Description

One of the oldest regional galleries in Slovakia is the Šariš Gallery in Prešov. It is located in an originally Renaissance house, built around 1600. The Šariš Gallery has the status of a regional gallery of the Prešov Self-Governing Region and manages one of the highest quality and most interesting gallery collections in Slovakia.

Šariš Gallery was founded in 1956, but its exhibition activities began only a year later. The gallery focuses mainly on northeastern Slovakia, but also seeks the work of artists from all over eastern Slovakia.
