Hello and greetings from Poland!
My name is Monika and I live in Cracow (Kraków) - the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland. Cracow has an amaaazing history and many beautiful places to see (a view from my window ->

I love the idea of postcrossing :) so far I have received maaany great postcards from wonderful people. I even met my boyfriend on a Polish meet-up :) his profile: http://www.postcrossing.com/user/Enderejew
A perfect postcard for me: single view touristic card with the name of the location on it sent from the country of origin :)
*** Which postcards I'll also enjoy ***
* I prefer SINGLE VIEW postcards
* UNESCO World Heritage sites
* city views
* famous buildings in your country (for example Big Ben, Colosseum, Sydney Opera House)
* National Parks
* USA states, but NO maps (I already have AL, AK, FL, GA, HI, NC, CO, LA, MO, NY, OK, WA, WV)
* CHERRIES - I know it's very specific request but my nickname "wisnia" means "cherry" in Polish so I'm a little obsessed :)
Please check the album of ALL (officials + swaps) my received cards to avoid doubles:
You can also check my favourites to get an idea of what kind of postcards I like:
I always try my best to make a person who receives my card happy... Can you do the same? :)
*** If you could please DO NOT send me any ***
* Samsung Touchnote cards
* handmade, ad/free or folded cards
* cards with babies, animals
* art, fantasy
I don't really like any of them ;)
I also DO NOT consider self-printed photos as postcards, sorry...
I prefer the usual rectangular cards - I'm not fond of the shaped ones (the only exception here are Gotochi cards - I love them ^^)
If you don't know what to write to me, here's an idea - as a person who loves music I'll be happy if you write me the name of your favourite song!
Hope to hear from you soon!
* SWAPS SWAPS SWAPS *
I have many beautiful cards I would love to send to you, but since in 2013 postage prices in Poland became really, really high, I'm only swapping with my missing countries OR a card from my favourites OR a card from your album for swaps I picked myself. Sorry and thank you for understanding.
Here's the album of my postcards for direct swaps:
