About the event

Slovakia’s rich history gave birth to rich culture and heritage. Icons are works of religious art found especially in Eastern Christianity and Slovakia has much to offer!

Its oldest icons are nearly 5 centuries old! Churches and galleries scattered across eastern Slovakia hide many treasures. A beautiful expression of faith and religion, Slovak icons hide fascinating stories and histories. The world is yet to discover their uniqueness, but you can get ahead of the curve with us!

Join Renata Bricka to explore this little-known puzzle of our ancestral heritage.
