Wooden treasures of Lesser Poland

What are the wooden treasures of The Lesser Poland? There are over 200 wooden churches all over the region. Some of them are dated back to the 15th century and are on the UNESCO List.  So all of them are unique and beautiful. They are usually situated in picturesque small villages. Moreover they delightfully integrate into the landscape.

During one day tour you can visit the most interesting monuments in Lipnica Murowana and Binarowa. Additionaly you can visit orthodox wooden churches. They were inscribed to UNESCO list in 2013 (Owczary, Brunary, Kwiatoń). Both catholic and orthodox churches have unique architecture and atmosphere.

Alternatively it is possible to visit remarkable village of Zalipie. You can find there colorfully painted houses. That’s because there is an exceptional local tradition to decorate houses with hand painted flowers. Visiting those places is a great opportunity to travel around the less touristy parts of the region. Thanks to that you can admire ordinary villages spread over the hills of Lesser Poland. It is worth visiting because it is very picturesque. Moreover it is away from the bitten tracks. That’s why you can enjoy peace and quiet.
