  • ID’s checked! Money checked! Luggage ready then… let’s go!
  • ScaniaIrizar, 64 places, pink as W!Zzair so easy to be recognized! MM 05 FBZ… from Expert Travel
  • Rainy month, rainy weeks, rainy days… striking and lightning in December… I’ve never seen something like that… but before starting our trip, the rainbow was up there… 
  • The “old” guys were with us until the bus left…
  • This was our first day on the road. The pink W!ZZroad was great… and it had some small pillows between the seats – great IDEA!
  • The next 2 nights we are supposed to sleep in the bus… auch! It is a long way… let’s hope it worth! By the way… the TV from previous picture almost had fallen down on Romanian roads. From Hungary it was good We should stop first in Budapest but it was too late so we just go on…
  • The train station was our starting but also ending/extraction point in Prague (we’ve stayed here 10hrs). Across the street was the parking for our bus. Also in the “back” was the Old Square and the main tourist attractions in Praque.
  • This Opera building is situated in the right part of the train station. It was our second contact with a massive nice building. Woow!
  • And the 3rd one… Wooow! This is the building of Narodni Museum. In the right, following the road you’ll reach to the Old Square of Prague.
  • After passing the Post Office building and some other Communication Institutions we’ve reached to this beautiful old tower. You can also see the cleanliness of Prague’s roads…
  • We were now searching for the map of the city… the Powder Tower was in our way to the Main Square where the Tourist Information Office was located. Around this tower were many businesses with sightseeing tours. We’ve found a hotel situated behind the Tower and the receptionist was very kind and offered us a map of the city.
  • The tour of the city (for 40’) costs around 1200 CZK (1 EUR = 24-27 CZK).
  • After we got the map of the city, we started to search a public toilet (WC). It was one right next to the Tyn Church… but it wasn’t free so we go on. Then we started to go around the stands in the Main Square and we’ve also visited the Tyn Church (really nice inside).
  • Everyone was in front of the Town Hall Tower each hour… we didn’t understood why until we saw the Saints running out of the Tower and blessing the crowd. We also find here the Tourist Information Centre (which had to be opened from 9 to 20)… but vainly, cause it was 9:20 and the TIC was still closed. Grrr!
  • Thai Massage… do I have to say more? 
  • There were lots of souvenirs shop… and most of them were using Euros too (not only CZK). The bad part was that you could find the same stuff all over the place. The good part was that the prices were different (or the exchange rate).
  • We finally reached to the Charles Bridge… the most famous bridges in Prague. In all its length was occupied by artists (pictures, paintings, portraits, caricatures, jewels, other handmade stuff). The prices usually vary between 100 and 600 CZK.
  • Woooooow! The Prague Castle and also the St. Vitus Cathedral… what a great view! We just can’t wait to get there! (This picture was taken from the Charles Bridge… while crossing VLTAVA River).
  • We’ve found another Tourist Information Centre and we took a small guide book with us. These stairs should conduct us to the Prague Castle…
  • SaintVitus Cathedral is one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen! It’s extremely impressive… that’s why you have to pay for an audio-guided tour inside of it. After we’ve stayed in queue for more than one hour to get in… we gave up… I guess we should have stayed there for two more hours… anyway, the good part was that we could find a great public toilet there :-D (it was very useful)
  • After walking 3 more hours through the city visiting the Theatre, other bridges, churches and interesting sites we started to freeze… and finally we were lucky to find this shopping mall (to warm a bit and use again the toilets ). It was an old building in exterior but inside… wooow! We invite you to visit Palladium Shopping Mall in Prague 
  • We should have take the bus at 5 pm but it came just around 6 pm… awful! We were freezing in the parking area next to the train station. After that we started our trip to Dresden, Germany.
  • The first minutes in Dresden: Zwinger Palace… wooow! A huge building in baroque style, great illuminated…
  • But after getting out of the Zwinger Palace on the other side… another Wooow! In the right were The Catholic Church and The Dresden’s Castle!
  • Another Wooow! In the left was the Opera House… (we got there around 9 pm when lots of people were getting out of the Opera).
  • We were like dumb… woooow all over the places…
  • This picture was taken in front of the Cathedral and the Castle… too bad that it was late and they were closed 
  • Across the Elba River was one of Dresden’s Museums…
  • But not so far away was this ship… just looking great in that place!
  • The nthwooow! This was the Church of Our Lady, situated in the Main Square of Dresden. It was very clean… but cold as Germans  We haven’t seen anywhere a green main square (with flowers, trees or bushes)… 
  • Some other great buildings next to Elba River and a big panorama wheel. We couldn’t find anything open around so these bushes offered us a good support 
  • We left Dresden around 1:30 in the morning. It was a cold night… we were all tired and wanted to sleep as much as possible to be able to visit Berlin next morning (again 9hrs).
