Transcript of Our trip
The Baltic sea
The Baltic Sea is in the north of Poland. The coast is very beautiful, with lots of sandy beaches. In the summer, I often go to the beach with my friends. I love swimming in the sea. There are lots of small towns perfect for tourists. The sea is very cold and big. The Baltic Sea is salty. In winter it's cold and it's snowing. In summer the weather is beautiful but it often rains. It's warm and sunny. You can visit old lighthouses and National Parks. You can swim in the sea, go sailing, eat fresh fish and go for a walk along the beach.
A museum of rural life called Karpacka Troja is situated in Trzcinica, near Jasło in the south-eastern Poland. It is also near the Ropa river, on the hill. It is the oldest settlement place in Poland (it is 4000 years old).
This museum of rural life was an old Slavic village in the past. This village was surrounded by the wall made of wood. In the village there are: blacksmith's hut and potter's hut. There is also a small lake and a big gate to go through.
In 1995 archeologists found there some treasures (old money, silver jewellery and an old sword).
I visited this museum of rural live together with my friends in 2012. It is a really interesting and fascinating place.

The Tatra Mountains lie on the border between Poland and Slovakia, between the low-lying basins: Podhale in the north and Spiska and Liptovská in the south. The Tatra chain consists of two main parts - the High Tatras and the Western Tatras. In shape they resemble two bows bent toward the south. The Eastern Tatras are divided into the High Tatras and Bielskie Tatras. The Tatras occupy 785 km2 of land in which the Polish part is only about 175 km2.
The highest peak of the Tatras is called Gerlach (2,655 m ASL) and it’s located in Slovakia. The highest point in Poland is Rysy (2,499 m ASL).

This mine has 9 floors, the first one is called Bono, it has the depth of 64 meters and the last one is 327 meters under the surface. The salt mine is now available for visiting and it became a museum. People also can do weddings there! I think it's a great place to visit, I've never been there, but I think it's amazing!
It's a lowland region in the north-eastern Poland and the Great Lakes District is situated there. Almost all lakes there are postglacial.
