Sabala, whose real name was Jan Krzeptowski, was a 19th century storyteller, poet, musician and Tatra lover from Zakopane. If you happen to be in Zakopane around mid-August don't miss the Festival named after him that takes place in the Folk Centre (Dom Ludowy) of Bukowina then. It's a festival and competition of storytellers, folk musicians of the mountainous regions of Poland, with some local theatre added. Even if you don't speak Polish and can't understand the storytellers - some Poles wouldn't understand their dialects either - come to see it for the colourful folk costumes, the folk art fair in front of the Folk Centre and the parade afterwards. And they don't do it just for the tourists, or not only. Polish highlanders' culture is thriving against all odds. An unforgettable spectacle!
