Painted Cottages Of Poland: Beautiful House Decorating Tradition That Survived To These Days


Małopolska

We bet you heard about cottages from Poland, especially from a small village of Zalipie located in southern Poland. Luckily while you have been consuming internet, tv, trying to follow the latest world-wide trends, there were people that were keeping this old custom alive, hoping young ones will eventually get some interest in their own history.

Houses were usually decorated with typically Slavic patterns, flowers, however each Slavic country has a different depiction of flowers and this one is Polish.

These houses are not only decorated from the outside, but in fact they are really…and we really mean REALLY decorated on the inside too. Interiors are completely painted in rich flower patterns and that is kind of a standard in rural regions across Eastern and Central European countries, mostly Slavic ones.

“Ethnographers are sure that the tradition followed a much older custom of applying simple symbols that were no longer covered so quickly with the soot from the furnace – therefore the women could let their imagination and their artistic needs flow,” writes lamusdworski.
