Poland unforgettable memories

Selected Attraction

Czarnolas - Jan Kochanowski (John of Blackwood) museum

Czarnolas is famous as the former residence of the Polish Renaissance poet, Jan Kochanowski, also called "Jan of Czarnolas" what means "John of Blackwood". In Europe, he is regarded as one of the greatest Slavic poets up to 19th century - his poetic patterns became integral for Polish literature. It was Czarnolas where he used to write his most known poems, both funny epigrams (which eg. read one way could be understood as a sb's glorification, but read from the end was criticising them) and moving Laments, written after the death of his young daughter, Urszula.

Kochanowski's original manor house was burnt down in 19th century. The new one, now  a museum of a writer, is surrounded by a beautiful park with a famous linden.
