Kosciol pod wezwaniem Najswietszego Serca Jezusowego (Jesus’ Holy Heart Church) in Bukowina Tatrzanska.

The church was finished in 1887 after a dozen years or so of construction work as it was built by just one man – Jedrzej Kramarz, a highlander from Bukowina. This self-educated builder was at the same time the architect and the contractor: he designed the church by himself, produced bricks and did the work of a bricklayer, a carpenter and a blacksmith. Finally, he sculpted the figures of saints to decorate the interior of the church and made the altars. Now the figures can be seen at the church entrance.

Historic "Zagroda Soltysow w Jurgowie" (The Soltys farmhouse in Jurgow)

It is an example of a poor farmhouse of Spisz region at the turn of the century. The rooms are situated in “enfilade” which means they are in a sequence, linked with doors. The main entrance, which is on the side of the building, leads to the vestibule, where farming tools and utensils were stored. The door from the vestibule leads to the kitchen ("izbecka") with a stove, shelves, benches and other furniture. The door from the kitchen leads to the chamber (“izba”) with a stove, benches, beds and a table, which was the main furniture of this room. The door of “izba” leads to a larder where food and clothes were stored. The windows of all the rooms are directed eastward; only "izba" has an additional window to the west for the purpose of watching the farmyard.

The farmhouse, built in 1861, is now a branch of the Tatra Museum.

It is open from Wednesday to Sunday from 10 am to 2 pm.


Zagroda Korkoszow (The Korkosz farmhouse) in Czarna Gora

It presents architecture and folk culture of Spisz region. The layout of the buildings is an example of development of a Spisz farmhouse: from a simple two-building farmhouse (a cottage and a stable) in the late XIX century, to a multi-building one which was completed in the period between the First and Second World Wars. Construction work was started by Alojzy Chyzny, who used the money that he had earned in America to build additional “Big chamber” with a larder. His daughter Elzbieta and her husband Sebastian Korkosz continued improvements. They added a stone stable, a cart-shed and a pigsty. The first treadmill in the village was installed in the old stable. The 1940s witnessed the last stage of expansion – addition of the “summer” or “guest” chamber with a separate entrance through the porch.
In 1950s the Korkosz family went to live permanently in Slovakia. In 1980 Sebastian Korkosz’s descendants donated the farmhouse to the Treasury of Poland requesting that a Spisz museum be set up there. After conservation and repairs, the Tatra Museum organized in the interiors an ethnographic exhibition of a rich Spisz farmhouse.

The Korkosz farmhouse is a branch of the Tatra Museum.

It is open from Wednesday to Sunday from 10 am to 2 pm.
