Pejzaż – landscape, cityscape
I first came across this word from a Czerwone Gitary song, recorded in 1972, though I only discovered it in the late 90’s – “czarno-biały pejzaż miasta”, singing along to it during a blazing hot summer in my Ford KA car with the windows wide open (no aircon). It’s a wonderful word for this time of the month, when suddenly nature is full of youth and abundant greenery. It can also be used to describe a media landscape, pejzaż medialny or a painting depicting an expanse of natural scenery. Lush!
So here’s the song on YouTube if you’d like to hear it again – or for the first time!
