Last month when we hosted our European friends we were visiting Basilica in Piekary Śląskie. While we were walking around the church we met a nice woman who was wearing Silesian folk costume. This costume dated back from 19th century. Women who live here wore these dresses sometimes at weekdays but mostly they wore on Sundays ans at National Holidays.

This traditional costume is not very popular now but only some old people have had those costume. This traditional folks costume is very expensive if you want to buy it. But it looks wonderfully and it,s our regional tradition strictly connected with my place. And I am jealous because my students can speak Silesian dialect but I can't. But the most important I can cook some delicious meat or red cabbage which come from Silesian cuisine, I don't come from this region as 97% people here but I live here so it is my small homeland.
