Rotorua is actually, not only a fascinating geothermal site. You can also learn here about the indigenous people of New Zealand, the Maori. There are many places that exhibit Maori history and culture; and while being in New Zealand, it’s a good idea to get some knowledge about their art or legends.

Rotorua jest nie tylko fascynującym terenem geotermalnym. To także ważny ośrodek Maorysów, autochtonicznej grupy etnicznej Nowej Zelandii. Rotorua jest pełna miejsc, w których można zapoznać się z historią i sztuką Maorysów. Kultura Maorysów stanowi ważną część kultury Nowej Zelandii, dlatego warto poświęcić jej chwilę podczas zwiedzania. 🙂

  1. I find it very interesting experience to get to see and talk with Maori people. Did you stay overnight at Tamaki Maori village?

      1. 😀 Yes next time! How is the atmosphere there? Do you get the feeling that it is too much commercialized for the tourists or so? Or do you get an original feeling and experience?

        1. There weren’t so many people, but some of the places were for sure commercialized… so considering nature – great and pure experience, but about the culture – not everywhere… unfortunately…

  2. I love this statue. The Maori culture fascinates me… and I love the way New Zealand chose to respect, honor and highlight the Maori traditions, contrary to what Australia did to the Aborigines. This Maori experience is one of my best memories of New Zealand.
