Sobieski residence - Zolochiv (Złoczów), Ukraine
Crown of the Kingdom of Poland



The rectangular fort was built in 1634-36 by Jakub Sobieski using the labor of enslaved Crimean Tatars. The Sobieski castle comprised solid walls in a then current Dutch style, with four pentagonal towers at each corner, and the so-called "grand palace". The Chinese Palace, a diminutive mauve-colored rotunda flanked by one-storey wings, was added later in the century as Jan III's gift to his French-born wife, Marysieńka.

In 1672, the castle was taken after a 6-days siege by the Turks under Kapudan Pasa. Three years later, it survived a new siege by the Ottoman army. After Jakub Ludwik Sobieski's death in 1737, the castle passed to the Radziwill princely family and then (in 1801) to Count Łukasz Komarnicki whose heirs sold it to the Austrian crown in 1834.

In the 19th century, the castle was adapted for use as a hospital and barracks. It was turned into a prison in 1872 and continued in use after the September Campaign. There's a chapel commemorating the victims of the NKVD on the grounds of the castle.

Since 1985 the complex has been supervised by the Lviv Art Gallery and under restoration. Recently it began to open its grounds for visitors. Exhibits include more than 25 European coats of arms, dinosaur bone chandeliers, and a replica of a typical royal crown from the 13th century, that could be similar to that of Daniel of Galicia.

Castle in Olesko - Olesko, Ukraine
Crown of the Kingdom of Poland



The Olesko Castle, oval in shape, stands on top of a small hill, about fifty meters in height. A moat and a wall surrounds it, which serves as a defence for the castle. The castle is also surrounded by a dense swamp. The land that the castle sat on changed ownership many times. It was originally on the border of land of Volhynia and land of Lviv.

The castle was, at different times, owned by Poland, Lithuania, and Hungary. It became a political landmark in the 14th century when movable borders between the three aforementioned countries ran through its territory. Battles for ownership of the castle were constant. A deep well in the basement of the castle was used as an escape route for besieged prisoners.

In the 15th century, the castle was changed from being a defense point, to simply a getaway for aristocracy.

In 1605, the castle was bought by the nobleman Jan Daniłowicz h. Sas, a wealthy local landowner and Voivode of the Ruthenian Voivodeship. It was then sold to the family of Koniecpolski. The new owners, whose main residence was in Zolkiew, treated the castle poorly, and only in 1682 the castle was renovated by Jan III Sobieski, who bought the complex from Stanislaw Koniecpolski for 400 000 zlotys. In early 18th century, Olesko was bought by the family of Rzewuski, and its collection of antiques was moved to another castle the Rzewuscy owned, the Pidhirtsi Castle.

The castle is perhaps most famous for being the birthplace of the Polish king Jan III Sobieski, the hero of the Battle of Vienna. He often lived there, and collected many of the artworks displayed in the present-day museum. Another Polish king, King Michał Korybut Wiśniowiecki, was also born here.

The castle was restored in the late 16th to the early 17th centuries. Paintings and mosaics were brought in to decorate the different rooms of the castle. The castle was remodeled in the Italian Renaissance style, which was popular at that time.
In 1838, an earthquake rocked the castle, partly destroying some areas. In 1882, the castle, regarded as a Polish national monument was bought by the Committee of Preservation of the Olesko Castle, which led to a restoration in 1892. Both World War I and World War II affected the castle negatively, undoing previous restoration work. In 1956, the castle was struck by lightning.

The castle was restored again, beginning in 1961 and lasting until 1985. Today, it is a museum, displaying the collections of antique furnishings and art dating from the 16th-17th centuries. It also features sculptures, paintings, still lives, applied arts, tapestries, period weapons, and objects used in everyday life at the time. Its collection is regarded as one of the richest treasury of Polish art outside borders of Poland.
The castle is a part of the "Golden Horseshoe", a ring of three castles nearby each other: the Olesko, the Pidhirtsi, and the Zolochiv Castles.

