The variety and richness of Polish folklore reflect the historical and cultural diversity of the regions of Poland. Specific traditional dresses, dialects with sometimes very strong particularities, unique customs, regional food specialties, music and songs, crafts… Regional dances are a good example of this diversity: Poland has no less than five national folk dances (two of which became famous thanks to the genius of Chopin: the polonaise and the mazurka). The region of Podhale, near the Tatra mountains, is probably the one where the folklore is the most alive in Poland today. The Podhale mountaineers have preserved their traditions in everyday life, especially with their lively music, practiced by many local ensembles. In other areas the folklore can still be found in the countryside.
