Mazowsze… In almost the very center of the European continent, and of Poland, there stretches out a picturesque land of cornfields, old forests and riverside meadows—a land of plains crossed by meandering rivers. And set in this landscape are villages, towns are and small, roadside crosses and shrines, places of worship of wood and stone, manor houses, palaces and castle walls dating back to the time of the Dukes of Mazovia. And at the center of it all a city with a long history and fine monuments, Warsaw—capital of both its region and the whole Polish state.
