There’s a unique museum in the Radomysl Castle – the Museum of Ukrainian Home Icons. They were painted in XVII-XX centuries. Its exhibition of Christian art objects, named “The Soul of Ukraine”, is the biggest one in Ukraine. Today they are open for visitors of the Museum’s exhibition halls where has been collecting and saving from destruction over 5000 home icons for 15 years.

This collection represents the philosophy of thousand Ukrainian families from different regions of the country audits evolution throughout centuries. But in all times the Ukrainian home icons have been family heirlooms painted for individual spiritual needs of every person in family. Here you can find home Iconostasis /wall of icons/, small travelling icons, Cossack icons, Hutsul folding icons, the icons painted on canvas, casted of metal and carved on wood and also ancient wooden and stone sculptures. Travelers call all museum exhibits as “orphan” icons, thrown out of houses and saved from destruction in the times of aggressive atheism. Some of them were damaged when faith of God was persecuted.

Paper Mill Reviving good traditions of the paper mill of Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, the manual production of paper, practiced by Orthodox monks 400 years ago, for further book-publishing, was restored in the Castle. The Castle’s paper production line uses the same equipment that was used in XVII century. The paper made in Radomysl was used for printing “Chasoslov” (The Book of Hours”) – the first book ever published in Kiev, in 1616.

The Castle’s Landscape Park attracts those, who are sick and tired of large cities’ noise and want to feel their connection with nature. Here you can see rocks, trees and river waterfalls, all of them stretched across a large distance. Only here you can see a dozen of unique kinds of iris, bred and granted to the Park by Igor Khorosh, a Ukrainian plant breeder; pink and white water lilies, English roses, magnolias and also a water-nut, Trapa rossica, enlisted into The Red Book. All exhibits are genuine
