I have been in Warsaw before only in 1990. Long time indeed. And this February, I came to Warsaw just at the time of Fat Thursday - February 19.
Polish people have this wonderful tradition of Tłusty czwartek - Fat Thursday, the last thursday before the Easter lent.
Poles line up in huge queues to the confectionaries - for special kind of donuts - which are being made and sold only on this day.
I mean, queues are huge!
And the donuts are great indeed! Very tasty, with rose jam inside, and orange dried peel topping. There is a traditional belief, that you can eat as many donuts as you wish on the Fat Thursday, and God will not punish you for the sin of gluttony.
