"Culture made so real you can read it, see it, taste it, hear it, eat it, drink it, feel it, touch it, speak it, wear it, download it". With the spotlight thrown on Poland and Ukraine in the context of the Euro 2012, three handy guides lay down three ways of getting to know Poland: through its cultural heritage, by following the views and tips of contemporary artists or by exploring its classic tourist attractions
Culture in all its guises: the creative arts that give a country its spirit as well as the culture of everyday life. Following the likes of Speak the Culture: France, Speak the Culture: Great Britain, Speak the Culture: Italy, Thorogood Publishing, with the assistance of the Adam Mickiewicz Institute brings out Speak the Culture: Poland - Be fluent in polish life and culture. An insightful presentation of the cultural figures and forces that have shaped Poland and the Poles, the book includes among others chapters on Literature and Philosophy, Art and Architecture, Cinema and Fashion and Food Drink. From esteemed writers, artists, composers who shaped the nation’s outlook at different times in history to art in contemporary Poland, Speak the Culture: Poland is comprehensive yet concise, to the point and entertaining.
With mentions of convention dictating that throwing away old bread could bring bad luck or hunger, a Polish vegetable aphrodisiac and a dining etiquette requiring frequent toasting, the guide also provides an intimate understanding of how the Poles think and behave. Travel Journalist Barry Forshaw comments on the series, "No publisher has attempted anything quite like this, and the publishers Thorogood are to be much applauded for their ingenuity and achievement".
About POLSKA: an insider guide for outsiders introduces the country’s Life, Cities, Nature and Ideas through the eyes of artists and well known personalities. The short guide focuses on the presentation of stylish galleries, fashionable streets and trendy and original restaurants. Writers, reporters, and fashion designers recommend their favourite cafés, clubs, books stores and markets. "Poland is still a little bit more unpredictable, a little bit more impetuous and a little bit less well-groomed than its western neighbors and a lot more creative", journalist and Pulitzer Prize winner Anne Applebaum who has been living in Poland for a long time comments. About POLSKA includes a clever list of Dos & Don’ts, a lowdown on the basic aspects of everyday life and a witty guide to sounds in the Polish language. The guide is published by the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
