    Very misleading name, because the icons are one of the constants of exposure people Museum, and also the non-self-supporting, because it's part of the art exhibition of the Orthodox. But anyway next to works by Beksiński is the most important collection of the historical Museum in Sanok. More than two hundred ancient examples of painting cerkiewnego collected from very often non-existent Greek Catholic churches and Orthodox from the South-East of the former Republic. For us normal fans something nice it's a pleasure to watch, but also a real treat for connoisseurs of this kind of painting and contemporary artists, whose trail of villages in recent years followed by a remarkable Renaissance. And it is a very demanding art direction in the genre canons, special technology and materials used (often quite expensive), big patience and even theological knowledge. Some of the exhibits even impress with their size, and is also to see a complete iconostasis. See these amazing things that simply should be a part for a real tourist.

    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.  more »

    Not anticipated that in Sanok we will meet as a rich collection of icons. Extensive exposure will satisfy the tastes of every connoisseur, and for those unfamiliar with the genre of art will be a huge and pleasant surprise and inspire you to further explore the art direction.
