Krakow: Czartoryski Museum Tour / Entrance with Krakow Card

1. Krakow: Czartoryski Museum Tour / Entrance with Krakow Card

The "Lady with an Ermine" portrait embodies the Renaissance ideal of an image as an illusion of natural vitality. Da Vinci managed to achieve this thanks to his detailed knowledge of anatomy, and his skill with light features. Combining these he was able to create a three-dimensional figure on the image plane. The original background, which was painted over in black in the 19th century, was also modeled with light just like the figure, which must have added to the impression of the model emerging from the shadows. The painting was purchased in Italy in around 1800 by Adam Jerzy, the son of Princess Izabela Czartoryska, and later donated to the Museum in Puławy. The portrait became the property of the Republic of Poland in 2016.

Highly recommended card, because it allowed us to enter the Czartoryski Museum even though the tickets were sold out. Then we used it to skip the line and enter all museums including, highly recommended

We went to see the Lady with an Ermine, but were blown away by the museum so well presented by the audio guide in Italian and the beautiful objects on display

One of the best museums I have ever visited, clean, beautiful, informative, and price was great

Very nice interiors and unusual exhibits show the strength of Poland

Excellent experience which gives you a lot of value.
