China pops in on Chopin

Park Lazienki, the Royal Park is currently hosting a little bit of China along one of it’s avenues.  Two long rows of beautiful red Chinese lanterns line the path way and cross a little bridge where some (rather stylized) Chinese characters sit.  The lanterns are really beautiful, with so many different designs it’s impossible to count.  During June they were lit up between 9 and 11 every night, but now we are in July they are just being lit up on a Friday Saturday and Sunday night, but it is worth a visit, and to wander around the whole park at night is quite beautiful experience.  There are pretty much no other lights in the park apart from the lanterns, so it is very very dark if you are still there by 11.  It does make for a really nice evening out though.  The second to last image is probably the best for demonstrating how beautiful some of these lanterns are.
