J'en Suis La Award As we count down to the latest TISC Grand Final, to be held in Poland on Saturday, April 17th, we have decided to use this timeframe to catch up with our very own TISC Special Awards.

  2. Kórnik Castle The current look of the castle resembles Gothic Revival architecture, one of the popular historicising styles in the 19th century. The main entrance to the castle is located at the northern side. Its characteristic feature is a four-centred arch at the top of the window above the entrance. Up until the interwar period the castle was entered through the so-called babiniec - a barbican-shaped chamber which was subsequently demolished in the years 1925–1939. The western side of the castle features an expanded terrace overlooking Lake Kórnik. The s

  9. Breaking News Due to rapidly raising of new coronavirus cases in Poland, organizing committee made a hearthbreaking but necessary decision about postponing Grand Final of TAISC 2021 which was scheduled for April 17th, about a year, to April 2022. We all known that health and life are the most important things, right now inviting your everyone to Poland wouldn't be safe for anyone. But we are hoping that until next year, world will come back to normal, thanks to vaccine and social distancing. Organizing committee express the hope for understanding from every competing nation.

  30. Today we will visit another interesting place, it's..... Elbląg Canal Elbląg Canal is a canal in Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship, 80.5 kilometres in length, which runs southward from Lake Drużno (connected by the river Elbląg to the Vistula Lagoon), to the river Drwęca and lake Jeziorak. It can accommodate small vessels up to 50 tonnes (49 long tons; 55 short tons) displacement. The difference in water levels approaches 100 metres, and is overcome using locks and a system of inclined planes between lakes. Today it is used mainly for recreational purposes.

Sałatka jarzynowa Sałatka jarzynowa or sałatka warzywna (vegetable salad) is always vegetarian salad, consisting of peas, hard boiled eggs, and the mirepoix, always cut into small cubes, seasoned with mayonnaise, salt, pepper. Recipes usually vary by region (tart apples or pickles can be added) and even by household, sometimes even adding meat (for example ham). One such notable exception is "szałot", a Silesian variety which may include not only boiled potatoes, carrots, peas and boiled eggs, but a

This is miles better compared to 2019/20 season where Norway had 55 podium finishes with 32 gold medals. It seems that Norway compensated mostly with silvers and bronzes and were met with huge success in both the men's and the women's side with 8 different Norwegian athletes getting on the podium at some point and 7 of them scoring wins as well.
