Bardejov is located in the part of Europe, where west meets the wild east. Walk up the main square, pass the beautiful town hall and go straight to the other end of the square. The building at the right corner houses the small but exquisite Icon museum. The entrance is from the right side of the building, not from the... More

Wow. If you like icons like I do, you'll love this place. They have 2 floors chock full of icons dating back to the 16th century (maybe even 15th...). It's just really nicely laid out, and there's enough basic information in English so I knew who I was looking at, and from when. The icons are beautiful, and they have... More

I visited an impressive collection of icons painted on wood worth seen and studied. I saw icon with rare iconography scenes. The circumcision of the Lord is one of them.

Nice and big collection old icons of Slovakia. This collection is unique and gives a good impression of the icons in wooden churches in this region.

This is an absolute must. We had seen 10 churches by the time we visited and we were so enthralled by the icons in this museum. What a treasure to be able to see the beautiful art from the 1400s to the present.

The museum is located next to the church and is very interesting. When travelling we always visit museums telling local history and this is one of them.
