It is unique museum of ikons, which are painted in Greek-Vizantnian style. The situation - a small city Suprasl in Podlasie Region. One of the Musts in the area.

A very special museum created to accommodate icons collected from smugglers (over 300 pieces). In the season the reservation is neccessary, at least one day in advance. The rooms are small so the entry is limited. Definitely worth to get a guide (then it takes...More

It's an unusual place to visit... only with a tour guide (they do have English speaking ones). Fascinating stories, beautiful icons and wonderful lights. It's busy during the spring - autum, so you better call them to book a visit. Well worth the time! Next...More
