Pomerania – checked houses land

Kluki /Kloo-kee/ is a small village “at the end of the world”. You can’t really travel any further in this region called the Land of Checked Houses.  Kluki lies in Pomerania (Pomorze), next to Łebsko Lake . It’s most famous for the Museum of Slovinic Countryside  – 19th-century wattle and daub thatched cottages with beautiful gardens, spread on both sides of the road.

Trivia: The village was famous for peat digging practices, as it was the most popular fuel in the 19th century. Now the museum holds an event called “Black Wedding” during which the visitors can see the whole process of acquiring peat near the homesteads.

I’d like to give you some inspiration from my trip to Kluki and to the museum. I was lucky to see the exhibition of regional folk embroidery patterns which you can also see in my photos below:

I’ve fallen in love with these floral patterns and folk design. Here are some treasures with which you can stylize your homes (click on the photo to enlrage and find a link to the shop):

I always feel so uplifted when I’m surrounded by beautiful things and views. I’ve learnt to celebrate the moments that are feasts for senses. I had wonderful pancakes with blueberries and crème fraîche for dinner today. Best holiday dinner in the world. Have a lovely afternoon.
