Multicultural heritage of Southern Poland

We would like to present you multicultural heritage of Southern Poland. Because this region, known as Lesser Poland, was a melting pot of cultures.

Until WWII Poland was a multicultural country. So people of different cultures and religions had been coexisting for centuries. Jews, Orthodox, Greek-Catholics, Gypsies, Catholics lived together in small villages. That’s why you can find numerous monuments testifying about that. During one day trip you can learn a lot about multicultural heritage of Southern Poland.

There is a unique museum dedicated to Gypsies in Tarnów. You should visit it because very few places offer insight into this culture. To the north from Tarnów there is an exceptional village called Zalipie. Its inhabitants every year paint their houses in floral patterns.

There is an outstanding synagogue and Jewish cemetery in Bobowa. You will also find numerous wooden churches all around this area. Some are even inscribed to UNESCO list.
