Branicki Palace, Bialystok

(4.7/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Branicki Palace is a historical edifice in Białystok, Poland. It was developed on the site of an earlier building in the first half of the 18th century by Jan Klemens Branicki, a wealthy Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth hetman, into a residence suitable for a man whose ambition was to become king of Poland. The palace complex with gardens, pavilions, sculptures, outbuildings and other structures and the city with churches, city hall and monastery, all built almost at the same time according to French models was the reason why the city was known in the 18th century as Versailles de la Pologne (Versailles of Poland) and subsequently Versailles de la Podlachie (Versailles of Podlasie).HistoryThe Palace was built for Count Jan Klemens Branicki, Great Crown Hetman and patron of art and science, raised in the French milieu of the Polish aristocracy, who transformed a previous house into the suitably magnificent residence of a great Polish noble, a rival to Wilanów Palace, making a start in 1726. He also laid out the central part of the town of Bialystok, not a large place in the 18th century, with its triangular market.

  • Beautifully restored Branicki Palace, unfortunately at the beginning of March when it is cold gray and grim, the lack of colors from the garden and the park surrounding the Palace. The Palace itself is impressive and you can go see it from the inside. The Palace Hall of Medical University and the deanery, so you can explore;) I have seen that there are guided tours.

  • a beautiful and extremely characteristic. A walk inside is a must if you are visiting the city.

  • Now in the palace housed the medical faculty, but regular French garden behind the main building. And it is worth attention. We were in the winter, snowless and soft, but in winter! Picture of garden hedges of Evergreen shrub shearing gently royally luxurious. Many white sculptures (plaster or cement), but from a distance they seem belomramornymi. Interesting garden lattices and pavilions. The frescoes in the piers of the main body. Suddenly in such a small town! In the summer no doubt much prettier. Great place for selfi))))
