P is for Poland

In 1986 I made a trip to Poland with our daughter. These are some cards from our trip.

Gdansk
 St Nicholas' Church is the oldest church in Gdansk built in late 12th century. Between 1348 and 1390 a cloister was added. This is the only church in Gdansk which wasn't damaged during the last World War.  

The Royal Chapel - Kaplica Królewska
is the only Baroque church in old Gdańsk built between 1678 and 1681.  
King Jan III Sobieski wasthe founder of the chapel.

"Hi! We are now in Gdansk. The boat trip went fine.
Ps. Greetings to Kuutti, Jymy and Julle"
( Kuutti was our samoyed and Jymy and Julle our guinea pigs :)


Warsaw
