Ruzhany Palace is a ruined palace compound in Ruzhany village, Pruzhany Raion (district), Brest Voblast (province), Western Belarus. Between the 16th and 19th centuries Ruzhany, then called Różany, was the main seat of the senior line of the Sapieha noble family, known as the ''''. Castle is currently under systematic reconstruction, with the palace ornate gate and entry building being already restored.HistoryRuzhany began its life in the late 16th century as the site of Lew Sapieha's castle, the palace being completed in 1602. The Sapieha residence was destroyed in the course of the internecine strife in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania when it was attacked by Michał Serwacy Wiśniowiecki's forces in 1700.Ruzhany Palace was rebuilt as a grand Neoclassical residence in the 1770s by Aleksander Michał Sapieha, employing the services of the architect Jan Samuel Becker of Saxony, who set the palace in an English park landscape. Aside from the palace, there was a theatre (1784–88), an orangery and several other outbuildings. Becker also designed the local church (rebuilt in the 1850s).

  • Castle of gorgeous, impressive once and for all! What luck that it began to restore/recover. This place points of interest. More accurately, perhaps, called "the ruins of the Castle", but the scale is so impressive that all the same Castle! Wander through the ruins, inside, one can see even a portal from the fireplace on the top floor. Gates has already renovated, very nice, elegantly and big!
