Kulig in Gorce Mountains, February 2006

Kulig (sleigh rides) is an old Polish winter tradition dating back to the days of the szlachta (nobility).

The kulig was a sleigh ride party organized among the Polish aristocracy. A cavalcade of horse-pulled sleighs and sledges went from one manor house to another, entertained everywhere with hearty meals followed by dances.
