Sandomierz
Photographs: Piotr Witosławski
Introduction: Olgierd Budrewicz

English
Album devoted to the beauty of historical town of Sandomierz. This city is almost as old as the whole of Poland: mentions of it go back to the 11th century. It has also had its fair share of the upheavals of Polish history. Sandomierz holds a position almost in the country's centre, on the high Vistula bank at the intersection of routes, and - unfortunately has time and again proved to be a strategic point on the map of Europe. Twice it was trodden underfoot by Mongol and Tartar hordes; in the 18th century it was ravaged by epidemic, and swamped by the Swedish invasion in the 17th; it was gutted by a great fire; plundered by the Austrians; and overwhelmed by both World Wars.

Kolejny album z popularnej serii BOSZ-Polska opatrzony kilkustronicowym wstepem Olgierda Budrewicza. Blisko 90 barwnych fotografii ukazuje piekno tego miasta, jego bogata historie i urode krajobrazu. Tekst polsko-angielski.

To miasto wiekiem dorównuje niemal Polsce calej, wzmianki o nim siegaja XI wieku. A i wydarzenia dziejowe, takze te wielce dramatyczne, dzielilo ono z Ojczyzna zawsze sprawiedliwie. Prawie srodek kraju, wysoki brzeg Wisly, skrzyzowanie szlaków komunikacyjnych, równiez - niestety - punkt strategiczny na mapie Europy, miasto dwukrotnie stratowali Mongolowie i Tatarzy, zmaltretowala w XVII wieku epidemia, "zalal" potop szwedzki, strawil pozar, niszczyli Austriacy, dopadly obie wojny swiatowe. Bardzo dluga litania nieszczesc.
