Mazovian landmark from the air

Less than six miles/ten kilometres south-west from Jeziorki is an even higher structure than anything Warsaw can boast. Indeed, until 1962, this was the highest structure in Europe. This is the Raszyn radio transmitter, snapped through the early morning haze soon after take-off from Okecie. The radio mast is clearly visible on the flat Mazovian skyline from our neighbourhood. To the right of the picture is the main Warsaw-Krakow road that leads through Radom and Kielce. This part of it is still dual carriageway (!).
