Raczynski Palace
This building was first constructed as a regular house between 1702 – 1704. Around 1750s it was remodeled into a palace and in 1768 it was rebuilt to a design by the royal architect Jan Chrystian Kamsetzer. The most interesting and beautiful feature of this building is the ballroom located on the first floor which is decorated with stucco works and paintings.


Palace is a three-storey building supported by four Ionian columns. In the 19th century, the palace was the seat of the Government Justice Commission and in the interwar period, of the Ministry of Justice. During the Warsaw Uprising in 1944 it was used as a temporary hospital. Today it houses the Old Records Archive.
