Roger Deakin in Baligród, Poland - between late 20th Century, 12:00 AM and early 21st Century, 12:00 AM

from Wildwood: A Journey Through Trees, page 229:

We buy breakfast in the baker’s and sit eating it on a bench in the chilly square beside an antique tank, its muzzle still aimed squarely at the Ukraine.  A multicoloured crocodile of school children clutching balloons on strings and singing a patriotic-sounding song issues from the school and straggles past us on an outing to the grimy old Orthodox church, onion-domed and now dilapidated.
