Uphagens’ House

Gdańsk, Poland

The Uphagen House was erected in the second half of the 18th century by Jan Uphagen, who obliged future owners to preserve the house in its original form. Thanks to this agreement, the building’s original character has been preserved and now houses the Museum of Patrician Interiors. The Uphagen House is a memory of Gdańsk’s former glory. It features a hall, lofty interiors, a stone slab floor built and walls and ceilings decorated with stucco work.

Дійсно унікальний музей, цікаві експозиції, хоч не дуже великий, але 5 хвилин тут аж ніяк не вистачить, не менше півгодини треба :) За свою ціну - цілком те, що треба. Білет недорогий як для польських музеїв, а букінг на нього ще й знижку дає.

Śliczna, odremontowana kamienica z XVII wieku, w której możemy zobaczyć jak wyglądało życie ówczesnych mieszkańców Gdańska. Jest to jedno z moich ulubionych miejsc, do którego zawsze chętnie się wybieram i które uczciwie polecam. Bilet wstępu jest niedrogi, a wrażenia z muzeum niezapomniane.

Uphagen House är ett fantastiskt vackert museum med inträde till ett bra pris. Vackra tapeter, handmålade väggmålningar och vissa originaldetaljer tar andan ur en. Huset förstördes under andra världskriget men har efter det byggts upp för att visa upp sin forna prakt. Möblerna är antika handsnickerier med fantastiska detaljer. Vi undrade lite över om människorna med brickor var vakter, men det visade sig senare att de var guider (tror jag, jag är fortfarande inte säker). Han som vi pratade med var mycket kunnig och lärde oss mycket. I övrigt verkade guiderna (eller vad de nu var) otroligt uttråkade och undvek kontakt med besökarna.

Interesting museum that gives you a fascinating view of how wealthy merchants lived. Fabulous furniture.

A nicely looking museum of the citizens of Gdańsk from the middle ages

Monet's Garden

Claude Monet lived for forty-three years, from 1883 to 1926, in Giverny. With a passion for gardening as well as for colours, he conceived both his flower garden and water garden as true works of art. Walking through his house and gardens, visitors can still feel the atmosphere which reigned at the home of the Master of Impressionnism and marvel at the floral compositions and nymphéas, his greatest sources of inspiration.

In 1890 Monet had enough money to buy the house and land outright and set out to create the magnificent gardens he wanted to paint. Some of his most famous paintings were of his garden in Giverny, famous for its rectangular Clos normand, with archways of climbing plants entwined around colored shrubs, and the water garden, formed by a tributary to the Epte, with the Japanese bridge, the pond with the water lilies, the wisterias and the azaleas.

Today the Monet's Garden is open to the public.
