Skansen in Kłóbka

Klobka is called “The Pearl of Kujawy” due to its location among hills, forests and lakes. In this charming landscape situates an open-air museum with over a dozen objects of rural architecture, the oldest of which come from the 18th century.

 Except three farmhouses consisting of cottages, barns, pigsties, stables and granaries there are also old craft workshops reconstructed in the museum – forge, oil mill with pottery and windmill. In the centre of an open-air museum there is an old inn, school building and fire station.



Various kinds of fences, wells, hives, dugouts and road­side shrines are complements of the landscape. A unique atmosphere is created by the yards with traditional varie­ties of flowers and also by farmlands and orchards among which live domestic and farm animals.


At the museum, by the banking-up of Lubienka river there is a manor house from the middle of the 19th century where Maria Wodzinska lived. She was the only official fiancée of Fryderyk Chopin.


The climate of old residence is captured in the interior of the manor house as well as life and work of Maria Wodzinska.


Additional attractions of the open-air museum are an­nual: the last Sunday of June, the first Sunday of Au­gust and the second Sunday of September folk festivals ‘The life of the old village’.The traditional workshops and already forgotten activities come back to life then. To the rhythm of folk music, regional dances are shown. The main attractions of festivals are thematic perform­ances that illustrate old customs and solemnities.



The Open-air Museum in Klobka is located in the cen­tre of Poland, 6km from motorway A1 junction near the trunk road 91 (80km north from Lodz and 25km south from Wloclawek).
