Are cafés Małopolska’s pubs?

Whatever good there has ever been in pub culture is alive in the Kraków cafés. The concept that discussing everything that matters over a cup of steaming infusion of ground coffee beans was born in the head of a Pole, even if residing in Vienna, and he was provided with beans by the King of Poland, therefore it’s only right to say that we are the ones who gave the world café culture.

Long time no seed: grape harvest in Małopolska.

These were monks who introduced grapevine to Małopolska in the early Middle Ages. Vineyards thrived through centuries, though they were plagued by cold periods, natural disasters, and wartime damage. Later the drab Orwellian days of the people’s republic under the communist thrall were ruthless to viniculture, as this “bourgeoisie invention” was by all means inappropriate class-wise. Little wonder that the region’s wine production, hailed for centuries for its excellence, dried up. More

Where sheep roam.

The largest 21st-century transhumance had the shepherds walk their sheep, sheepdogs, donkeys, and horses for around 10 miles each day, making them cover over 1200 km (750 miles) along the arch of the Carpathian Mountains during the season. The route started in Romania and continued across the territories of Ukraine, Slovakia, and Poland to end in Czechia. The sheep first walked this route centuries ago. It was discovered and perfected by Wallachians, a sheepherding people who, around the 15th century, arrived in Poland from Transylvania with their rich culture that is still very much alive in Highlander tradition.
