Bialystok

The Podlaskie region (also called "Podlasie" in Poland) is the most diversified province in Poland in terms of ethnicity and culture. Over the centuries, different ethnic groups and religions created a melting pot of cultures and traditions. This was an area historically co-inhabited by Belarusians, Tatars, Lithuanians, Russians, Ukrainians, Macedonians, Germans and Jews and, of course, the Poles. Out of the rich and diverse history of this region grew a perfect cuisine that combines simplicity, diversity and rich flavor.

We'll explore the unique elements and tastes of Podlasie with Aleksandra as she tours the city center of Bialystok, venture beyond the city with a visit to Łomza, a city over 1000 years old, and finishes her tour with a trip into the region's countryside to learn about the traditions that stem out of the region's folk culture.
