With a chisel and a laugh – in Szklarska Poręba

Szklarska Poręba has become one large gallery again – in many places there are signposts carved in wood depicting humorous scenes. Similar buildings decorated this city before the Second World War. Unfortunately, none of them survived. How did it happen that the new ones were built?

There are 14 signposts. There are boards with maps, and a map of hiking trails in a paper version (“Szklarska Poręba Harrachov and its surroundings”) was issued. They came from the chisel of Ewa Jonas-Wojtowicz, a sculptor from Borowice. The signposts are the fruit of the Polish-Czech cross-border project, which ended at the end of September 2013. The total value of the project and, at the same time, the eligible costs of the project are EUR 30,812.07, ERDF co-financing: EUR 15,406.03, state budget subsidy: EUR 1,811.75.
