Points of interest
Sanok’s Museum of Folk Architecture
This museum is Poland’s largest open-air museum of traditional architecture. There are around 120 historic buildings here and tourists can have a fascinating trip into the cultures of the nomadic Slavic groups, the Boyks and Lemks. Among the highlights are four timber churches, an early 18th-century synagogue, an inn, a school and even a fire station. The interiors of many cottages are furnished and decorated as they once were, while some buildings house exhibitions; one of these features a collection of 200 icons.
The Lubomirski Castle
Located in the Old Town of Rzeszowe, the castle was built at the end of the 16th century by the owner of the city – Nicholas Spytek Ligęza. In the second half of the 17th century the Lubomirskis expanded the castle and encamped it with a stone wall with bastions. The building has a quadrate structure with the courtyard in the centre and the high gate tower from the west, surrounded by the quadrilateral bastion fortification. In the years 1985 – 1993 the building of the castle was completely restored and now it houses the District Court as well as artistic events and open-air performances
