Ruzhany Palace

Author: Lida added 18-11-2012, 04:05
Ruzhany PalaceRuzhany Palace is situated in the small town Ruzhany (Pruzhany area, Brest region, Belarus).

The palace was built in 1602 by Great Lithuanian Chancellor Lew Sapieha. The architecture and the time when the building started are unknown.

In 1700 Sapieha’s residence was destroyed and rebuilt in neoclassical style. The architect was Jan Samuel Becker from Saxony. During this time appeared an extensive library, conservatory and theater in the palace. The English park was created around.

In 1784 there was a King Stanislaw Poniatowski in the Palace, but after the third division of Rzeczpospolita and Uprising in 1831 the Sapieha estate was withdrawn and used as a textile mill.

During World War I there was an accident in the palace and the building was set on fire. Between the wars there were attempts to restore the building but after the World War II the palace returned into ruins. The remains of the walls collapsed, and partially dismantled by local residents for the bricks to restore the houses in the postwar period.
