Czartoryski Museum

The Lady with an ErmineThis museum in Krakow is one of the oldest in Poland. The exhibits presented come from the private collection of Princess Izabella Czartoryska. The most important piece in the museum is a painting by Leonardo Da Vinci 'The Lady with an Ermine'(last photo). Another important painting is 'The Landscape with Merciful Samaritan' by Rembrandt. The museum has also some trophies of war, military equipment, ancient works of art and an Egypt exhibition with mummies. The building looks a bit old on the outside but it's worth to have a look inside.

I have seen some paintings of Leonardo in Louvre Paris. It will be interesting to see his sculpture in this polish museum. Is it a permanent exhibit or has a time frame.

Your blog is very useful. I am planning a trip to eastern europe for next summer, the info from your blog will be useful. I just found a new travel site you might like -baraaza.com. You can review destinations, upload pics and get info for your next trip. I think you should add some of your info, it is very useful.

yup, you right...
this place is worth to visit for. It is not only for the good paint or other arts there, but because of its history too.

I think the building is as beautiful as the art inside. I love the old architecture.

ahh, to have a museum like this to wander around for an hour or so would be bliss. Here in Singapore we are lacking such beauty and history.
