MOBILITY IN POLAND
15-20th November 2018
General Mobility Plan:
- Discovering Warsaw with Warsaw Uprising Museum
- Participation in an international conference „Modern IT technologies in digital school and public administration”
- Radom Village Museum – Exploring Polish taste and discovering regional architecture
- Discovering Kraków and Aushwitz Birkenau Museum
We all met in Warsaw. We visited the most beautiful places of the capital – we went to the Old Town, we saw the Royal Castle, the Presidential Palace and we walked along the Warsaw old streets. The highlight of the trip was the Warsaw Rising Museum situated in the old Jewish Ghetto district. The culinary adventure started in a Polish restaurant. On the very first day we tasted ‘pierogi’ and traditional sweets.
Radom Technical School Principal Mrs Bernadeta Kudas welcomes all the participants of the project
The Polish part of the project included taking part in IT Conference „Nowoczesne Technologie Informacyjne w Służbie Cyfrowej Szkoły i Administracji Publicznej” organised by Radom Technical School. We participated in a numer of workshops dealing with a technological aspect of teaching. We decided on the presentation of our activities on the website. Łukasz Gierek showed how to use the website tools and how to communicate using social media. As the majority of workshops and lectures were conducted in English, the project participant had an opportunity to chose the workshops of interest and take part in them. We also had a few organisational meeting in which we discussed the details of the whole project.
In Poland we don’t only taste Polish dishes. We learn how to make pierogi
We visited Radom Countyside Museum. In this living museum we saw old village houses, wind mills, churches and other buildings. All in the snowy scenery. Fun, especially for our guests from Southern Europe. The sightseeing ended with a culinary workshop, in which a professional chef taught us how to make ‘pierogi.’ The workshop integrated all the project participants.
Warsaw. One city, two faces
Each city has a place that is its showcase and a must-see on any trip. In Warsaw, it’s the Old Town, entered on the UNESCO World Heritage List – it’s where the city’s heart has been beating for centuries. However, when you cross the Vistula River and look at the Old Town from a distance, you are struck by how unusual the panorama of the city is – skyscrapers rise above the red roofs of the Old Town. Historical buildings blend in harmoniously with modern architecture, and the city surprises us by revealing its second face.
International Teachers Conference
Exploring Polish taste
Participants will taste extraordinary Polish cuisine which is a style of cooking and food preparation originating in or widely popular in Poland. Polish cuisine has evolved over the centuries to become very eclectic due to Poland’s history. Polish cuisine shares many similarities with other West Slavic countries like neighbouring Czech and Slovak. It has also been widely influenced by other Central European cuisines, namely German, Austrian and Hungarian cuisines as well as Jewish, French, Turkishand Italian culinary traditions. It is rich in meat, especially pork, chicken and beef (depending on the region), winter vegetables (cabbage in the dish bigos), spices, and herbs.
We will try Polish cuisine in a beautiful location – Radom Village Museum
The city of Krakow, which lies on the banks of the Vistula River, was for centuries the capital of Poland, and has accumulated a quarter of Poland’s total number of museum artefacts.
A visit to Krakow is a meeting with the most glorious era in Polish history. Krakow’s Old Town, along with Wawel Castle and the city’s Kazimierz district were placed on the First World Heritage List, created by UNESCO in 1978. At that time, such prestigious recognition had been awarded to only 12 of the world’s most famous heritage sites, including the Egyptian pyramids and the Great Wall of China. Today, the list contains more than 900 sites
All over the world, Auschwitz has become a symbol of terror, genocide, and the Holocaust. It was established by Germans in 1940, in the suburbs of Oswiecim, a Polish city that was annexed to the Third Reich by the Nazis. Its name was changed to Auschwitz, which also became the name of Konzentrationslager Auschwitz.
The direct reason for the establishment of the camp was the fact that mass arrests of Poles were increasing beyond the capacity of existing “local” prisons. The first transport of Poles reached KL Auschwitz from Tarnów prison on June 14, 1940. Initially, Auschwitz was to be one more concentration camp of the type that the Nazis had been setting up since the early 1930s. It functioned in this role throughout its existence, even when, beginning in 1942, it also became the largest of the death camps.
