Kolomyia Museum of Pysanka is a unique museum, built especially for keeping and exhibiting works of pysanka painting (painting Easter eggs).The architectural construction, shaped as an Easter egg has become a Kolomyia visiting card that greatly attracts tourists. The museum owns a collection of 12,000 Easter eggs, brought from almost all Ukrainian regions. Besides, some of them have been sent from Pakistan, Shri-Lanka, Byelorussia, Poland, Check Republic, Switzerland, the USA, Canada, France, and India.

In itself pysanka is a hen’s egg, treated with wax according to a specific technology and painted with natural or aniline dyes. Traditions of such a painting in the Hutsul region take their roots in the hoary antiquity and constitute a unique accumulation of miniature painting works. Their ornamental patterns have been preserved since the pagans’ times.
