Krakow: Tour to Zalipie Village

Zalipie, a small rural village in south-eastern Poland, is famous for being one of the most unique villages in Poland. Some say it is also the prettiest one. Undoubtedly, it is a colorful and charmful place, famous for a local custom of painting the cottages with decorative motifs. Years ago, when the huts were poor and their walls were covered with soot from the stove, it was decided to decorate dirty and darkened interiors (firstly with only white paint). Later, colorful decorations appeared. Felicja Curylowa is considered to be the propagator of this art of decoration (museum of her is must see during the visit). Colorful decorations have become a local tradition and the hallmark of Zalipie. Over the last few years, this tiny town near Tarnow has become one of the biggest tourist attractions in Poland and it is frequently visited by foreign tourists.
