It's really nice though.
It is called the 'Turkish House' .

Forgive me, but google translate was easier now:

Quote:
Turkish House - historic building located in Krakow Kleparz Street. Long 31 (corner of ul. Pędzichów 2).

It was built between 1883-1885 and was then a two-storey apartment building.

In 1910 it was rebuilt to a design by Henry Lamensdorf for Arthur Theodore Rayskiego, a participant in the January uprising and the Ottoman army officer in Turkey. Created 3-storey, 4-winger house with an inner courtyard. The summit is adorned with overhanging turret-minaret, surrounded by a gallery, and covered with a conical helmet with a crescent. In the corners there are two modest minarets. According to legend, the minarets were built for his wife Rayskiego, a Muslim, to remind her native Egypt. In fact, my wife was Rayskiego Joseph of Seroczyńskich, Catholic, whose signature appears on the building plans. It was she who helped to build the minaret. [1]

On the front elevation there is a plaque commemorating the pilot Brigadier Gen. Ludomiłowi Rayskiemu, the creator of the Polish Air Force, who lived in this house.

Front of the building, on a small the square, there is a column with a statue of the Virgin Mary. She was placed in September 1865, on the site was destroyed by a storm in July of the same year, the older figure. Renewed in 1897.

If they can restore that huge building in Montevideo, surely they can restore the Cazino in Constanta. But sadly that's not happening

Zresztą nie wiem jakie jest przeznaczenie pozostałej części kompleksu (zdaje się jakaś szkoła była?). Reszta dziedzińca ma trochę nudny

Starsza część zamku miała być przeznaczona na cele muzealne. Ostatecznie inwestycja komercyjna, Restauracja, apartament, i pokoje hotelowe:

I'm pretty sure that's in Krakow, not Slovakia.