  • We were sleeping until, because of the heat, almost all of us woke up. We were in a parking area from a highway not so far away from Berlin. We first thought that the drivers and the groups coordinators were out for a coffee and they forgot to turn off the heat. We started to make signs to those from the front of the bus… but nothing... In the end we realized that the door of the coach was opened and all of them were inside sleeping 
  • After making circles for 20 minutes near Alexander Platz we went to the East Train Station and parked the bus in that area. The first impressions about Berlin weren’t so great…
  • But then we reached to Gendarmermarkt Square… surrounded by massive buildings like the German and The French Cathedrals. In the middle of the square was sort of a winter fair but we had to pay an entrance fee…
  • The next step was to get to Brandenburg Gate and the wall of Berlin. For that, we first reached to Postdamer Square (surrounded by sky-scrapers and a fake ski-run).
  • Fragments of the Berlin Wall can be seen here… In the upper part, I’m in RDG with one leg and in RFG with the other leg. The route, the track of the Berlin Wall exists even today (but the wall is not there anymore).
  • After searching for a coffee bar for 15 minutes, we decided to enter in this place. Results: a big hot chocolate (3 EUROs) and a tasty sandwich (2,6 EUROs). Mmmm… pretty expensive I would say :- /
  • In the memory of murdered Jews of Europe… right between PostdamerPlatz and the Brandenburg Gate (next to it it is a TIC where you can buy a map of the center with 1 EURO).
  • I wasn’t so impressed by the Brandenburg Gate, maybe because it was crowded and they were making the arrangements for the New Year’s Eve… anyway, it’s an area with lots of Embassies. From there, we went to Bundestag… we wanted to go inside but again it was crowded and we were supposed to wait for almost one hour to get in… next time! 
  • These are two of Berlin’s Cathedrals… really amazing but also the entrance fee: 8 EUROS 
  • Another spectacular building… free entrance! Yuppie!!! 
  • This was the last place we’ve seen before leaving Berlin…. Alexander Platz. A nice place especially in dark because of the sky-scrapers and the TV tower, very nice illuminated. Here we’ve been to see a train station, Galeria Shopping Mall (again to warm up) and Saturn (again to use the toilets ).

Here we’ve been to see a train station, Galeria Shopping Mall (again to warm up) and Saturn (again to use the toilets ).
  • We had to wait for 5 persons who get lost in Berlin for almost 1 hour… but after that we started to F1 Motel situated at 30 km from Berlin.
  • This was our first night in a bed… it was possible to take a shower and also we had a toilet close . At 7 in the morning we started to go to Poznań…
  • This was our first day in Poznań. We were welcomed in a school where our group of 64 was divided in smaller groups. We were a group of 10: we, Adrian (animator - BM), Stefi (Orăştie), Diana (Sinaia), Adi&Gigi&Ţopa (Suceava), Dorin (Oradea) and Alex (Bucureşti). Also here we’ve met Elena: a good friend from Cluj-Napoca… since October 2009 she’s volunteer in Taizé. It was a very nice surprise for both parts (we and she).
  • We’ve been assigned to St. jana Parish, in S-E of Poznań. It was a very long way until there as you can see above… cold and many luggage… and the area was… not as we expected to be. The polish people are very nice: they stopped us on the street cause we looked like dizzy and they have shown us the right way to reach the destination.
  • After stopping a bit at the parish, Ania, Anieta and Claudia took us to the place where we stayed 5 days… UlicaForteczna 42. It was a great surprise for us to find out that we are going to stay in a house. The house was warm as it was expecting us to come… then we got a very nice room, small, but extraordinary for the two of us.
  • After stopping a bit at the parish, Ania, Anieta and Claudia took us to the place where we stayed 5 days… UlicaForteczna 42. It was a great surprise for us to find out that we are going to stay in a house. The house was warm as it was expecting us to come… then we got a very nice room, small but extraordinary for the two of us.
  • The greatest family I’ve ever meet! Multicultural I might also say cause Ufuk comes from Turkey and Chris from Jersey, UK. Lots of people, very kind and warm, offering us the impossible just to feel good, but we felt extraordinary! We shouldn’t forget InspektorMruczek and Fifa, also taking part of the family  Czesć!
  • After meeting the family, we took the tram to go to MTP for dinner and the evening prayer.
  • Having dinner next to other thousands people… a great feeling! For dinner we had some gulasz with bread, an apple, a bottle of water and some sweets. Smacznego!
