The palace-park complex


The palace-park complex was created in the English landscape park style at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries, according to the concept design by Princess Izabela Czartoryska. Among the sites particularly worth seeing are:

The Palace – erected in the years 1671–76, rebuilt numerous times; well-preserved interior, including a Baroque vestibule, as well as the Stone, Gothic, Column, Ballroom and Knight (the former chapel) Halls

The Gothic House – built on the foundation of a Baroque garden pavilion; the national and European art collections were formerly kept here

Sibyl’s Temple – the most important historical monument in Puławy, modelled on the Temple of Vesta in Tivoli near Rome and built in the years 1798–1801; designated for the collection of national memorabilia, it became the first Polish museum

The Greek House – part of the former palace orangery, with a monumental tetra-style Doric portico

Marynka’s Palace – a neo-Classical building erected before 1794 for the oldest of the Czartoryski daughters, Maria Wirtemberska

The Chinese Arbour – a rare example of garden architecture in Poland, modelled on a Chinese pagoda, once a place for brewing and drinking tea

The Yellow House – erected in the neo-Classical style before 1829, the building is also called the Alexander House (it served as the residence of Tsar Alexander II, during his stays in Puławy)

The English Stairs – a picturesque link between the lower and upper park, one of the oldest architectural elements of the Puławy garden complex

The Roman Gate – erected at the beginning of the 19th century, modelled on the triumphal Arch of Titus in Rome; finished as a romantic ruin (with parts of the wall purposefully missing)

The Sarcophagus – a monument made in Rome of Carrara marble, modelled on the Tomb of Scipio; was dedicated to the memory of August Czartoryski and Zofia née Sieniawska Czartoryska


The Caves – carved out in the park limestone slope; renovated in the recent years are now open to the public.
