If you travel in Poland, you can see plenty of chapels at the roads. These are materialised prayers of the people for things that often nobody already remembers.
It is so many of them around, that they just became part of the landscape. Appearing suddenly, sometimes far away from any housings. As you can see - there are still people taking care of them. Often you can see fresh flowers.
We are so much used to it. They are just there. Nobody asks why. Tourists coming to Poland always ask questions. So, to let you know more about it, I will explain shortly.
Chapels around Poland are either wooden or made of bricks and concrete. Can be found in many places. Some of them are very old. Sometimes made by ordinary people, sometimes by nobles or artists. Always this is either 'thank you' for extraordinary help from trouble, or a prayer for help, or just manifestation of religiousness.
Some people still remember stories connected with it. I would love to collect them.
This chapel I saw on my Sunday biking, close to my home.
If you look carefully, you can see little ad on the tree. This is very particular prayer: "Cat got lost" - must be very loved cat, right?
