Alchemia5 Estery Street
Alchemia is an ideal observation point for the protagonists of Błędnik by Prus and Archipelag Rynek by Łuczak; from there they can peep at beautiful women doing their shopping at the Nowy Square. The romantic atmosphere of Alchemia is emphasised, among others, in Horror show by Orbitowski, Bezpański pies [A Stray Dog] by Grin or Chłopcy [Boys] by Łuczak. The protagonists of Marta Madera’s books Ślimaki z ogródka [Snails from the Garden] and Przyjaciele [Friends] always visit this place when they cannot sit in their favourite bar in Kazimierz – Smutny Banaś. In Andrzej Pilipiuk’s fantasy novel Kuzynki [Female Cousins], Alchemia is one of the potential places where the alchemist hides.
