Poland’s surprisingly beautiful cheese

On Krupówki, Zakopane’s most famous street, you’ll find local products from all over Poland’s mountainous Podhale region. Tourists can buy jewellery (including brooches in the typical heart-shaped parzenica pattern), flowered skirts and an intricately carved cheese. Sadly, the latter is likely to be fake. It is very hard to find authentic oscypek – as the decorative cheese is known – in Zakopane. Or anywhere else, really. Oscypek is as delicious as it is beautiful That’s because, as per EU regulations, this golden-hued, spindle-shaped cheese has...

Switzerland’s invisible linguistic borders

It was one of the shortest train rides I had ever taken: just seven minutes and one stop from the Swiss city of Neuchâtel. Yet when I disembarked in the small town of Erlach, everything seemed, somehow, different. At first, I couldn’t put my finger on it. Something about the architecture perhaps? People’s body language? Even the air, crisp and ridiculously fresh in that distinctively Swiss way, felt somehow changed. I walked for a while, befuddled. I was still in Switzerland, that much I knew. I had not crossed any international border. Then I glanced at a street sign, and...

The secret cherry taking over Canada

My eyes drifted toward a mound of pastries on the counter of 33 1/3 Coffee Roasters, a cafe in downtown Regina, Saskatchewan, and my stomach growled with hunger. But a simple handwritten card piqued my interest, distracting me for a moment. Placed directly in front of a large pile of bulbous-shaped scones, it read ‘Prairie Cherry’. They grow them everywhere around here As a first-time visitor to this western Canadian province, I didn’t know it was possible for this fruit, which traditionally thrives in temperate regions, to grow out on the prairies. During winter,...

Are Lithuanians obsessed with bees?

In mid-January, the snow made the little coastal town of Šventoji in north-west Lithuania feel like a film set. Restaurants, shops and wooden holiday cabins all sat silently with their lights off, waiting for the arrival of spring. I found what I was looking for on the edge of the town, not far from the banks of the iced-over Šventoji river and within earshot of the Baltic Sea: Žemaitiu alka, a shrine constructed by the Lithuanian neo-pagan organisation Romuva. Atop a small hillock stood 12 tall, thin, slightly tapering wooden figures. The decorations are austere but...

The world’s oldest working planetarium

There was a beat of silence as the room’s atmosphere shifted from inward reflection to jittery disbelief. “How is that even possible?” said one visitor, waving a pointed finger at the living-room ceiling. “Is it still accurate?” asked another. “Why have I never heard of this before?” came the outburst from her companion. Craning my neck, I too could hardly believe it. On the timber roof above our heads was a scale model of the universe, painted in sparkling gold and shimmering royal blue.
