THORN (NL) jechać czy nie jechać / to go or not to go?

Czy kiedykolwiek zastanawiali艣cie si臋 czy warto gdzie艣 jecha膰? Ja wiem, 偶e zawsze warto gdzie艣 jecha膰 i co艣 nowego zobaczy膰! Pozna膰 nowych ludzi, kultur臋.

Have you ever wondered if it is worth going somewhere? I know that it is always worth to go somewhere and see something new! Get to know new people, culture.

Nasza kr贸tka wycieczka do THORN, ma艂ego miasteczka w Holandii, by艂a do艣膰 spontaniczna. Przeczytali艣my, 偶e jest to “bia艂e” historyczne miasteczko. “Bia艂e” poniewa偶 domy i wi臋kszo艣膰 budynk贸w jest pomalowana na bia艂o. Nasz ulubiony kolor.

Our short trip to THORN, a small town in the Netherlands, was quite spontaneous. We have read that it is a “white” historical town. “White” because the houses and most of the buildings are painted white. Our favorite color.

W rzeczywisto艣ci kolor bia艂y by艂 prze艂amany innymi kolorami. Kamienne ulice. Czarne drzwi i okiennice w wi臋kszo艣ci dom贸w. Du偶o kwiat贸w, drzew i ro艣linno艣ci. Miasteczko nie budzi takiego zachwytu jak Santorini w Grecji. Jednak bardzo mi si臋 podoba艂o! Pomimo dnia bez ani jednego promyka s艂o艅ca.

In fact, the white color was broken with other colors. Stone streets. Black doors and shutters in most homes. A lot of flowers, trees and vegetation. The town does not arouse such delight as Santorini in Greece. However, I loved it! Despite the day without a single ray of sunshine.

THORN to spokojne miejsce. Idealne na “niedzieln膮” kaw臋 albo spacer. Albo tak jak w naszym przypadku: na sesj臋 zdj臋ciow膮!

Zdj臋cia z sesji mo偶ecie zobaczy膰 we wpisie TUTAJ.

Dopytywali艣cie co to za urokliwe miejsce z naszej sesji zdj臋ciowej, wi臋c prosz臋 oto ono i kolejna dawka zdj臋膰 z tej ma艂ej miejscowo艣ci.

THORN is a peaceful place. Perfect for “Sunday” coffee or a walk. Or as in our case: for a photo shoot!

You can see photos from the session in the entry HERE.

You asked what a charming place from our photo session, so here it is and the next dose of photos from this small town.

Sk膮d nazwa “bia艂e miasteczko”?

Pod okupacj膮 (francusk膮) w艂adza miasta na艂o偶y艂a na jego mieszka艅c贸w podatek na podstawie鈥 wielko艣ci okien. Niestety do艣膰 ubogiej spo艂eczno艣ci osiedlaj膮cej si臋 w du偶ych budynkach z ogromnymi oknami po prostu nie by艂o sta膰 na op艂acenie daniny. Sprytnym rozwi膮zaniem problemu wielkich przestrzeni okiennych okaza艂o si臋 ich znacznie zmniejszanie. Elementy ingerencji ludzkiej w postaci nowych cegie艂 zosta艂y w najta艅szy mo偶liwy spos贸b pobielone, niweluj膮c tym samym r贸偶nic臋 w kolorze nowego materia艂u budowlanego. W taki w艂a艣nie przykry spos贸b miasto zdominowa艂a biel, kt贸ra obecnie cieszy si臋 ogromnym uznaniem turyst贸w.

Where did the name “white town” come from?

Under the occupation (French) the city authorities imposed a tax on its residents based on … the size of the windows. Unfortunately, quite a poor community settling in large buildings with huge windows simply could not afford to pay tribute. A smart solution to the problem of large window spaces has been to significantly reduce them. Elements of human intervention in the form of new bricks have been bleached in the cheapest way possible, thus eliminating the difference in the color of the new building material. It is in such an annoying way that the city was dominated by whiteness, which now enjoys great recognition among tourists.

Par臋 krok贸w za ko艣cio艂em jest cudne i bardzo spokojne miejsce. Jezioro ze zdj臋cia pod spodem! P艂ywaj膮 po nim stateczki i wida膰 by艂o w臋dkarzy. W pobli偶u jeziora jest wiele tras do wycieczek pieszych i spacer贸w. Polecam!

A few steps behind the church is a wonderful and very peaceful place. Lake from the photo underneath! Ships float on it and you could see fishermen. Near the lake there are many routes for hiking and walking tours. I would recommend!

Na koniec par臋 wskaz贸wek:

The town is so small that you will not get lost;) In the center a couple of restaurants, apparently the best pancakes in the area.
