Description

Just a short distance from Krakow lies the 932 mile (1,500 km) Wooden Architecture Route—a collection of 200 structures including churches, belfries, granaries, cottages, and houses. Remarkably well-preserved, this region gives a fascinating glimpse into the local culture of Polish village life.

There is a common local saying that goes, “Kazimierz the Great received a Poland made of wood but gave it back built of stone.” Despite this, most local carpenters in rural areas continued to use wood as the main material for construction. This material was cheaper, more available, and enabled people to be self-reliant.

As a result, wooden architecture prevailed in the countryside, where buildings were erected in harmony with the landscape. Nowadays many of the structures are still standing, robust, strong, and hundreds of years old, unrivalled anywhere else throughout Poland.

After journeying south through the countryside, you visit the most attractive and well-maintained sites. This tour gives a completely different perspective of Poland away from the usual tourist sites.

It turned out that I was the only one doing the tour so that was awesome. My guide was fantastic. Coming from the area he was able to tell me things only a local would know. Such a great relaxing pace and beautiful scenery. Thank you so much for the experience.
