Kwas Chlebowy (Kvass) is a traditional non-alcoholic Slavic and Baltic fermented drink usually made from rye bread. It has a sweet-sour smell and a taste of freshly baked bread. As well as being drunk in Poland it is also popular in Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Belarus and Ukraine. Some claim that Kwas can improve digestion, as with other fermented foods such as yogurt and sauerkraut. And being derived from Rye is is a good source of vitamin B-1 and B-6, magnesium, phosphorus, and amino acids.
Four random images from our picture archive of the city of Łódź in Poland. The pronounciation of the word Łódź might be a bit confusing for anyone speaker Polish as a foreign language. Instead of trying to say Lodz it sounds better to say something more like ‘lwooch’ with the oo pronounced as in the word ‘good’. You can listen to me speaking the the word Łódź here!
