  • Description of the overrated bend, there is no bend in my death. Much harder are on the road from Lysej Polana in Slovakia
    View original
  • I've already traveled so different roads, steep, winding, summer, winter, day, night, that some, if they saw the pictures, would have died from impressions. This passage of the Sudecka Road does not kill anyone because of his own existence, but to pass this path and survive-according to some-it is how to find a needle in a haystack lying on the bottom of the sea, holding one hand of the Lord God for his leg and the other white Raven. Hmmm... Do you really? The road was established in the 30s of the 20th century as a strategic point for possible hostilities, in which the point was to be able to stop foreign troops. The engineer Niekarwowski ordered to drill in the outer. Wall under the road a series of holes, to wrap the terrain, do not put the plates "min niet", and in the event of an alien attack the whole bend and the road were supposed to fly with strangers to the air. As you can see, however, probably the stranger did not get to Earth, because the road exists and did not write on the board info, so that ever someone bleed it up and then rebuilt. But where does the name "Bend of Death" come from? Well, I do not know. Reportedly, in 1945, a few "Tupolevich" stated that regardless of the road conditions, weather and their skills at any speed will fit boldly. Not every one of them knew, however, to land on the proverns door from the barn, and hence this name, although it should rather be called the bend from the ball-changing sheet of cars landing somewhere at the bottom of the slopes a few thousand meters below. In fact, the bend is like billions of others. 180 degrees, limit to 40 km/h, stone wall from outside.... So what's the point? In addition, these beautiful views of the Krkonoše Mountains are also available without a problem, because you can stand at 1-2 parking lot, take a look at this or that viewpoint and pocykać pics or just enjoy the eyes of mountain nature. You do not need to take pictures directing the knee and holding somewhere in front of the face of the camera or smarKfon to make a souvenir photo. I rode the 1-2, I watched the place also from the bottom and never saw that some auto hovered among the broken stones with the hedging this place of the wall in the skies. However, in an accident, knowing the fancy fantasy of our white and red, even more national "miszczuff" handlebars, I do not have any request to change this name. It has been adopted for decades and let it be. And you go, watch out, leave the car in the parking lot and take the infantry for a few minutes to see the beautiful Polish mountains. In nice weather as someone likes such panoramas it is really worth it. But the road itself and the bend....-Nothing is unwashed.
