Bagno- the palace-park complex

The palace in Bagno near Oborniki Śląskie, was constructed in the early 18th  century, as a residence of families of the Silesian gentry. The oldest, Baroque part of the edifice, was built on the order of the Count Heinrich Leopold von Seher-Thos, and his wife. Over the first two centuries the structure changed owners repeatedly. In 1905, the palace was bought by Georg Kissling, the wealthy industrialist  and the owner of the brewery in Wrocław. The Baroque building was extended on his request between 1907 and 1914. The structure was modernised and the second, Neo-Baroque edifice, called The New Palace was added, according to the design of Paweł Jarosch. All this was undertaken in order to captivate the Emperor, on whom depended the knighthood craved by the Kissling. The western gate, inspired by the shape of a triumphal arch, was built especially for the expected visit of the Emperor. The  stairs leading from the stone corridor to the first floor, and the previously mentioned, gate were named after the Emperor. Above the entrance gate an inscription was carved : Veritate et Justitia (Truth and Justice). Stained glass windows depicting the personification of the inscription, were placed in the windows of the landing. After the death of Georg in 1922, the palace was inherited by his son – Conrad Kissling. Bagno (with the palace) was bought by the Silesian Credit Association of Knightly Landowners in 1927. Three years later it became the property of  the order of Salvatorians. The friars came into possession of the farm buildings. In 1940, the friars were banished from the monastery, and a camp for people displaced from Yugoslavia, Warsaw and Łódź was established here. The Red Army  took over the building in 1945. The Salvatorians regained the palace in Bagno after the war.

Two ball rooms are located in the oldest Baroque wing. In the festive room, a wooden ceiling decorated with coat-of-arms, has survived to this day. The hunting room, the other of the two imposing rooms, was covered with cordovan and panelling; a functioning fireplace is located here.

Today, the palace-park complex in Bagno belongs to the Society of the Divine Savoir, and houses the residence of the convent and the seminary college. The palace is refurbished and it is surrounded by the 5 ha of a landscape park, where a church, a cave and the so-called ‘philosophers bower’ have survived.
