Skansen in Nowy Sacz



 



Skansen in Nowy
Sacz-if
you want to see what life was like in Poland in
bygone eras
or if you just want to see something truly
picturesque, be
sure to visit the Ethnographic
museum(skansen in Polish) in
Nowy Sacz. This is an
outdoor museum whose mission is to
preserve and promote
rural architecture and traditions, and
which allows
visitors to explore all sorts of fascinating
monuments
within a small, bucolic setting. The oldest
structures
date back to the 17th c, while most buildings
date back
to the 19th c. All of the structures come from the
region
surrounding Nowy Sacz and taken together really do
create
the atmosphere of a small rural settlement where time
has
stood still. The centerpiece of the museum is a 17th
c
nobleman's manor house, where you can see how a
Polish
country squire lived a few hundred years ago.



 



More attractions



 



There is also a Lemko Orthodox church that was
removed
from an abandoned village and reassembled on the
museum
grounds. There are also farmhouses, peasant
cottages
featuring folk art painted glass icons, old
beekeeping
equipment, and a tiny windmill. A recent
addition to the
museum is something called the Galician
Small Town, where a
typical 19th c town from the Galicia
Region has been
recreated, including a town square with
an impressive town
hall.
