Ruzhany Palace is a ruined palace compound in Ruzhany village, Pruzhany Raion, Brest Voblast, Western Belarus.

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).

  • Were 4 years with my daughter. She arranged quest-treasure hunt:) climbed the ruins for a long time. There's of course all the overgrown high grass, but it's worth seeing.

  • Were family. Before visiting hadn't even heard of this place. Building admires. But there are a few downsides. In the ruins of the need to walk carefully, not because of possible collapse, and not to engage in a bunch of * Aries. And most importantly, it's what restored part, like everything in this locality, lives guided by the principle of "war-torn, and lunch on schedule". When visiting you should consider the fact that in 3 Café (restaurant), one works with 18.00, second at 4 km from the Castle and works with a lunch break (lunch we could not), and the third near the Castle, bearing in mind that it is only available during the day, often on weekends is at specobsluzhivanii.

  • Very nice place, amazing view and tells how this place must had a glorious past. It must be re renovated and restored. It's a heritage well deserved.

  • This is a very beautiful place, which preserves the memory of the great history of our region. You can visit the ruins of the palace complex, opened after restoration of several halls. A worthy place to visit as groups and families. An interesting excursion. Be sure to visit.

  • Wonderful place. Definitely worth traveling. The majestic buildings. I can not believe that such facilities were in Belarus. Would very much like to here held a major restoration of the buildings, but understand that we need enormous funds and painstaking work. And hardly anyone deal with this. But even in that form mesmerizing beauty and scale. We were greeted by several local enterprising guys and offered to host a tour for "give". Wonder told the material. You can see that not just information from the Internet, which they themselves have read before. Have also been able to answer all the questions. In the restored part of the Museum.
