Short description

Der Krasinski-Palast wurde in der zweiten Hälfte des 17. Jahrhundert von Tylman van Gameren erbaut. Der Bauherr war Jan Dobrogost Krasinski, der zu einer der bekanntesten Magnatenfamilien in Polen-Litauen gehörte. Im 19. Jahrhundert begann ein langsamer aber stetiger Zerfall des Gebäudes, bis es 1944 von der Wehrmacht zerstört wurde. Seit 1961 befindet sich im Gebäude ein Archiv historischer Dokumente.

Obwohl das Gebäude sehr imposant ist, wird es gerne übersehen. Wir empfehlen vor allem einen Erholungsspaziergang im Palastgarten.

What else is there in the palace?

There is nothing in the palace except the archival collection of the National Library.
