Photographer's Note

Carousel of Julius Verne at Żory Market ..
She came to Żory straight from France and has already turned back in the minds of the inhabitants! The "Żorzanka" carousel is the biggest attraction of this type in our country and without a doubt one of the most beautiful carousels in Europe.
From the beginning of December 2016, the symbol and decoration of the Żory market is the "Żorzanka" carousel. The two-level device, which was produced by the renowned French company Concept 1900, is equipped with 34 figures referring to the novel by Julius Verne, allowing almost 70 people to take a ride at the same time. At first glance, 16 hand-painted illustrations adorning the facade of the carousel are noteworthy. - From the beginning, that the carousel would not only impress with its appearance and make an impression on every visitor, but would also fit into the historical context and educate. That is why paintings of historical Żory from almost a century ago are part of it.
