Special Events & Highlights
The strój Krakowski (Kraków costume) is a favorite among the various regional costumes of Poland. It has come to symbolize the traditional costume of Poland. Women wear white shirts with broad sleeves and collars decorated with lace, colorful vests with sequins and hand-crafted rich embroidery, strings of coral beads, flowery skirts in bold patterns, partly covered with white lace aprons, and wreaths of flowers with multi-colored ribbons in their braided hair. Featuring two of the sweetest and most loved young ladies that carry on our strong Polish heritage.
Pacaya Volcano - Guatemala
Definitely a bucket list item! Just like skiing and mountaineering are a part of the culture of the Swiss Alps, volcano hiking is a huge part of the culture in Guatemala. The country has 37 officially named volcanoes—three of which that are still active. It is not uncommon to be driving by one of these in the distance and seeing a puff of smoke pop out from its peak.
