We went by car from Holland to Biskupin, most roads are ok in Poland. The signs are good, just take a good map with you. There are enough small and big restaurant for drinks and food. The ones i like most are the ones called "BAR" , thats were they serve local food.
They are cheaper than the restaurants on the highway.
The "local Indians" have there a great choise of the jewelery.
What to buy: Jewelery in the Indian style: bracelets, necklaces, beads, trinkets, rings....
I like very much the beads. The "Indians" make it them-self of glass.
They sell too CD`s and tape cassettes with Indian`s music.
What to pay: I think you can negotiate the prises
The little city is 2 km from Biskupin. There is the bus station. You can go too with the narrow gauge railway train, wich connecting such places like ¯nin, Wenecja, Biskupin and Gasawa (12 kms). This is the part of Szlak Piastowski (Piast route).
On the foto there is the fountain near of the Church in Gasawa and the bus station.
The reconstructed fragment of the Lusatian Culture settlement, wich was built on a two hectare marshy island on the Lake Biskupin. The archaeologists date the settlement to the Early Iron Age.
The most characteristic there is the wooden tower and the gate. The gateway there was a 250 m wooden bridge, 3 m wide.
Fondest memory: The Museum in Biskupin is open all year round from 8:00 a.m to 6:00 p.m. (in winter until dusk). You need for the tour about 2 hours.
