Our guide was Maciek from Poland Active (https://www.poland-active.com/). We had a fantastic day, visiting different houses, the local museum and the beautiful church while admiring the gorgeous paintings. Maciek knew very well the area and some of the villagers, even allowing us to visit the house of a local lady quite famous for her painting skills.