Thanks for warm welcome ........

The point is that the people who called themselves "Ukrainians" started to do this in XIX century not in XVI century like you wrote...Propably, you mean- cossacks and Ruthenians who fight only for $$$$ (no matter who's enemy at the time)

Dębno Castle, Crown Kindom of Poland

Dębno Castle is a late Gothic complex, built in 1470 - 1480 by Chancellor of the Crown and Kasztelan of Kraków, Jakub Dębiński (also known as Jakub z Dębna), in the southern Polish village of Dębno. It is located a few hundred meters south of the international European route E40.
Before stone castle was built, a complex made of wood and earth had existed on the location. It probably belonged to komes Świętoslaw of the noble Gryfita family, Kasztelan of Wiślica. Some time in the mid-14th century, Dębno passed into the hands of the influential Odrowąż family, to which Jakub z Dębna, founder of the castle, belonged. In 1586 the castle was rebuilt in Renaissance style, and at that time it belonged to a Hungarian nobleman Ferenc Wesselini, secretary of King Stephen Báthory. In the late 18th century, another remodeling took place, ordered by the Tarło family, who were then-owners of the castle. Tarło coat of arms and the date 1772 can still be seenon baroque portal. Also, at that time, a part of the northern wing of the castle was added.

Throughout the years, Dębno castle changed hands several times. It belonged to a number of noble Polish families - Lanckoroński, Rogawski, Rudnicki, Spławski (who in 1831 hosted there refugees of the November Uprising), Jastrzębski. Even though owners carried out numerous remodeling projects, the castle did not change its original look. It today consists of four rectangular segments, which make an internal, rectangular courtyard with a well. The gate goes through a Baroque portal. Lavlishly furnished rooms on upper floors were occupied by owners, while domestic workers lived on ground floor. The castle used to be surrounded by a moat, now, there is a permanent wooden bridge leading to the gate.

In 1945, the castle was taken over by the government of Poland, and between 1970–1978, it was renovated. Since 1978, Dębno castle has been home to a branch of Tarnów Regional Museum.

Commonwealth was a nice idea, but since it's establishment, it was condemned. Too much of internal conflicts. I.e. Union of Kedainiai clearly verifies different notion of chosen way.

The agreement never came into force. Its main proponent, Janusz Radziwiłł, died only 2 months after its signing, in Tykocin, besieged by forces loyal to king Jan Kazimierz. The tide of the war soon turned and a popular uprising in Poland broke the power of the Swedish army. The Swedish occupation of Lithuania sparked a similar uprising in Lithuania.

btw. Polish–Swedish union (1592-1599) was interesting idea "but since it's establishment, it was condemned"

My point was that since XVI there was a lot of internal conflicts. Example of Union of Kedainiai clearly shows that. You can also find thousands of similar examples.
Plus, it is always difficult to have a multi-ethnic state. Mascow took it's advantage after some religious reforms...For instance, in some parts of Lithuania propria, many polish speaking priests, monks were killed or beaten (during The Counter-Reformation) by locals, what caused some strict actions later.
Probably the main problem inthe political level was the right of liberum veto. In this case commonwealth doesn't look as a very progressive state compared to other countries back then. Liberum veto created an anarchy.

I will do this one properly.

Krasiczyn Palace - Krasiczyn, Poland
Crown of the Kingdom of Poland



The construction of the castle started in 1580, initiated by a local nobleman Stanislaw Siecienski of Siecin, who came to the area from Mazovia. Works lasted for 53 years, and the castle was not completed until 1633, by Marcin Krasicki, son of Stanisław and Voivode of Podolia, who in the meantime had changed his name.

Originally, the castle was a fortified stronghold, protecting southern border of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. However, Marcin Krasicki, who was regarded as one of the most important promoter of arts in the country, turned the fortress into a sophisticated residence (palazzo in fortezza), under supervision of Italian architect, Galleazzo Appiani.

