Dances from Cieszyn
Both Polish and Czech audiences will recognize the familiar songs and polkas of the southwestern border city of Cieszyn.

This is reflected very well by the clothes they wore- the gold and silk thread embroidered dresses, specially forged belts and necklaces, and a heavily embroidered shirt.
