję i obiecuję następnego give-away'a już niedługo.
Od wczoraj aż do Swiąt (lub może Nowego Roku) na blogu możecie posłuchać naszych pięknych kolęd.:) A dzis Gdańsk w roli głównej. Mam nadzieję, że fotki się Wam spodobają:)

Kathy said, "Something strange just happened. I just commented how much I LOVE your pictures and asked if you ever received any of our emails. After we clicked "Post Comment", there was no instructions to type in a word, and our comment was gone. Maybe because we all have Polish genes, something psychic is happening?
Please let us know if you have received our emails."
