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.

  • Due to the short business stay in Bialystok, unfortunately I did not have too much time to explore the Branicki Palace, but from the outside for evening is doing a very good impression. A very interesting building designed with a flourish. In the evening, the charm of the illumination. In the case of your next stay in Bialystok, in the first place, I go to the Branicki Palace, to explore it more thoroughly.
