  1. My memories of Mazury aren’s amazing, but I know it’s a wonderful region, so I know one day I will go back there and try to replace the bad experiences I had there with much better ones.

  2. I had a chance to visit Mazury two years ago. It was my second trip to Poland. What was really amazing – nature. Numerous lakes, forests, meadows – Mazury is a perfect place for quite relaxation
