Understood both in a wider and more narrow sense, burghers were always a strongly diversified social group, differing in terms of ethnicity, financial standing, professional situation, religious and national affiliation, as well as tradition and culture. High and low culture met and intersected in towns, while the mobility and entrepreneurship spirit of their inhabitants created a favourable environment for artists and thinkers. At times, the burghers would generate a culture of their own, along with their own customs and the systems of values and ethic norms considered an important feature distinguishing them from other social strata. In other cases, the burghers would be satisfied by merely adopting the cultural patterns of other groups, preferably the nobility and aristocracy. The Burgher Culture Trail connects the historical monuments of urban architecture and showcases the history of towns and their culture in the District of Jarosław.
