Podlasie is a historical region in the eastern part of Poland. Between 1569 and 1795 it was a voivodeship (state) with the capital in Drohiczyn. Now the northern part of the Bug River is included in the modern Podlaskie Voivodeship with the capital in Białystok.
In some place sit seems like time has stopped in the XIX century. It’s a very interesting part of Poland with a rich history.
I am taking you for a trip to Kruszyniany where you will see lots of fields, storks’ nests, and village houses from the XIX century.
There is also a Tatar Village, inhabited by the descendants of Tatars (Mongols) which came to this region over 300 years ago (http://www.kruszyniany.pl/szlak.html). Going farther to Korycin, you will see a beautiful garden, which is actually a village farm and a botanical garden with thousands of flowers and herbs (http://ziolowyzakatek.pl/).
And finally Białystok…watching the beautiful sunset will be a great end to this trip.
