“Romanówka” was established in the mid-nineteenth century as a holiday guesthouse in the then famous “Swiss style”. It has a log structure, and is panelled with painted boards an covered with sheet metal. It was a guesthouse until the 1970s, and in 1994, it was reopened as the Nikfor Museum, a branch of the District Museum in Nowy Sącz. Here, you can admire several dozen of the best paintings by Epifan Drowniak – a primitive painter known as Nikifor Krynicki. These works show the variety of artistic techniques he used, as well as the main topics of his interests. The villa is an eclectic building. In the middle of the front elevation there is a wide arcade based on carved columns, above which we can see a magnificent attic with a balcony with an openwork balustrade, topped with a triangular peak.
