Reviews

Zalipie is beautiful and embodies folk tradition of the region. I didn't know the feeling of being inside a painting before - now I know and it feels great. If you have the chance to visit Zalipie village go there - it is really a fairy-tale place. We had an awful weather and it rained a bit but the beauty of the houses is seen even in such conditions.
Adam
The House of Painters is really unique. Covered in painted flowers, gives you a good feeling about this unique village and its art. You can buy nice souvenirs here. Wegiełzów is a great facility for a weekend getaway. A professionally made open-air museum on a vast area. I recommend it to everyone. It is a very interesting place.
