My name is Piotr Kulczycki and I'm a travel photographer. On this website you can find some pictures I've taken during my travel.
I live in Poznan (Poland), where I run my web design agency - Crafton. I have been taking pictures since childhood. Eight years ago when I bought my first DSLR, photography became very important part of my life. I tend to spend all my free time travelling. I love the stunning architecture of Istanbul, the tidy countryside landscape of England as well as modern metropolitan area of New York. But still my favourite places are: New Zealand, Iceland and Nepal. I hope I will have a chance to come back and see these amazing places soon…. After visiting major spots in Europe and in Asia, now is time to see South America. Stay in touch.

01/07/14: São Paulo is the largest city in Brazil and the world's ninth largest city by population. City is known for its unreliable weather, the size of its helicopter fleet, gastronomy, severe traffic congestion and skyscrapers. Historically attractive to immigrants it's one of the most diverse cities in the world. Here are the new photos from my last trip to Brazil!
01/06/14: As with many Asian cities, Phnom Penh has undergone tremendous change in recent years, with new businesses and hotels opening off the back of the tourism boom. However, this development has not come at the expense of the capital’s historic attractions. The city has, to me, a very different vibe from all the other cities in Southeast Asia which I’ve travelled to. Phnom Penh is much more than just an old city with a rich culture and vibrant lifestyle. Only over 40 years ago, the city experienced very traumatic occurrences which changed its people and the whole country for good. During the genocide in the 1970s, around two million people were killed by the Khmer Rouge. That made a huge impact for the whole city and country, which easily can be see even today. Visiting Phnom Penh, you can’t just miss Choeung Ek Killing Fields and Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. These are the most important memorials showcasing the frightening history of Cambodia. But the city is slowly moving on and developing. There are many vibrant markets in the city, where you can buy all sorts of exotic things. The Central Market is an art deco building shaped in the form of a cross with a big central dome. This is the place to buy gold jewellery, antique coins, fake name-brand watches and other such items. The best place in the city to buy exotic fruits and vegetable would be Orussey Market. Sisowath Quay is an attractive boulevard running along the banks of the Tonlé Sap and Mekong River.
01/05/14: The Iguazú Falls is one of the great natural wonders of the world and the most important tourist attraction in Argentina. There are more than 270 falls in an area where cliffs and islets are scattered in a half moon. The Iguazu Falls stretch in width for 2.7 kilometres. Their height varies between 60 metres and 82 metres, which makes these waterfalls taller than Niagara Falls and twice as wide. Iguazu Falls are located in subtropical rainforests that are host to hundreds of rare and endangered species of flora and fauna. That was definietly must see for me in South America! Enjoy the photos!
01/04/14: Before I visited Sri Lanka I didn’t expect how diverse and beautiful this country is. Sri Lanka is an island country in the Indian Ocean. This country has a lot to offer: amazing beaches, ancient temples, elephants, mountains and of course tea plantations. I spent there only one week, which definitely wasn’t enough, but now I’ve got a good reason to go back ;-). This month I present you the first gallery from Central Province. In a few months I’ll publish the second gallery from West Coast. So please visit my website regularly!
01/03/14: My first impression about Dubai was that this is extremly nice city to live, but it’s not the easiest place in the world to travel in. Being in Dubai you need to forget about walking. The distances are huge and public transportation is not efficient at all. I visited Dubai early January, so the weather was perfect, but it gets really hot in the summer. Dubai is famous for the tallest building in the world - Burj Khalifa. That was definitely highlight of the trip. But I need to confess that I was a bit disappointed that the viewing deck is located only on level 124 - so not near the top… Dubai is also famous for its hotels. Burj Al Arab and Atlantis are incredible structures. Unfortunately you can’t just walk in and visit them without booking. I hope you will enjoy new gallery from UAE.
01/02/14: Last month I spent a few days in Armenia. I have to admit that January is not the best time of the year to visit the country. It was freezing cold, around minus fifteen degrees. Despite of the cold weather I was able to enjoy the capital of the country and a few other towns in the area. People call Yerevan a 'true jewel of early Soviet architecture’ and I guess this describes city very well. There are plenty worth visit tourist attractions in Yerevan like: Opera house, Republic Square, or The Cascades. I also made a few day trips and visited Garni Temple, Geghard Monastery and obviously famous Khor Virap, an Armenian Apostolic Church monastery located in the Ararat valley.
01/01/14: It has been a year since my trip to Nepal. I need to say that this small country in Southern Asia is still my favourite country in the world. People are so friendly, towns are so exotic and views are breathtaking. In Nepal there are eight of the world's 10 highest peaks. Pokhara was my first stop in Nepal. The town is a gateway to Annapurna area. I have done many great treks in this subrange of the Himalaya and enjoyed amazing views. I just felt in love with places like Sarangkot, Phewa Lake, or Begnas Lake.
