The palace from the air

The Czartoryski Palace (Polish: Pałac Czartoryskich) is a palace in the town of Pulawy, Poland. It is named after its main owners, the Czartoryski family, though it is also linked to the aristocratic families of Lubomirski and Sieniawski.

History[edit]

It was first built between 1671 and 1679 by Stanisław Herakliusz Lubomirski to designs by the Dutch architect Tylman van Gameren. This complex included a garden. The town had passed to the Sieniawski family by 1706, when the palace and its surroundings were destroyed by Swedish troops during the Great Northern War. Reconstruction began under Elżbieta Sieniawska in 1722. Soon afterwards Maria Zofia Czartoryska married August Aleksander Czartoryski and between 1731 and 1736 they built a new Rococo palace on the site, to designs by Jan Zygmunt Deybel.
