Gubin, Lubuskie, Poland

A photograph of the open air street market in Gubin, Lubuskie, Poland. Walk around the market and you'll often hear more German than Polish being spoken. This market located as it is right on the border between Germany and Poland caters almost exclusively for German visitors crossing the River Nysa Luzycka (Neisse) from places like Cottbus, Forst and Guben in Germany. Shoppers come to Gubin to buy everything from foodstuffs, cigarettes, alcohol, to garden gnomes, women, and petrol! Prices are rather cheaper in Poland than Germany. Gubin is in the province of Lubuskie, in western Poland.
