Years ago, in rural Poland, roadside inns had played an important role in everyday life. They were the places to meet, dance, and celebrate,  or even to make business transactions. In addition to this, the roadside inns also provided accommodations for travelers, and a place to store their carts and  have their animals fed and cared for. Many roadside inns were situated along the main roads and trade routes, and  almost every village had its own inn.


Tastes of Poland – introduction

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

We would love to show you Poland that we personally know. The best way would be to introduce you to the local traditions and habits. For us, the taste is one of the most important part of each journey. During our tours we will do our best to show you Polish cuisine – such as your ancestors used to have in their everyday life.  Here you can see some local meals, restaurants or cooking events that we recommend. If you have any suggestions of tastes you remember or some that you would like to know; please write us in comment or in our forum. We will try to add it here!
