Sanok

Poland’s largest skansen

The oldest part of the city still has its original medieval urban layout.

The castle houses the regional museum with a fine collection of icons.

Poland’s largest skansen, considering the number of exhibits, was arranged 1.5 kilometers north of the centre. It is also Poland’s best open-air museum with about 100 traditional buildings (18th-20th cc.) such as farm houses, windmills, mills and Orthodox and Uniate churches. It provides insight into the culture of ethnic groups from Polish-Ukrainian borderland, once living in the eastern Carpathians and the Carpathian foothills.
