City of Plock, Poland
Puławy was also one of the stops on the photographic map of Poland. In beautiful autumn colors and golden rays of the sun, the palace and park complex of the Czartoryski princes appeared to us. In the second half of the 17th century, Puławy was owned by the Grand Marshal of the Crown, Stanisław Lubomirski. A small baroque palace was erected at that time. At the end of the 17th century, the daughter of the Lubomirski family, Elżbieta, became the owner of the palace. Destroyed by the Swedish army, the palace was rebuilt on the basis of the main body and at the same time modernized and significantly enlarged. A huge French-style park was established around the palace. At the end of the 18th century, the palace in Puławy became the main seat of Prince Adam Czartoryski and his wife Izabela. The residence was again rebuilt in a classicist style according to the design of Chrystian Piotr Aigner. On this occasion, the baroque garden was transformed into an English-style landscape park, which was given a romantic character. Many buildings were erected among the greenery – the Greek House, Marynka’s Palace, the Sibyl Temple, the Gothic House, gazebos and bridges, as well as a chapel in the shape of a rotunda. Among the numerous flower beds, trees and bushes, there are sculptures and sentences carved on stones and tablets. In this state, the park has survived to this day.
A beautiful autumn park, invigorating warm rays of the sun, colorful leaves rustling underfoot made the StrawArt team, apart from the completed photographic task, of course have a great time
