    Painted gravestone of an artist

    The gravestone of the artist

    One of the famous painters from Zalipie was Felicja Curyłowa (1904-1974). Houses painted by her in her own yard have become even during her lifetime an ethnographic attraction massively visited by tourists. Curyłowa was also an active member of the community. She helped to glorify the village and sustain the local traditions.

    On a cemetery you can see a gravestone of Felicja Curylowa. It is the only tomb on the cemetery painted with flowers - to commemorate the artist.

    Visiting the village of Zalipie we met a young artist, a girl named Joanna. She is one of the youngest painters in the area. As a passionate the local culture and the student of cultural studies she told us a bit about the local customs. She is a treasure trove of knowledge about the culture of Zalipie. Her subtle paintings captivated me.

    I think my visit in Zalipie and knowledge about it without conversation with Joanna and her mother would habe been shallow.

    Even the priest can't escape

    A visit to the church is a must

    A visit to the village church will reveal that even the priest has been decorated. And painted figures decorate the inside of the church.

    During church celebrations, the congregation of Zalipie wear their regional costumes, making a wonderful splash of colour. It really is a must to see this, so time your visit to co-incide with Mass, which is not difficult in Poland.
