Here at the Blue Beetroot you will get a real taste of rural Poland’s history. We have restored the 18th century barn to its former glory with wooden beams, traditional vaulted ceilings and hand made furniture… adding just a few contemporary touches to make your visit luxurious.
The Legend of the Blue Beetroot : In Poland around 1791 the fields of Lower Silesia near Boleslawiec were all planted with beetroots. One of the most popular uses for the beetroot was moonshine! The alcohol was secretly brewed in the cellars of the barn (today it only contains fire wood to keep our Boutique B&B hotel guests extra warm). Only a few locals knew that the cart of beetroots coming from the barn hid a secret stash of moonshine below. The story goes that one winter as the farmer left the yard the horses bolted and slipped badly on the icy road. The whole lot, farmer, cart, horses, moonshine and the beetroots fell into the pond. Despite dredging, everything mysteriously disappeared without a trace...
The story passed down by locals for generations says even now a single blue beetroot will occasionally float to the surface of the pond, it is a strange blue colour and of course it is completely impregnated with alcohol!!!
