Local experience in Poland!


Are you interested in culture and folk art? Would you like to discover real, not touristy Poland? If yes - Zalipie would be perfect for you! This is a famous (but not touristy) little village in southern part of Poland - located ca. 1, 5 hour drive from Krakow. This is a place which may be described as „artisty village". Almost everywhere you will see the local art culture - many houses are painted in typical Zalipie folklore style. Come with me and listen to stories of exceptional polish folk painters, visit locals at their homes and enjoy real Poland! This is really something exceptional - and not discovered by most „tourists" who come to Poland.

A Recent Review of this tour

I couldn't have been more pleased with the experience that Renata provided on our all day visit to Zalipie from Krakow. The village is a hidden jewel and not to be missed. The ladies of the town paint intricate and beautiful decoration of their houses and landmarks in this enchanting place. Renata's love and passion for sharing Polish culture and life in Krakow filled our day with memories that I'll never forget. She has an engaging personality and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with her.
