Eyewitness: Travelling South from Warsaw

Our photographer Piotr Herbec has been travelling south from Warsaw over Poland’s wintery roads. He caught in his lense not only a glimpse of a central Poland turned winter wonderland, but also the restaurants and hotels lining the roads connecting the country’s major cities. Frequently, these are built in a style reminiscent of the traditional houses of the Polish Tatra Mountains. But located in the middle of the Great European Plain, hundreds of kilometres away from the nearest mountain range, this roadside highland architecture appears kitschy and quixotic at the same time.
