A small ancient village in South-Eastern Poland, Zalipie, is definitely one of the country’s top tourist attractions. Not because it has five-stars hotels or massive glass buildings, but on the contrary, due to its small wooden cottages, which are painted in the most vibrant colors.

The secluded village of Zalipie is home to a charming tradition.  Over a century ago the women of the village began to paint their houses: however, it was not the single, uniform color one might expect from a traditional and conservative society.

Important notice:
This tour will be held only if in the group will be at least 2 participants.

Dom Malarek
Zalipie- colourful village, is famous for the decoration of its houses, with cheerful paintings on the walls and stoves, and crepe-paper flowers, paper-cut designs and hay spiders. This tradition has existed in the Powiśle Dąbrowskie region since the end of the 19th century. Flowers were also painted on external walls of peasant cottages and farm buildings, on fences, wells and even kennels. In Zalipie, there are now around 20 painted houses. The best known example of this original folk artwork is the homestead of Felicia Curyłowa (currently a branch of the District Museum of Tarnów), a Zalipie painter whose painting was already known in the period between the wars.

During our tour, you will get to see a number of decorated houses, a museum, and a small shop with unique hand made souvenirs.

Wonderful tour, one of a kind experience

Our day in Zalipie was the highlight of our long weekend in Krakow. My 26-year old daughter and I took dozens of photos of the many houses we were able to see. The interiors were extra special, as was the opportunity to meet one of the artists. Mathew was knowledgeable and a terrific guide; he knew exactly which houses to visit and where we could get up close. So glad we decided to take the tour, we would have not met the artist or seen so much on our own.
Great Village to visit with a great tour company

This was a great opportunity to see some of the Polish country-side in addition to visiting the beautiful village of Zalipie. My guides were great - very knowledgeable and interested in making sure that I got the most out of my trip. We stopped for lunch in great place for traditional Polish food.
