An exhibition at the National Museum in Warsaw entitled Starożytne skarby Ukrainy. Ukraina ¶wiatu (The Ancient Treasures of Ukraine: From Ukraine to the World) is the first outside that country to display the most precious items from the splendid private collection of two Ukrainian industrialists and art patrons, Serhiy Platonov and Serhiy Taruta.

The exhibition contains 400 artifacts dating back from the sixth millennium BC to the 12th century, including models of temples and residential buildings, and items of everyday use.

The National Museum has for years not had an opportunity to host an exhibition offering such an in-depth look into the most outstanding artistic and technical achievements of ancient goldsmithery: jewelry including necklaces, bracelets, ear-rings and rings, finely decorated weapons and religious objects. Thanks to its broad historical scope and a wide range of items, the exhibition is an opportunity to discover the fascinating and rich cultural past of Poland's eastern neighbors.
