    The colours of autumn

    Dunajec Gorge in the autumn

    Favorite thing: We visit the Dunajec Gorge whenever we are in the area. The walk along its banks is an unforgettable experience with the rocky mountains towering above and the rapid current of the river beneath. The scenery changes with every bend, the air is fresh and pungent with the smell of the often rare herbs growing on the banks. You can't help marvelling at the trees clinging to the rocks, rooted in the minutest crevices, with hardly any soil. In the autumn the gorge is set aflame with the leaves changing colour to yellow or red. The scenery is gorgeous and well-worth even the longish drive on the winding roads from the Tatras.

    What would the monks say to this?

    Signs of life in Cerveny Klastor

    Fondest memory: On entering the second courtyard of Cerveny Klastor or the Red Monastery abandoned by the monks ages ago we could not believe our eyes. Drawn across the flower-carpeted yard there was a clothes line with freshly washed bedlinen and children's clothes drying in the sun. The monastery had some lodgers! For a moment I tried to imagine that it was my washing and that I was living there within the ancient walls surrounded by the beautiful nature. Wouldn't that be lovely? And yet, would the Cistercian hermits like my presence there, wouldn't it be an intrusion on their secluded way of life, distracting them from their prayer and spiritual worship? Or would they be pleased that their home is alive again after years of desertion and neglect?
