"Do you speak Kashubian?" Krokowa Local Custom Tip by evaanna
Krokowa Local Customs: 2 reviews and 2 photos
Many of the local people in the area of Krokowa are the descendants of the Kashubians, the autochthonous population of Pomerania. As I have already shown on my Hel and Jastarnia pages, streets are given dual names in those places, Polish and Kashubian. But the inhabitants of Krokowa have gone one step further. The words under the colourful picture that is located on a house in the centre of the village are in Kashubian only. I can more or less guess what the first word means as 'gbur' means a farmer or peasant in Kashubian so the word must be an adjective derived from it. But 'mol'? No idea. They seem to assume everybody knows Kashubian. This word has been an obsession with me ever since I saw it. Please help if you can.
Update: I know now - 'mol' means food, so there must be a restaurant there serving peasant food during the season. Thanks Izabella (isabellandruszk).
