    Wooden shutters

    WINDOW  OF  KORDON  PENSION

    Old wooden houses usually have windows with wooden shutters in Sopotnia Wielka. They were painted in green in Kordon Pension cottage. Hmm... contemporary houses never have them and look not so cute in my opinion. Am I wrong?

    KORDON  PENSION

    You can find quite many wooden houses around Sopotnia Wielka. But not many of them stand along main highway - most are of brick there. You must hike up to find them.
    Look at this one on my picture - Kordon pension made of thick wooden logs painted in dark brown. There was special, old technique used to fix them together with... grass.

    KORDON  PENSION

    Look at roofs of local houses whenever you are in Sopotnia. They are surely different.
    Personally I liked that roof on my picture - of Kordon Pension. Wooden cottage roofed with sheet iron painted in light brown. Add nice looking chimneys.

    Local dogs

    DOG  BY  KORDON  PENSION

    You can find a lot of dogs ususally by doggy houses put in yards of local homes. There are typical mountain dogs among them: Polish breed called Polish Tatra Mountain Sheepdog (Polski Owczarek Podhalanski). They derive from nearby Tatra Mountains region - the highest mountains in Poland, located on southern border with Slovak republic.

    This one on my picture was very friendly and wanted to pose - an ideal companion dog, I think!

    DOGGY  HOUSE

    They put up doggy houses made of wood by human houses in Sopotnia Wielka. Hmm... larger dogs demand larger houses. This one on my picture was located just by Kordon cottage.

    Hmm... they kept a dog on iron lash. Shoudn't it be forbidden? Is it allowed in your country/region?

    Locked door doesn't mean closed

    Entrance to Zajazd Sniezka

    If you find locked door to restaurant, pub or a store in Sopotnia Wielka it doesn't mean that it's closed.
    Often out of the season the owner locks the door and... is waiting for ring-door signal.
    So, use it, ring and wait. In a minute or so the door will open and you will see smiling native with great welcome.
    Rare customer is treated like king/queen there.

    ARCTIC  CAT  SNOW-MOBILE

    .
    Snowmobiles are new winter means of transportation - hmm... too noisy but easier to maintain then horses.
    I rather prefer horses and sledges.
