Kościelniki Górne

The palace in Kościelniki Górne, constructed between 1866 and 1867, is an outstanding example of eclectic architecture in Lower Silesia. Although currently not in the best condition, the palace, with its impressive facade and historical outbuildings, remains a symbolic edifice.

The Palace Of Kościelnikach Górnych

Historical Overview

In the 17th century, a manor house stood on the site of the present palace, which was remodeled in the 18th century. The current form of the palace emerged between 1866 and 1867 through a substantial expansion of the original building. Since then, the palace has undergone several phases of change and is now an important historical monument.

Architecture

The palace presents itself as an impressive eclectic building with a fragmented floor plan, consisting of two- and three-story sections, complemented by small towers, terraces, and a two-story residential and utility attic. Covered with mansard and gable roofs, the facades are characterized by rich decorations. At the front is the main entrance, crowned by a terrace balustrade with a cartouche bearing the coat of arms of the von Carnap family.

Current State

After World War II, the palace was state-managed and served various purposes, including as office and residential buildings. Despite recent efforts to restore and preserve it, the palace is currently in a regrettable state. However, the building remains a fascinating example of the architecture of its time and continues to be an important part of the region's cultural heritage.

Your Trip to Kościelnikach Górnych Palace

Although this building is definitely a sight to see, keep in mind that it's privately owned and not exactly in tip-top shape. So, if you're planning a visit, be extra careful and respectful of the property's condition and privacy. It's an awesome spot, but safety first, right?
