Primates's Palace
Palace was built for Primate Michal Radziejowski in 1691. Before it was old manor from 16th century which was converted into a palace. Since 1691 it was a home to Polish Primates, highest officials of the Catholic Church for around 200 years.


Its today’s appearance reflects some changes made by Efraim Schroeger in 1777 – 1784 for the Primate Antoni Ostrowski. The Primate’s Palace is considered to be the first Neo-Classical palace built in Poland. It was destroyed during World War 2, then rebuilt in 1949 – 1952. Its most impressive feature is the Great Hall with its gorgeous stucco works and Ionian columns. Today building is the property of a national company operating in entertainment industry and is used as an office building.
