I would like to present samples of Polish folklore , rich of colors and ornaments . Folklore as art and design of ordinary people in my country is divided by 7 groups , regions . Then this styles are divided for smaller and other branches of this specific art.

Goralski style (Highlander style)

Polish mountains it is a specific place, pretty characteristic from  other ethnographic regions, distinguished by constant cultivation folklore culture. This is not folklore learned and artificially maintained, that folklore has been naturally transmitted to future generations. What’s more folklore from mountains is practiced in daily life.

In Poland, the Highlanders are divided into several groups, the differences between these groups, we can see the costumes and dialect. The largest city is called Zakopane . By visiting that place, at every step we can meet the elements of folklore in costumes, dialect and cuisine.
