..., 29 kilometres north-west of Cracow, is "the longest" village in Poland (the main street is 9km long) and it has recently become famous thanks to a series of aerial view photos:

Sułoszowa

The village is located near Ojcowski National Park and Pieskowa Rock (XIV century cliff castle).

Like a shtetl, on two sides of a long road. Quite a lot of villages like this in PL.

Since it's so common, perhaps it's shetls that are like Polish villages; )

Such lining of houses in the countryside is quite common in villages around the place where I live.

I really can't stand this. It just creates endless urban sprawl, and means that these villages have no real 'centre'.

When in high school, one of my mates came from there. I even spent a week at his house/farm during summer holidays. And he invited us to a sleigh ride - kulig - one winter. The village is conveniently situated close to Ojcowski National Park and Pieskowa Skała Castle, with wonderful views and great trails for hiking.
