Description

The Exposition of Icons in Žilina is the only one of its kind in Slovakia. In the premises you can find an exhibition of beautiful historical icons from the ancient past written by the masters of iconography.

Icons are sacred images, most often painted (written) on wood, originating from Byzantine culture. They depict holy figures, scenes from their lives, and biblical motifs. The icon is characteristic of Orthodox and Greek Catholic Christian temples - the churches.

Icons are not just works of art, but they also contain a strong spiritual message of great value and they are understandable also to laymen or unbelievers.
