SANSSOUCI „without worries”

The summer palace of  Frederick the Great in Potsdam, near Berlin. Sanssouci was designed by Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff between 1745 and 1747. It was a private residence where Frederick could relax from the hubbub of Berlin court. The name ,,Sanssouci” is really intersting because comes from French phrase : ‚sans souci’ which means ,,no worries” or ,,without concerns”. If you will be in Potsdam, you should see this magical place! Below you will find my shoots’ from this historical place.

I hope that will inspire you! Enjoy my post!

Palma de Mallorca – My love of beautiful things

In one of my earlier posts I wrote about history of the Palace in Palma de Mallorca, in refers to the collection of sculptures( Bartolome March Foundation). Today I would like to pay my attention for the interior of this historical place. In my post You can find a few ‚shoots’ with my perspective for the unique interior. Special furniture, paintings or textiles makes that we can imagaine historical and yet interesting past. Enjoy my shoots 🙂


W jednym z poprzednich postów pisałam na temat historii March Palace w Palma de Mallorca, lecz skupiając się głównie na kolekcji rzeźb Bartolome March Foundation, znajdującej się na placu przed głównym wejściem. Dziś swoją uwagę pragnę poświęcić wnętrzu pałacu. Pomieszczenia takie jak jadalnia oraz sypialnia wywarły na mnie największe wrażenie. Unikatowe wyposażenie wnętrz w postaci klasycystycznych mebli, tkanin, malarstwa sprawia, że jesteśmy w stanie przenieść się w czasie będąc na Palmie. Poniżej znajdziesz kilka moich shootów, które pokazują wnętrze pałacu z mojej perspektywy.
