4th International art festival “Carpathian Space 2019”, initiated by the National Operetta, will take place in Ivano-Frankivsk on May 3 to 5, 2019.
At the festival we will present a program that will include the “Observatory” film viewing and the exhibition of art photography “In the UNESCO treasury. The Kraków Saltworks Museum Wieliczka”, combining two pearls of UNESCO World Heritage in the single space.
The photo exhibition is presented courtesy of the Kraków Saltworks Museum Wieliczka, one of the largest mining museums in Europe. Its exhibition is located in the Wieliczka salt mine (135 meters deep) and in the Royal Saltworks Castle. Both objects were part of the single salt-making enterprise for seven centuries.

On the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the opening of the Marshal Józef Piłsudski Astronomical and Meteorological Observatory of the Warsaw University, the Polish Institute in Kyiv together with the Center of East European Studies of the Warsaw University invited Polish director Wiesław Romanowski to make the documentary film “The Observatory”, which tells the story of creation of this majestic building that was constructed in 1938 on the Pip Ivan mountain. Currently the observatory is being reconstructed, and at the time of its construction it was the most modern object of this kind in Poland and one of the two most modern mountain observatories in Europe.
