„Poland’s 30 most beautiful motorcycle routes”
The tourism expert and Travel Projekt CEO Stephan Montenarh from Warsaw knows Poland inside out thanks to numberless motorcycle journeys on his 116 horsepower engine, a SuperMoto KTM 990SM made in Austria. Stephan reports about meetings and experiences with both kind and obliging Polish people, about beautiful, sensational and breathtaking landscapes and unique sights in the wonderland of Masuria, at the wild rolling hills of Silesian Beskid Mountains, at the lowlands around the Baltic Sea coast, at the mystical and legendary Karkonosze Range, on the high mountain passes of the Tatra’s, in the unspoiled nature and low populated East of Poland, close to Belarus as well as on serpentine trails in Bieszczady Mountains in the borderland of Slovakia, Ukraine and Poland.
A look to the index with programmes such like „Alpine Rush in Tatraland“, „Jews, Jungle and Tatars“, „Amber Coast and Checkered Land“, „Silesian Beskid Carrousel“ and „Polish Tuscany & Wild Bieszczady Mountains“ stirs up excitement sky high and surely the reader won’t be disappointed. Absolutely unexpected, an emotional meeting with a German expatriate, who wants to see his parent’s home once again after a lifetime, takes place in Prussia. Furthermore, the businessman ranges the Polish jungle and finds the last Tatars, deep hidden in the East. Also readers get to know, why Polish girls and women have to escape full of panic fear each year on Easter Monday, when they see male teenagers appearing, where the famous Grass Vodka comes from, how the Jewish parish lives in Poland in this day and age, which pearls can be discovered in the Polish Tuscany and what Teutonic Knights have done.
Stephan’s motorcycle trips are leading touristical main roads aside to lonesome places and providing tips, how the reader can plan his own motorcycle tour to Poland; the chapter „Biker Info“ at the end of the book is very helpful for this.
The book lives from many emotional meetings, personal impressions and touching experiences. Interesting written and rich illustrated, the book is a nice, entertaining and travel bug increasing lecture which makes appetite for Poland tours and shows, that the “Wild East” is far away from being wild.
It is not a classical guidebook and combines rather sightseeing, attractions, landscapes and motorcycle trails with background information on the current social and political situation and allows to see deep insight the Polish soul. Also regional traditions are considered.
The book is recommended for motorcyclists, who wants to know more about Poland and Poles and get in touch with one of the most beautiful and varied countries all over Europe; reduction of prejudices are included!
