Thank you for your comment! We hope you enjoy your visit! We work a lot to keep this family chateau atmosphere that gives the impression that the owner left not so long ago.

The last Polish royal family lived here and all are buried in the adjoining church which is a good 15 minute visit. The wooden chandelier in the main room is a wonder. Parking not a problem. Check for opening times.

Wander behind the chateau along the river bank via the old bridge. On a sunny afternoon the chateau's reflections in the river are lovely - free. There are two prices to enter the chateau - one for inside and gardens or just gardens.

This is a living museum; all of the ornaments and furniture is still there to see. Take your time and enjoy the sights.