Also, he dubbed the complex Krasiczyn, after his last name. Later, a village of Krasiczyn grew near the castle, also bearing the same name. The Krasiczyn castle was built on the site of an older, wooden complex, called Sliwnica, which had probably been built in the 14th century.

Despite numerous fires and wars across the centuries, the castle’s complex has been essentially unchanged since the early 17th century. Built as a square, with walls representing all four quarters of the globe, at the corners there are four oval-shaped towers: Divine (Boska), Papal (Papieska), Royal (Krolewska), and Noble (Szlachecka). These names reflected the eternal order of the world, with four grades of authority.

The rectangular, spacious court is surrounded to the east and north by living quarters, and to the south and west by walls, adorned with attics. In the middle of the western wall, there is a square-shaped tower of the clock (Zegarowa), added by Marcin Krasicki at the beginning of the 17th century. This tower serves as a main gate, with a wall bridge over the moat. Across the centuries, the castle attracted most famous personalities of Polish history. Among visitors, there were kings Sigismund III Vasa, Wladyslaw IV Vasa, John II Casimir Vasa, and Augustus II the Strong. Sigismund III Vasa, of whom Marcin Krasicki was a loyal supporter, visited the castle thrice. For the first time, in 1608, together with wife Constance of Austria.

One of most precious elements of the complex is the chapel, located in the Divine Tower, which has been compared to the Sigismund's Chapel in Krakow’s Wawel Cathedral. Among other interesting things, there are richly sculpted portals, loggias, arcades, and unique sgraffito wall decorations, whose total area is about 7000 square meters. All works were overseen by Italian architects, and the details were completed by craftsmen from nearby Przemysl. The sgraffito depicted Roman emperors, Polish kings, members of the Krasicki family, hunting scenes, and saints of the Roman-Catholic Church. Unfortunately, most of the interior design has been destroyed, mostly by the Red Army soldiers, who were stationed there from October 1939 to June 1941.

In late 1941, after German invasion of Soviet Union, Andrzej Sapieha returned to the castle, which had been used as barracks for soldiers of the Red Army (see Molotov Line). This is his account of the premises: “On the floors there is garbage, old clothes, destroyed books. Walls full of Soviet propaganda posters, no furniture, instead of it, wooden beds everywhere. The chapel is completely ruined, all sculptures on the walls destroyed as high as the savages could reach. Altars and pews destroyed. All three monuments have disappeared. The church in a terrible state, as it had been used as stables and a butcher shop. Metal coffins were used by the Bolsheviks as bathtubs”.

Near the castle, there is the Swiss Pavilion, connected with Krasiczyn by a secret passage Standing also in the adjacent park is the Hunter’s Pavilion, a villa in "the hunter style". The park itself is abundant with birds and plants.

Castle of Kazimierz the great - Przemysl, Poland
Crown of the Kingdom of Poland



The castle was built on a hill in 1340, during the reign of Casimir the Great in the place of wood and natural stronghold, which had already been built in the early eleventh century, King Boleslaw the Brave, he built a brick Romanesque rotunda and the palace. Casimir the Great built it in the Gothic style, which still retains only the arched gate. The castle was damaged during the invasion of Vlachs in 1498.

It was rebuilt in the years 1514-1553 by Piotr Kmita Sobieński, strengthening its defences by building basteji. The castle had a square plan with round towers at the corners, and in the southern corner of the square tower. Below the castle was fortified przygródek.

In the years 1616-1633 the governor Michał Krasicki commissioned to carry out Galeazzo Appianiemu increasing conversion of the castle towers north and east, and north-eastern wing converted to residential building with arcades.

