About location

The Galician Town in Nowy Sącz is a replica of buildings from the end of the 19th century. Originally located at main town square, they include the townhall, a nobleman's residence, burghers’ houses, the fire station and two chapels: of St. Florian and St. John of Nepomuk. The Nowy Sącz open-air museum exhibits furnished houses of Lendians, Nowy Sącz highlanders, Pogorzans, Lemkos, Germans and Romani as well as a nobleman mansion, a community school, rural industry facilities, chapels and crosses. On the premises there are also three re-opened churches: Roman Catholic, Greek Catholic and Evangelical-Augsburg. An ever increasing number of workshops as well as educational and academic activities takes place in the museum town and open-air museum.