  • This was our guidebook during the Poznań meeting. At the end of it there were the Taizé songs to be able to learn them. This red light comes from the prayer lights…
  • Our first prayer in Poznań… just listen to the music… don’t you feel a better person now?
  • Chris and the rest of the family were celebrating his 30th anniversary… Happy Birthday Chris!  Don’t forget about the “fire water and also the “Transfăgărăşan” for drifting 
  • This is the St. Jana parish… a warm place with nice people… speaking other languages than English :-P (Italian and Spanish). When we first get there we were afraid of staying with a family which doesn’t speak English… but in the end we fit the best!
  • The first discussion in small groups… in dark  It was very funny cause the switcher next to the door wasn’t the right one. We first thought that there’s no light but actually it wasn’t the right switcher  We’ve realized that after two hours… but it was more special like that 
  • Walking through the Information Point we’ve met some great friends from Zagreb, Croatia. Actually they were my Taizé host in Zagreb 3 years ago… but since then we’ve met every year  They are Tanja, Željko and Kati. See you again in 2010! Happy New Year! :-D
  • This bicycle guy was funny… and the bike can hold you in the back  Poznań’s old town is really nice and we’re inviting you to visit it.
  • We were out for a hot chocolate (8 Zl)/tea (6 Zl)/wine (9 Zl) near the Old Square (it was again cold and we needed a toilet :-P). The prices are as in Romania… (1 RON = 0.95 Zl)
  • Nice people singing and dancing during the dinner 
  • Praying again among thousands of people…
  • Tata Leon made us a great surprise  He put on the Christmas Tree the flag of Romania, next to the flag of Poland, Great Britain and Turkey. Dzienkuję! (Thanks!)
  • Again discussions in small groups, but this time it ended with some funny games  Daniel (Portugal), Dorin (Romania), Kasia and her mum (Poland), the theology students (Poland) and so on…
  • The bus no. 65 has a funny story: every time we had to run… hardly… to catch it  This bus was helping us to reach from the parish to the tram station and vice versa (1,5 km). So… run guys! 
  • MTP: hall 8a (for eating), hall 7 (for taking the food) and hall 15 (post office, souvenirs, information, messages)
  • You can see the hall from outside… it’s really big! You can imagine how many people were inside… praying and singing… great!
  • Instead of visiting Poznań from the tram with our group, we decided to go to a workshop. There were 3 groups: one from Philippines, one from India and another one from Chile I guess. They were singing and dancing and telling us their stories… it was a touching moment, especially that we are interested in Asian sites…
  • Of course we couldn’t miss that! :-D The Paradise came on Earth…  even if Stefy was jealous… :-P Sorry!
  • This is the outside of Poznań’s Cathedral. Nothing special from the front side, but when you’re going into back… wooow! Really great!
  • The inside of Poznań’s Cathedral is nice but not so spectacular…
  • The greatest thing is the Poznań’s Cathedral’s basement. There have been berried some kings of Poznań if I remember well.
  • Two goats beating their heads represent the symbol ofPoznań. This happens daily at 12 pm in the Main Square from the ex City Hall, now Museum. The Main Square is very nice, nifty, clean and nice illuminated. We’re inviting you to visit it!
  • The Poznań’s Castle was built in 1910 by Germans and was used by them until the Second World War. After that it was used by Poland Government. It was also the residence of Adolf Hitler in 1939
  • After we came back home, the family prepared two surprises for us: 1. a great dinner and a tasty chicken; 2. some flying paper balloons (we had to write on the paper our wishes for the next year and then launch it). It was really funny! And… by the way… “rahat” means in Turkish “comfortable”. 
  • A great family picture in the living room (from the left to the right): Marius (me), Tata Leon, Mama Teresa, Kinga, Asia, Chris, Darius, Ufuk and Aga. Kiss you and thank you all!
  • Peace to the world!
  • LaMulţi Ani! Happy New Year! SzczęśliwegoNowegoRoku! Great fireworks all around the city (from 8 places)
  • Lots of sandwiches and cookies for the New Year’s celebration party… yummy!
  • Celebrating the New Year! 1. Shushushusha; 2. The Penguin Dance; 3. Dragostea din tei – O Zone
  • We were singing carols with the Brother James and all Romanian people which went to Poznań. The lady is a Romanian Honorific Consul in Poznań. She told us that she knows only about 3 Romanians who lives in the city. The next Taizé meeting will be in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Uraaa!
  • A group picture before leaving to Romania…
  • The family had inside the house a Geiger Radioactivity Meter because of the Chernobyl disaster and also because of this bunker from the 2nd World War (Attention, radioactivity). Anyway, there are no problems with the area, chill out! 
  • And the long way back had started again… We’re gonna miss Poznań!
