Summary:
Podlachia lies almost on the border between Bielorussia and Poland. It is a meeting place between Eastern and Western cultures, a unique blend of orthodoxy and Roman catholicism. In this remote area, the isolation of most villages enables pagan beliefs and practices to resist the teachings of the Orthodox Church. In Grabouka, the Holy Mount is the most revered pilgrimage for the Orthodox community. The Transfiguration Festival takes place on August 19th every year. Thousands of pilgrims come and drink the holy water rising from the foot of the hill. Beliefs and customs are preserved and transmitted by the Szeptuchy (the Whisperers), who are considered witches and healers all in one.
