Biskupizna is an ethnographic microregion in the south-western part of Greater Poland province, made of 12 villages in the vicinity of Krobia. Its name comes from the Polish word for bishop – biskup, as that area was the domain of Poznań bishops from the Middle Ages until the partitions in late 18th century. Thus the microregion developed separate customs and ethnographic features. The most important manifestations of its cultural heritage are traditional outfits, dialect, instruments, songs, dances and rituals. Cultural traditions of Biskupizna were listed as Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 2016.
