Photographer's Note

In early autumn, we have still sunny and warm days.
I liked this scene from Market Square in Olsztyn.

Olsztyn is a city on the Łyna River in northeastern Poland. It is the capital of the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship.
Founded as Allenstein in the 14th century, Olsztyn was under the control and influence of the Teutonic Order until 1454, when it was incorporated into the Polish Crown.
From 1516 to 1521, Nicolaus Copernicus lived at the town's castle as administrator and in Mehlsack (Melzak, now Pieniężno). Copernicus was in charge of the Polish defenses in the Siege of Allenstein during the Polish-Teutonic War of 1519–21. He also started and managed the repopulation of the region, inviting a new wave of Polish settlers from Mazovia. The town along with Warmia then entered what is considered the region's golden age, crafts and trade developed, also due to the city's location on the Warsaw-Königsberg (Królewiec) trade route. During this period, the city was still visited several times by Copernicus, as well as leading figures of Polish Renaissance, writers, royal secretaries and diplomats

It is a very pleasant city. The city is situated in a lake region of forests and plains. There are 15 lakes inside the administrative bounds of the city.