In 1678 the governor Marcin Kącki placed in the castle armory. In the 2nd half of the seventeenth century, attempts were made to strengthen the defence of the castle.
In the years 1759-1762, mayor Stanisław Poniatowski tore down a curtain along the south-west of the towers and built a new wall to weaken the castle area about 10 metres and buttresses were added. In the years 1865-1867 a repair was made to the north-east wing and the north tower. Since 1884, the castle has housed the local Dramatic Society "Fredreum".

At the end of the twentieth century, the curtain wall was partly rebuilt from the south-west and the two towers on the curtain. Unveiled in the courtyard of the outline of Romanesque rotunda and palladium formed at the end of the reign of Boleslaw the Brave.

Łańcut castle - Łańcut, Poland
Crown of the Kingdom of Poland



Łańcut Castle is a 17th-century palace in Łańcut, Poland. It now houses a large museum. The castle is situated in the centre of the town and constructed in the style of a grand aristocratic palace-residence.

The site was originally occupied by castle built by Stanisław Lubomirski in 1629–42. The owner secured the services of architect Matteo Trapola and the stuccoist Giovanni Battista Falconi, in order to build a fortified residence.

In the second half of the 18th century, Izabela Lubomirska, née Czartoryski, converted the castle into the present palace complex. She extended it and had the interiors remodelled. Another reconstruction occurred in 1894–1903 in the style of French Neo-baroque.[1]
During its history, it has been the home of the noble Polish Pilecki, Stadnicki, Lubomirski, and Potocki families. The palace is currently a museum particularly well known for its large collection of historic carriages.

In the castle grounds there is a park with the little romantic castle, a coachhouse with a collection of carriages and a guest-house in the English style.

Oporow castle - Lodz voivoideship, Poland
Crown of the Kingdom of Poland



Oporów - a village located in the province of Łódź, mentioned for the first time in the 14th century historical sources, was the seat of the Oporowski family, of the Sulima coat of arms. It obtained city rights before 1424, only to lose them again at the end of the 18th century. The family residence, i.e. both the castle and the church with the Paulite monastery, was built by the archbishop Władysław Oporowski. He was the owner of the Oporów estate from 1425 till 1453.

At the beginning of the 17th century, the property was inherited by the Tarnowski family, of the Rola coat of arms. In the 18th century both the land and the castle were the property of the Sołłohub family. In the 19th century Oporów, sold several times, belonged successively to the Korzeniowski, Pociej, Oborski, and Orsetti families, until 1932 when it became the property of the Karski family.

The castle, a small late-Gothic defensive residence, built around 1440, is situated on an island surrounded by a moat. It is one of the very few monuments of this kind preserved in Poland. Its compact layout is concentrated around a quadrangular courtyard: a residential house, two towers (one with the chapel attached), and a defensive wall connecting them make up the premises. Renovated in the 17th, 18th, and 19th century, the castle underwent only some minor changes. They produced the Renaissance beam framed ceiling, the Baroque window openings on the first floor, the gate part, rebuilt in the 18th and 19th century, and the neoclassical stucco work. The so-called “cupboard" building on the courtyard, as well as the neogothic portal at the main entrance and the terrace by the bridge, date back to 1840. The castle is surrounded by a landscape park, founded in the first half of the 19th century.

Due to thorough reconstruction works between 1962 and 1965, some of the 19th century renovations were removed and the original shape of the roofs as well as the gallery of the residential house were restored. The Gothic portals and windows, together with the Renaissance polychrome beams from the mid-17th century, were revealed from behind the plaster.

Since 1949, the castle has been the seat of the museum with its exhibition of manor interiors. The works of art and craft contained therein refer to the traditions of old Polish manor houses. The collection includes exhibits from various epochs, ranging from the 16th century till the beginning of the 20th century - paintings, sculptures and artistic handcrafts. Most of them have been donated or purchased. Very few exhibits are directly connected with the history of the castle. These include the 18th century portraits of the Sołłohub family members, mirrors with jardinieres from the early 19th century, duel pistols from the 18th and 19th century, and faience dishes from Shelton, England, produced at the end of the 19th century.
