The best things about Poland
Zalipie, the painted village
The custom of decorating rural chambers with flowery paintings comes from the late nineteenth century, when the residents of the village began to decorate the interior of huts with tissue paper flowers, cut-outs and spiders of straw, hanging under the ceiling, as well as the walls being painted with flowers.
This cheerful place, sometimes balancing on the borders of kitsch, is a fantastic place to discover. The people are open and willing to share their passion with guests.
