The Nest

The beginnings of the Polish state

Maria Wojtyszko

The Nest

Since childhood every Pole knows the story about three brave brothers: Lech, Czech and Rus, the white eagle, the evil king Popiel and grandeur Wanda, who did not want to marry a German. We know about the legendary beginnings of the Polish state and its first sovereigns. But do we really know and understand them, do you still feel good about them, do they help us find the answer to the question “Who are you, little Pole?” in the twenty-first century?
Or maybe today “Little Pole” will be more willing to look behind the scenes of a legend and read them a little differently, maybe more fun, more perversely and nowadays through the eyes of Maria Wojtyszko.

Welcome to the Eagle’s Nest!
