Some villages in my region: first the old harbour town of Damme, six kilometres northeast of Bruges.

Quote:
In the 13th century, Damme was the port for Bruges, to which it was linked by the river Reie. The river has now been canalised into the long, straight, treelined and picturesque Damse Vaart, which continues across the Dutch border to Sluis. The line of the town's star-shaped fortifications can still be traced by lines of tall poplar trees and in places by a moat. It was the site of the Battle of Damme, fought on 30 and 31 May 1213.

Another nice town is Lissewege, a village and a subdivision in the municipality of Bruges. Famous for the medieval abbey and the fantastic old church, stop at the pelgrimage route to Santiago De Compostela.

Poland
Zalipie
Zalipie, Poland, a village about 40 miles east of Krakow. Around 20 houses are adorned with floral paintings in the style of a famous ceramics artist, Felicja Curylowa, who lived in the village. Today, local women are taught how to paint in her style and anything that can be painted.

Honestly, I don’t have any idea.
But it looks to me like it’s from the Middel Ages.
