Branicki Palace
Palace was built in 1740 to a design by Jan Zygmunt Deybel and completed by Giacopo Fontana. It was built for Jan Klemens Branicki who was powerful magnate, adviser to August III and a connoisseur of fine art.


In the 18th century, Branicki Palace (Castle) was one of the most magnificent residences in Warsaw. This Rococo style palace was destroyed during Second World War and rebuilt in 1947 – 1953 basing on detailed historical research and 18th-century paintings. The façade of the main building is adorned with allegorical sculptures relating to science and art.
