Zalipie, Poland

Adding Zalipie, Poland to our wanderlust bucket list.  This small village in South-Eastern Poland has an array of small wooden cottages painted in vibrant floral motifs.  Not very much goes unpainted in this hamlet.  Not only are are house exteriors painted but also churches, barns, wells, fences, fountains, bridges, dog houses, interiors and any surfaces available.  It is uncertain how this folk art tradition started but it certainly is worth a visit.
