 Project FPU 19-521-01756  "Reinstalation of  The Exposition of Folk Lore"





All these displays are located in Vila Rákoczi, which was built at the beginning of the 19th century. The National Historical Display presents folk dresses, home production and products of folk craftsmen from Upper Šariš. It provides a vivid picture of the lives of previous generations. Folk dresses are documented there in development stages. Crafts are installed at two levels. They capture the development of crafts and production technology. The biggest attention is paid to pottery (making clay containers), hat making, shoe and boot making, gingerbread making (decorating gingerbread making), and candle making; wood processing is represented mainly by shingle making, box making, basket making, etc. The display also presents sacral folk arts, plastic art pieces and paintings on glass. As part of the National Historical Display, there is a smaller, permanent display called 'The History of Bardejovské Kúpele' and 'Pharmacy Display', opened in 1996. Furniture and equipment of a pharmacy from the 19th century is installed in an area of 50 sq m.

  • The oldest preserved folk dress from 1850

  • The oldest beehive in Slovakia from 1691
