Out of town

Rogalin

- one of the most magnificent aristocratic residences in the area. The beautiful French park and landscape park are part of the complex. The palace itself was designed in the Baroque style, and it was only in the early 19th century that two semicircular wings were added. Visitors are invited to see a collection of Polish art inside the palace.

Kórnik

- situated on an island in a small lake, it was built in English Gothic style in the 19th century and is surrounded by a huge park. Kórnik’s arboretum is full of unique species of trees and is the most beautiful in the country. The castle has been owned by Zamojski family, who are very dedicated to the country and its welfare. The castle now appears as a typical private residence, and has an extensive art gallery.

Piast Route
