Photographer's Note

The name of the town, Słupsk, originates from the Słupia River, which passes through it. I was lucky to have this walk in Słupsk shortly after they have done the boulevard promenade along the Słupia River. Here you can see a fragment of it. On the left hand side you can spot a red brick building with a tower, currently it houses the Municipal Public Library in Słupsk but judging by the presence of the tower you can guess that in the past it was a church. It was St. Nicholas church of the Norbertine Monastery. The erection of the walls of the church began in 1311 and it was built by the end of the 14th century.

By the way, when I spelled it Slupsk it was a simplification because the title does not accept Polish alphabet letters. In the text I used the correct spelling which is Słupsk (in English you get close to is of you replace ł with w, try to read Swoopsk or Swoopia.
