The city with one street causes everyone’s surprise

WARSAW, 14 May. Suloszowa, a Polish town of 6,000 in the Olkus Uplands, is nicknamed “the snake village” because of its quirky urban design with one central street.

Suloshova began garnering international attention this month after photos and videos of the bird’s eye view went viral on social media, including Facebook and Twitter.

Millions of people around the world have been fascinated by the unusual layout of a rural settlement: hundreds of houses on both sides of a single street, winding through colorful agricultural fields, as far as the eye can see. Each of the 5,819 residents, according to the 2017 census, lives on one street that stretches for more than 9 kilometers.

Aerial photos of Suloszova initially went viral in Poland, but two weeks ago a video taken by a drone garnered international attention. People were struck by the unique appearance of the village, surrounded by plots of agricultural land.

Thousands of Twitter users were amazed by the fact that they all built their home along the main road, rather than expanding beyond it. European media such as Mail Online and The Sun called the linear design of one street odd.

However, hundreds of Poles explained that having only one road through a village is not unusual for a Central European country, but from a bird’s eye view it looks impressive.

This is the usual layout of a traditional village in Poland, only this village is very long,” one person commented. And he added that its location in the middle of a natural mosaic of agricultural fields is definitely not seen every day. Other Facebook users noted that they had already seen this design of houses and fields in the Tuscany region of Italy.
