Food, Sports, Sites, Museums, Yearly Celebratory Events
Poles eat breakfast around the same time we do, but they have a second breakfast at around 10 A.M. Their lunch is expected at around 3 P.M. They have a light dinner the same time we do. They consider lunch as their main meal. Some things they have are pierogi which are dumplings, uszka which is a type of ravioli, bigos which is sausage and mushrooms and pickled cabbage, and schnitzel which is breaded cutlets. If you are always hungry, that is a reason to come. The famous sport in Poland is soccer, and Poland is pretty good at it. Poles like to watch local teams play on television. They also participate in other sports including track and field, cycling, table tennis, skiing, ski jumping, basketball, and volleyball. If you like sports, this is a place you might want to travel to. Another thing Poland has are sites to see. You got the Wilanow Palace in Warsaw, the Green Gate in Gdansk, the Golden Gate in Gdansk, the Frederic Chopin Monument in the Lazienkowski located in Warsaw, and the Wawel Castle in Krakow. Day things Poles like to do are kayaking, cycling, and doing other things at home such as cards, television, DVD videos, and reading. Events and holidays Poles celebrate are New Years Eve, Easter, Whit Monday, Labor Day, the Third of May holiday, Corpus Christi, Assumption of the Virgin Mary, Christmas, All Saints' Day, and Independence Day. Poles have interesting lives and food, while they have some of the same activities and holidays we have.
