The Owl Treehouse. A beautiful cabin cozily settled up in mature linden trees. Resting on a platform about 8.3 feet above the ground, it is a perfect place for sleepovers during warm seasons. Located in Lithuania.
The royal line of Mieszko ruled Poland until the end of the 14th century, when they died out. This forced Poland to look for their new
king elsewhere, and after a brief political romance with Hungary, the
Polish Queen Jadwigamarried the Grand Duke of Lithuania,
thereby giving rise to long-lasting union between the two nations. The
alliance eventually evolved into creation of one country: the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in 1569.
The 150 or so years between the beginning of the 16th century and the first decades of the 17th century went down in history as the Polish Golden Age.
The country’s political system evolved into an early democratic
monarchy andbecame one of the first multicultural states in history,
with minorities’ rights protected by the Union’s laws. The Commonwealth
was one of the biggest political entities in Europe as well as one of
the most influential, both culturally and politically.

Union because of the secret protocol that was part of the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact.
