PALACE IN PAWLOWICE
The palace complex in pawlowice is one of the examples of Classical residences in Poland.If forms a palace - garden extension, stretching alon the northeast-southwest axis.In the central point there is a great palace with two identicaloutbuildings,joined by two - quarter spherical galleries,which surround the spacious courtyard in front of the palace.There is an alley with passage of outbuildings,stretching on its both sides.
The palace's layout is closed and complemented from the southwest with an extensive park.It is quite regular,with a great horseshoe -shaped ground floor and two radiating hombeam avenues,underlining the axial stmmetry of the overall layout.
The construction works began in 1779,and the decoration of interiors weren;t finished until 1792.The architectural blueprint,on a special order of count Maksymilian Mielzynski (1738 - 1799) was made by Carl Gotthard Langhans from Wroclaw,and the interior design - Johann Christian Kamsetzer,the architect of Polish king,Stanislaw Poniatowski.The sculpture works were performed by stoneworkers from Silesia under the supervision of Waclav Behm from Moravia,educated in the Vienna Academy.The stucco works inside the building were carried out by Italians: Giuseppe Amadio,Giuseppe Bargli and Margani.The palace and estates belonged to the Mielzynscy family until 1939.
The palace in Pawlowice is the unique example of the output of great architects and even today astonishes with its exceptional artistic value.
