Załęcze Wielkie, Poland

Sunset over Załęcze Wielkie, Poland

Załęcze Wielkie lies in the Łódź Voivodeship (Polish province) in central Poland. It is a small village of about 20-25 buildings, and is 18km from the county’s capital of Wielun. It also happens to boast Nadwarciański Gród, a small woodland campus for hosting summer camps–which is how I became acquainted with the village. Every July, the village sees an influx of Americans for the The Kosciuszko Foundation, in which Polish teens can learn English at a summer Arts camp. Running through the park is the Warka, a river (also a beer) that is both the 3rd largest in Poland (though still small and calm enough to lazily float down), and mentioned in the national anthem. Sunsets like this are common when living is small chalets, roasting marshmallows and kielbasa (but not at the same time!), and strumming guitars by campfires. Sometimes, you have to go back to the basics, and watch a beautiful sun set over  a river to put everything into perspective.
