Storks are very popular birds in Poland. They are known as a symbol of our country :-). Stamps showing horses from the Janów Podlaski Stud are beautiful! :-) . Some time ago I have visited the Janów Podlaski Stud, which was established in 1817 and it is an oldest state stud farm in Poland. The old buildings in the stud are impressive! Worth seeing are historic stud buildings 'Zegarowa' (1848) and 'Czołowa' (1841) which were built according to Henryk Marconi design.

Some photos - Bazylika Mariacka in Gdańsk

Construction of Bazylika Mariacka began in 1379, or 1343. It is currently one of the two or three largest brick churches in the world. In the photothes you can see the way up to the highest point of the basilica. There are over 400 steps leading to  top of the tower. View from the highest point is astonishing! It is possible to see the whole Old Town and even the Gdańsk Bay and the sea.
