You have to options in Bieszczady: go and see around many places all of the old Ortodox and Catholic churches or go here, in Sanok and see many icons. Both options are good to choose. Museum in Sanok is the quickest one.

Everybody knows Icons, but the story behind them and the different influences are interesting. Several religions have used this way to show the religeous history.

The museum is small, but has wonderful exhibition. Of course icons are famous and fabulous, but it also features history as well as the largest collection of Zdzislaw Beksinski - famous Polish artist.

Icons from the 17th and 18th cent. are mostly low quality: too much Western influence. In Sanok museum they have a high quality collection of 15th and 16th cent. icons.

Enjoyed the hundreds of religious icons on display from the past centuries. So glad this museum is there as many of the Eastern Orthodox Churches were closed in Poland after WWII -1947. Ironic just off the parking lot of this museum is an Orthodox Church,...More
