Dyed and decorated Easter eggs are called pisanki
in Poland. The tradition of egg decorating for Easter goes back centuries. Pisanki can vary by region, just as traditional Polish dress can, and designs and coloring techniques have been typically passed down from mother to daughter. Eggs were once a part of Polish pagan tradition and still symbolize spring, renewal, fertility, and eternity.
Easter in Poland is an important holiday marked with fairs, markets, special foods, and traditions. During this time, Polish Easter eggs can be purchased from fairs and markets. Some souvenir shops that specialized in traditional Polish crafts carry pisanki year-round.
