The place is unique. Its identity has been determined by Polish history, human as the creator of material forms supported by the nature. It is a collective work, continuously shaped for over a century. “Cemeteries are not for the dead, but for the living” – as Wiktor Zin stated. The image, created by successive generations, still can be reinterpreted – as a whole or selectively as individual tombstones and monuments of exceptional artistic value. In Powązki Military Cemetery there can be found traces of activities of recognized artists, whose names and work remain undisplayed in the cemetery. This study aims to highlight some of monuments in order to remove author’s anonymity and to show their work in broader cultural and historical context. The article is a result of numerous visits to the cemetery with a camera in an effort to frame images of monuments. In addition, the paper shows effects of research for data on monuments’ authors.

This article elaborates the ways of popularising knowledge about the past of Mazovia by Museum in Płock since its establishment, as part of the Płock Scientific Society, in 1821. It had a strictly regional character. The collection consisted, on the one hand, of school teaching aids (minerals, physical and chemical equipment, globes, etc.), and on the other hand, of various exhibits donated by teachers, students, landowners, military personnel and priests, including numerous archaeological artefacts, coins, medals, natural history specimens, documents, etc. During scientific meetings, the latest archaeological and numismatic troves were reported, field inspections were organised, historical monuments were collected and placed in the museum. The institution was closed down shortly after the fall of the November Uprising. It was reactivated at the beginning of the 20th century.

The aim of the article is to make readers aware that: – special acts cause chaos in the legal system and do not guarantee the preservation of order in space;– the best tool for determining the location of investments, not only of public purpose, is the local spatial development plan drawn up on the basis of the provisions of the Spatial Planning and Development Act.

The subject of the article is the ambiguity of terms related to environmentalism in Polish. The article presents the results of a research on students’ understanding of concepts related to environmentalism. The article also includes a theoretical analysis of the comprehension and use of terms such as ‘ecology’, ‘ecologist’ and ‘ecologism’ in Polish.One of the inspirations for the study was the lack of distinction in Polish between ecology as a science and an ecologist as a biologist, and environmentalism which is also called ‘ecology’ in Polish and an ecologist as an pro-environmental activist (‘environmentalist‘) which occurs in English.

The Act on the preparation and implementation of investments in the reconstruction of the Saxon Palace, the Brühl Palace and tenement houses at Królewska Street in Warsaw entered into force in 2021. This is another of many of so-called special acts that suspend the implementation of generally applicable regulations.In 1939, the Saxon Palace, the Brühl Palace and the tenement houses at Królewska Street formed the western frontage of the square which was named after Marshal Józef Piłsudski. The aim of the article is to demonstrate that generally applicable regulations are sufficient to organize the reconstruction, in particular to determine the location of above-mentioned buildings.
