Medyka has around 2,800 inhabitants and is the seat of a commune (gmina) so the lowest level of local government in Poland. The building of the commune management is pretty big.
Medyka includes only one parish, the parish of saints Peter and Paul. But to my surprise it is located in two churches. The old one is made out of wood.
I could not get inside since the fence was closed.
The new church is made of bricks and seems much more spacious.
Before World War II this region was multicultural. You can see it for example by this old synagogue. It was built at the beginning of the twentieth century and turned into ruins by the nazis. Nowadays, like many others, it is closed.
But the biggest attraction in town is the park and the manor house of the local noble family – Pawlikowski. The park is guarded by a very old fence.
The park is full of interesting trees since one of the previous owners was a dendrologist. He is even commemorated in the park.
Personally I belive it is cool to have a monument actually made out of a real stone. Though the trees are to me a living proof of what Horatius described as "Exegi monumentum aere perennius ...".
Luckily we will not have to swim in the duckweed - here comes the bridge.
The manor house is right on the other side.
On top, I have discovered that in the park they have a special place prepared to have campfire!
Let’s have a little break then and enjoy the sun and the grilled sausages my friends!