  • This was the majority of our group… and the coach  Have a good trip guys!
  • We should be in Warsaw around 17 but because of the snow and bad weather we had a 2 hrs delay. We stayed again 9 hrs but these were the worst because of the cold weather… Brrrr!
  • Woooow! The Greatest Shopping Mall we’ve ever seen!
  • We spent lot of time around the Palace of Culture in different shops, to get warm, to use toilets and check prices  People are nice here too… we were walking with the city map in our hands and a guy stopped and asked us if he can help us with the map… if we know where do we wanna go. We were extremely impressed… It was a small ice-rink next to the Palace building…
  • And these monsters…  Wooow! Especially the building of Ernst & Young! They’re next to the Palace of Culture… and, in our back now is the road to the Old Town.
  • Here starts the Old Town… but the Main Square is in our back.
  • It was a really nice atmosphere on the streets… Cool!
  • Hi! Do you Speak English? / No. / This is the Parliament’s Palace? / Yes.  It was really funny… in the end I’m not sure if this is the Parliament’s Palace or the Presidential Palace… but it looks really nice!
  • Down here is sort of a bench which indicates you where you are, which are the historical sites and sort of a map of the Old Town. If you press the “play” button, Chopin will sing for you…
  • The Old Square is the most beautiful thing in Warsaw I would say… lots of old buildings, churches, one castle… and a “Toitoi” toilet  Enjoy Chopin!
  • From the end of the Old Town you can see the city and also the most famous bridge in Warsaw…
  • After sleeping in cold for few hours we reached to Oswicem where the Auschwitz is…
  • First we went to Auschwitz Birkenau cause we’ve chosen the wrong way… I wanted to see the entrance there cause it’s the most associated place with Auschwitz. In the end we reached to Auschwitz I, situated at 1.2 km from Birkenau. The entrance is free, one postcard costs 1 Zl and you can buy a small guidebook for 4 Zl or 1 Euro.
  • Since you enter into the camp you can feel a mixture of deep feelings… especially if you know that millions of people were killed there…
  • There were 700 tentatives of escape, but only 300 successful. The families of the fugitives were picked up and brought to Auschwitz until the fugitive returned…
  • You have a tough, oppressive feeling in the gas chamber and the crematorium… it’s like you’re together with other prisoners waiting to get killed… Awful… touching…
  • You have a tough, oppressive feeling in the gas chamber and the crematorium… it’s like you’re together with other prisoners waiting to get killed… Awful… touching…
  • You have a tough, oppressive feeling in the gas chamber and the crematorium… it’s like you’re together with other prisoners waiting to get killed… Awful… touching…
  • In the right building, prisoners were stripped and washed before being killed at the Death Wall… Hundreds of prisoners died here…
  • Almost all prisoners were starved so they were underweight…
  • Lots of experiments were made on prisoners… especially on sick people and pregnant women. When they get to the infirmary (blocks 19 to 21 and 27 or 28) they already knew which is the next step: the gas chamber or the crematorium.
  • After such a terrifying morning, we started our trip to Krakow… it was at almost 1 hour distance from Auschwitz.
  • After spending around two hours through the main square searching the Tourist Information Centre and then seeing the main tourist attractions we went to the shopping mall… we needed again a toilet, a warm place and a place to eat. We ate sandwiches and a beef Turkish shaworma… then we bought some water for the road with our last Zlots.  The shopping mall is in the back of the 1st picture (at 5 minutes walking).
  • Here we took Alex too and we went to take some pictures with the city…
  • Alex got lost here but finally we met  From a window up in the Basilica’s tower, someone was singing on a trumpet…
  • Inside the Town Hall is the TIC and during the summer tourists can also go up in the tower (I don’t remember the price of the ticket).
  • We finally reached to the Prague’s Castle… We were expecting to something much impressive, but it also was very nice. In the back it’s a park and in the right of the castle is the Wisla river.
  • This was situated in the back of the castle…
  • While following the map, lots of giant Churches had risen in front of us… it was amazing!
  • The Castle again… that’s impressive! Ha! :-D
  • What to say about this one… it was outstanding! It is situated in the Jews neighborhood.
  • Again situated in the Jews neighborhood… will remain in our memories… Phuh! These 9 hrs passed very easy… We recommend you to visit Krakow from all our heart! Also the entire Poland…
  • It was a long trip back home… not so exhausting cause we slept almost all the way  Again it was a great experience, we enjoyed it a lot and maybe see you next year in Rotterdam! All the best to Gierszewski family which contributed essentially to this success! Dzienkuję! In the last but not the end we want to thank to our group which also contributed to this good, great feeling at the end of the trip.
