Bicycle trip from Rzeszów to Baltic coast, Pl, … chapter 11, 15th August 2014 – all ways lead to Mrągowo

DSC02776 There is popular Polish country song “Wszystkie dorgi prowadzą do Mrągowa” which means “All ways lead to Mrągowo” as that little town is Polish capital of country music with its country festival hosted every year over the The Czos Lake. That day I couldn’t help singing this song because Mrągowo was that day destination for me. I was singing rather sharp or flat I’m afraid, but it didn’t matter much to me since I was still riding solo. The day started with nutricious breakfast including delicious home-made honey. A few kilometers among fields and I was already in Giżycko, a little town surrounded by lakes. One of the most famous tourist attraction of the place is Boyen Prussian fortress. DSC02800 It originates from the middle of 19 century and one can easily spend there a whole day roaming in vast area and admiring the details of brick military architecture of passed Times (even if it is just a loo as shown below :). DSC02801 I spent there about 3 hours (I mean – not in the loo) although wish I had spent more but quite a long stage awaited me. I moved towards Ryn. There is a castle, it’s not very impressive from outside, but inside you can feel like a knight.

Jędrzej, my WS host at that time had another guests, a couple from Spain, so he took us all and his Polish friends for a nice 20 km bike route in vicinity of Mrągowo.
