Well Isn’t Zalipe Just The Sweetest Little Town You Ever Did See

By Kate Auletta

In the tiny Polish town of Zalipe, a teeny tiny town northeast of Krakow, there remains an endearing tradition amongst residents. It all started back in the 19th century, when residents would whitewash entires houses to cover sooty exteriors, creating huge canvases on which to paint. Turns out, they like flowers in Zalipe.

The town’s most famous painter, Felicja Curlowa, passed away in 1974. Her three-room farmhouse is open to the public today as the Felicja Curyłowa Farmstead Museum, where every flat surface is covered in flowers (if it’s locked, Lonely Planet notes, go to the house across the street at Zalipe 196 for the key).

In basic sum, if this isn’t the definition of darling, we don’t know what is.
