For the fourth time we have a pleasure to invite you to one of our favourite festivals at Mysia 3 Shopping Centre. Two queens – coffee and tea – will reign at the October edition of one our cyclical events – the Festival of Tea and Coffee.

AUTUMN CROPS 2

 

We have a pleasure to invite you to the second edition of Crops – The Festival of the Countryside. Last year’s event in Warsaw had a fantastic turnout and this is why we decided to organise the Festival again. There will be delicious products straight from the field, unique handicraft, natural cosmetics as well as discussions about modern farming methods. 

LISTEN, EAT, AND BREATHE

Open air, low-key concerts, stargazing, and little feasts all await you at the extraordinary Breaths Festival (Pl. Tchnienia). The Festival takes place in an ancient Orthodox church in Baligród in the Jabłonka River Valley, in late August, early September. USTA Magazine is media patron on the event!

Different Pressure Levels

In the current issue of the USTA Magazine you can read an interview with Andrzej Bargiel, the first man to ski down the Broad Peak in Karakorum. Few years ago he left everyone behind in the prestigious Elbus Race in extreme class. Last summer he established a new record in the fastest conquest of the five highest peaks of the former USSR. Andrzej tells us about the hardships, the turning points and the reasons why it is worth going alone in the mountains and live there day by day.

White & red

The first WHITE RED Polish Wine Festival will be held from 24 to 25 June. (THE PROGRAM BELOW) The festival has been created on the initiative of wine enthusiasts involved in the reconstruction of the wine culture in Poland: restaurateurs, winemakers, wine importers and distributors. WHITE RED The Polish Wine Festival will be facilitated at Forteca u Kręglickich and is intended to popularize Polish wine by showing that in Poland interesting wine is produced, often more appreciated outside it.

Truffle polenta with asparagus tempura

To say goodbye to the asparagus season, we bring you a delicious vegan recipe idea by Mickey Rotten. Served in tempura on truffle polenta with tarragon vinaigrette –that’s something nice and new. Especially that the we’ve eaten all other versions of asparagus – boiled, fried, in salad, with an omelette –  already dozen times this season. Bon appetit!

USTA VINTAGE

You have no idea how excited we were when we decided that the next USTA issue will be dedicated to vintage! Our editorial team haven’t been this euphoric about the theme of our magazine for a long time! With sparkles in our eyes, fantastic ideas for photo shootings and articles we started working on the new issue of the USTA Magazine about all things vintage.

EYE ON KRAKOW!

 

For the first time USTA Magazine invites you to the “Eye on…” event in Krakow. Another episode of our series of events organised together with PURO hotels will take place on September 22. Come and join us!

EVERYDAY LIFE WITH USTA

The summer issue of the USTA Magazine is dedicated to the everyday life. We will take a look at it from philosophical, architectural, cultural and, of course, culinary perspective. We bring you both a dose of reflection, like our material on zero waste, and homey, summer treats. 

SOMETIMES AT THE OFF FESTIVAL

This year OFF Festival will bring you not only fantastic concerts (M.I.A., Charlotte Gainsbourg or Ariel Pink), but also the Literary Café where you will be able to meet with writers, listen to radio plays and discuss literature. We interviewed Sylvia Chutnik – the curator of OFF’s literary corner. 

OUR EDEN

After months of intense work we can proudly announce that we have opened our own bistro. We serve vegan food, third wave coffee, orange wines and we have a small greenhouse with succulents, and artisanal ceramics – everything we love most gathered in one place. This is our Eden. Come visit us in Saska Kępa!

GLASS, DESIGN AND QUOTES

Collectors in Poland – we checked what they are gathering, and why and how much their collections gain in value. We described people with a broad spectrum of interests, ranging from Scandinavian design, GDR glass, and Polish photography to plastic beads and toys from Olympia flea market. In the new USTA Magazine we bring you interviews with specialists in collecting like Maurycy Gomulicki or Adam Leja.

BEAST

With a grain of his own unique contrariness, he readily emphasizes that in case of Category 5 hurricane, he would remain sitting in his living room, eating peanuts and contemplating nature’s frenzy. Meet Rodrigo Larios, architect, artist and master in living.
