  Stanislaw Wyspianski - self portrait

Favorite thing: The museum at Dolega is full of 19th century Polish history. This house was the meeting point for many armed groups during the January Insurrection of 1863 as they marched across the nearby Vistula River to the Russian sector of partitioned Poland to fight there.

The manor was also a shelter and refuge for defeated and injured groups of insurgents as they retreated.

A tour of this typical nobleman's manor fills one with visions of battles -
victories and losses, human rights and culture - fought for again and again.

A frequent visitor to Dolega was the famous Polish artist, Stanislaw Wyspianski, and two original portraits of his adorn its walls. Many famous Krakowian scientists and artists of the Modernist period held weekend soirees here.

Fondest memory: The warmth and friendship each time I visit.
