Morast

Remember, when I told you about the the tavern - the place where you can eat, drink and listen to live music in the marina? Here are a few pictures where the tavern is quiet and actually closed, because it's winter :)

The historic name for today's tavern is Morast Redoubt and it was built in 1770-74 as a protection of the harbour. It had a very advantageous position - on the  headland of Solna Island and in fork of the river Parsęta and the Drzewny Canal. It's pentagonal and it has embrasures in the walls. It used to have a ditch filled with water, but since then it's been covered.

Pamiętacie, kiedy Wam powiedziałam o tawernie w  marinie - miejscu , gdzie możecie zjeść, napić się i posłuchać muzyki na żywo? Oto kilka jej zdjęć w zimowej scenerii, choć jest teraz zamknięta.

Reduta Bagienna, bo taką historyczną nazwę posiada tawerna została wybudowana w latach 1770-1774 dla obrony portu. Miała bardzo dobra pozycję do tego celu - na cyplu Wyspy Solnej i w rozwidleniu rzeki Parsęty i Kanału Drzewnego. Ma kształt pięciokąta, a w ścianach znajdują się otwory strzelnicze. Kiedyś wokół reduty biegł rów z wodą, ale został on zasypany.

The gate weights over 600 kg. It was restored in 2013 and most of the elemets are original.

Brama waży ponad 600 kg. Została odrestaurowana w 2013 i większość elementów jest oryginalna.

The stage, as you can see, is covered by folded benches. In the summer it will be filled by music.
----------
Scenę, jak widać, zastawiono ławkami, ale latem wypełni się ona muzyką.
 'ere you can be shackled should you wish to.
----------
Jesli tylko sobie życzysz możesz dać się zakuć w dyby.
In the summer the smokehouse will reopen for starved patrons.
------------
I znowu latem wędzarnia będzie pracować pełną parą, by wypełnić żołądki gości.

  5. The curved arch at the background is the Harbour Bridge, you can see it in my other posts: http://kolobrzegcountyphoto.blogspot.com/2017/01/new-years-eve-20162.html?m=1 ; http://kolobrzegcountyphoto.blogspot.com/2016/12/lazy-afternoon.html?m=1 ; http://kolobrzegcountyphoto.blogspot.com/2016/11/the-harbour-bridge-by-night.html?m=1
