Museum of Boyko Culture in Myczków

  Myczków 46      (+48) 13 463 15 69     05 Sep 2023
This unique museum gives a fine overview of the history, lives and customs of the Boykos (Bojkowie) - ethnic highlanders who lived across this region for five centuries before their expulsion in 1947. It was created on the initiative of local history teacher Stanisław Drozd, who began privately collecting paraphernalia related to Boyko culture (the culture of his ancestors) in the 1970s, in order to preserve the fading memories and legacy of these people.

Amongst the museum's extensive displays are old agricultural tools, household items, handicrafts, furniture, dishes, traditional fabrics, clothing made of linen or hemp canvas, as well as festive garments skilfully decorated with cross-stitch embroidery. There are also liturgical vessels from the former Orthodox churches, as well as crosses and fragments of iconostasis. Priceless documents, photographs, messages and manuscripts are plentiful.

In the basement of the museum is a gallery of works by local artisans, and there's also a little café where you can sip traditional Boyko coffee in fine surroundings. The museum is located on the green trail and is well worth an afternoon for anyone interested in the history and heritage of the Bieszczady Mountains. For an additional fee, a guide can be organised; group tours can be arranged if you call in advance.
