Church of St. Cosmas and St. Damian in Bartne

Reviewed By BernardS724 - Toulouse

Cette vieille église en bois et bardeaux , est devenue un musée ( l'église actuelle du village se trouve à quelques centaines de mètres de là ).
Décorée de mobilier du 18e siècle avec des icônes magnifiques, cette église ou plutôt ce musée , mérite le déplacement car elle est superbement située dans une campagne belle et aux vieilles fermes typiques .
Je dois préciser que l'entrée est payante ( mais à un prix dérisoire ).
Une bonne balade en perspective !

Skansen Wsi Pogorzanskiej

Reviewed By endrju_74 - Ipswich, United Kingdom

There are two separate attractions in Szymbark, that form two branches of "Muzeum Dwory Karwacjanów i Gładyszów", based in Gorlice: Exhibition Centre "Kasztel w Szymbarku" and Skansen Wsi Pogórzańskiej. This two are separated by narrow road, that leads from main road (national route 28) towards Ropa river. This narrow road is the best place to park your car, although there's more parking spaces available opposite the main and only entrance to Skansen (open air museum) - be carefull thou, as main road in Szymbark could be very busy and dangerous. Main entrance from main road, so if you leave your car in the side road you will have to walk back. Ticket office in first building on the right, also a gift shop there. There's 15 numbered and described objects (mainly houses, number 15 is a cross) listed on a small map available from ticket office.Three of those objects are on lower Terrace, not visible and not pointed by any signs from upper Terrace - very easy to miss. Some houses are only availabe to enjoy from the outside, while some of them are open, and there's a chance to walk inside, for some extend. There's about three of them with organised Exhibitions, one of them is on World War I. Definitely worth a visit.

Greek Catholic Church of Protection of Our Most Holy Lady in Owczary

Reviewed By endrju_74 - Ipswich, United Kingdom

One of sixteen orthodox churches inscribed onto UNESCO list, as a: "Wooden Tserkvas of the Carpathian region in Poland and Ukraine". Hard to get to, as no public transport, apart from school buses. Small car park around last bus stop in the valley - tarmac road goes only for few hundred meters more, and then it's only a dirt track. Thanks to Małopolskie tourist board there's a guide waiting for tourists (free of charge, as already paid by the board), always ready to tell the history of the place. If the guide isn't there - theres a phone number on the notice board (same as here on TripAdvisor), and - within reasonable hours - guide will be with you in few minutes, opening the temple for you. Quite unusual situation here, as this building was built as a greek catholic church, and now - after long break - still serves that purpose, plus it is shared for catholic community as their branch church. Unusual church, unusual village, visit worth every effort.

Historic Town Hall - Ratusz

Reviewed By Krzysiek_chrispu - Krakow, Poland

Ratusz świetnie się prezentuje z zewnątrz, zaś wewnątrz można zwiedzić niewielką wystawę (przy punkcie informacyjnym) oraz wyjść na wieżę. Można z niej podziwiać bliską i daleką okolicę Biecza. Wejście jest płatne. Galeryjka widokowa jest dosyć wąska.

Stara Basn - a reconstruction of the fortified castle

Reviewed By Joe_Conner88 - Union City, Tennessee

I was just passing by in my way to Krynica but this place turned out to by the main attraction of the trip! Very original and iteresting place. The staff was very kind and passionate about everything they do there. Talked with the owner and he dedicated like half his life to build this place. You can walk on walls, shoot with bow and even visit a dungeon (not for a faint heart, though). Tons of fun! Not to be missed if you're in the neighborhood.

Grease makers farm museum/Zagroda maziarska

Located in a small village of Łosie this is kind of a small open air museum, branch of "Muzeum Dwory Gładyszow i Karwacjanow" in Gorlice.. It occupies former farm, preserved as it was in 19th century, when it was a place for living for people, who made first lubricants and greases from primitive oil drilling rigs nearby, and then delivered them all over eastern Europe on horse drawn carriages.

Hidden between much newer houses. Very small but hughely interesting open air museum, organised in a small farm enclosure, showing life as it was in the late 19th century/first decades of 20th century in this part of Poland, when they discovered rock oil (same one we make diesel off this days), and ways they were selling and distributing it. Short drive leading to museum is restricted to locals only, car park opposite the drive, at the parish cemetery. There's only two building to be explored, third one serves as a ticket office/admin office. Guided tours only. Superb story telling by a lady, who guided us around. Hidden gem, worth a visit.

Muzeum Ziemi Bieckiej w Bieczu

Reviewed By Tomasz B - Białystok

Ekspozycje, zlokalizowane w kilku zabytkowych budynkach miasta sprawiają wrażenie nieco zapomnianych, podobnie jak i cały Biecz. Szkoda, ponieważ każdy znajdzie tu dla siebie coś ciekawego. I tak w podziemiu wieży ratuszowej mieści się średniowieczne więzienie oczywiście z nieodzownymi narzędziami tortur. "Kromerówka", przedstawia historię miasta. "Dom z basztą", to muzeum aptekarstwa. "Baszta Kowalska" prezentuje prace malarskie. Jednym słowem jest, co oglądać. Warto wstąpić, przynajmniej wybiórczo.
