POLAND ~Bialystok~

Lovely city nightview from Poland (PL-367705). And it is always nice to find something interesting about a place... I didn't know that the language "esperanto" was invented by a polish person...Thanks Mira!!

Białystok is the largest city in north-eastern Poland. It is the gateway to many natural attractions of the Podlasie region, known collectively as the Green Lungs of Poland, including Biebrza and Bialowieza national parks. Bialystok is also the place of birth of Ludwik Zamenhoff, the inventor of the artificial language Esperanto. The city hosted an international Esperanto conference in 2010.
The city's main tourist attraction is the Branickis' Palace, a former residence of a wealthy and influential noble family of Branicki, which used to own the whole city of Bialystok.
