Day trip from Krakow to Istabna – The Museum of Lace in Koniakow and workshop

Did you know that the largest lace in the World was made in a small village Koniaków, located in the southern part of Poland? Five lace manufacturers made the largest napkin, using over 8,000 pieces and 50 km of thread.

Istebna – a village known all over the world for its beautiful, handmade lace. The tradition from Koniaków dates back to the early 20th century. The uniqueness of Koniaków Laces lies in not using templates. Thanks to this, each design is unique and is distinguished by its unique charm, and its form and a multitude of elements depend entirely on the imagination of the lace maker. Tradition is passed down from generation to generation and is still cultivated. In 2017, it was inscribed on the National List of Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Our tour include assistance of local guide for whole tour, visit to private museum of lace with crochet demonstration and visit to exhibition of the largest lace in the world, entered in the Guinness Book of Records.

Optionally we organize also private workshops led by the master.
