Płock, Poland in pictures

This post was supposed to appear in here on Sunday, as a part of “Sunday with pictures” serie. But South Africa has the worst internet ever, it either doesn’t work or you need to pay for it (and it’s not the cheapest one). Anyway, here’s another photo post, from lovely Płock

I was planning to go to Płock for couple of years yet always something else came up. This city, located not that far from Warsaw, isn’t the easiest location to get to by train but eventually one August weekend I set off to discover Płock. And I’m really glad I finally did so!

Płock is one of the oldest cities in Poland, dating back to the Xth century. Shortly after it became the center of science and art of the area and even was a capital of Poland for almost 60 years (1079-1138). Its best period was under the Piast rule, after that it just suffered a lot from wars, fire, plague etc and eventually lost its importance. Again in the XIXth century, when Płock was under the Russian control (in the times when Poland was divided between Russia, Prussia and Austro-Hungary) it became an important center, mostly due to the trade on Vistula River. These days it’s a fairly big and well developed city that hosts a lot of cultural events all year round.

The Old Town isn’t very big one but is definitely pleasant. There’re lots of beautiful, colorful houses, gothic churches, cobbled streets and some really lovely green areas. But its best feature is the location. It’s up high on the hill, overlooking the wide Vistula river and offering pretty amazing views of the surroundings. I can’t say it is my fave Polish city but I still enjoyed it quite a lot. And I can easily recommend it for a daytrip from Warsaw, it’s well worth visiting!

Here you have couple of pictures from Płock:
