October Galicia Tour. Day 3: Polish Nobility Day

A visit in Łańcut Castle, the traces of the vanished world of Polish nobility. It is one of the most beautiful aristocratic residences in Poland, sometimes called the Potocki Palace, since that family lived here for a few generations.

The palace was built in 1628-1641 by Stanisław Lubomirski, and  rebuilt in 1894-1903 in the style of French Neo-baroque. It is  famous for its excellent interiors, orangery, and extraordinarily interesting collection of horse-drawn carriages. The palace complex is surrounded by an old and picturesque park in the English style filled with pavilions and farm buildings, all part of the former daily life of the castle.

As the photography is not allowed in the castle, we are presenting some pictures from the museum’s website:

After lunch in the historic manor unit in Kombornia (which can be traced back to the 16th century), our group visited a museum of nobility culture located in an old manor house in Kopytowa.

  1. Could the name Lubmorirski be in the family of Lubinski?
