Hi Bartlomiej!

You should preferably put your media queries at the bottom, you put yours at the top which is the reason as to why you failed.

The idea is that your general css should be added first, and then you add viewport specific styles at the bottom in your media queries. You then go from smaller to bigger, so the smallest media queries first and then you add bigger ones as you go.

I hope that helps :)

Hi Bartlomiej! Your media queries need to be at the bottom of your stylesheet or they will be overwritten. I hope this helps!
