I am always happy to go back home, to Poland. So you can only imagine my excitement 2 weeks ago when I boarded the plane from London to Poznan.
I would like to begin with my hometown – Mogilno. It is a small town in central Poland. Unfortunately there is not much to do for the youth but I still consider it the best place to grow up.
So what Mogilno has to offer:
- A lake in the middle of the town. I remember when I was a kid the lake would freeze and people would go and skate on it.
- Lakes outside the town: Wiecanowo, Kopczyn , Szerzawy, Gleboczek etc. Plenty of places to cycle to and just swim in the summer.
- Forests and fields, so once again plenty of nature.
- One of the oldest monastery in Poland, founded back in 1065 by one of the Polish King, Boleslaw II The Bold. There are no Benedictine monks there but there is still church inside and they also use the monastery as a hotel.
- The town is clean and the old town houses are renovated.
- The town gave old grain storage building to the art association to organise art exhibition and music concerts. The place Magazyn Zbozowy GS Mogilno had its vibe and it was getting more trendy but unfortunately the town decided to close it because of the “health & safety” bullshit.
- The coolest cemetery location, on the hill by the lake. During the Day of the Dead with all the candles it looks just magical and breathtaking.
I believe Mogilno and its people has lots to offer but it just has to be rediscovered, more jobs need to be created and Magazyn Zbozowy GS Mogilno reopened 🙂
Onward and upward,
