Zalipie – Beautiful Village Full of Flower Paintings

Are you wondering where this beautiful village is? Well, we will tell you about it. The village’s name is Zalipie. It is a small Polish village located in the southeast of Poland, and it’s covered in flower paintings. It’s started when somebody painted a flower on their ceiling in the 1800s. The stove and bad ventilation caused a soot mark. They tried to cover it up with flower painting. Then it continued as a tradition.

Today, every house, barn, and even bridge is covered in flowers. Since 1948, every spring there is a Painted Cottage Competition or Malowana Chata. The purpose was part of a movement to help Poland psychologically recover from the atrocities that the country suffered in World War II. This year, the competition will be held on June 17 and 18.
