The first records about Bukowina Tatrzanska are from the 17th century. The first settlers were preoccupied mainly with farming and sheepherding. In the beginning of the 20th century the place was of attraction to people of science, art and politics, fascinated by the beautiful views of Tatra mountains and the rich highlanders’ culture. In the same time, the Society of Bukowina Friends was established by the village lovers in order to help the inhabitants in Bukowina’s development. In 1928, thanks to the support of the Society, a Community House was built. It was a centre of the village’s cultural life. The Community House exists until now and is the only one Cultural and Educational Cooperative in Poland. It is known also abroad for its annual folk events: Sabala’s Tales and Highlanders’ Carnival.
