Warmątowice Sienkiewiczowskie - the palace and the park

The building was constructed in 1602, as a Renaissance defensive mansion for Wenzel von Zedlitz, the starost of the county of Legnica and Brzeg. The site was enclosed at the time with a broad, fortified moat. The mansion was converted into a Baroque palace in 1748, for the new owner, Carl Ferdinand von Seherr-Thoss. The structure was bought by Louis von Olszewski in 1812. An interesting incident, connected with his descendent, Alfred von Olszewski, explains the untypical name of the town. In search of his Polish roots, and after reading a novel by Henryk Sienkiewicz, Alfred von Olszewski wanted to Polonise his children, just as he had been. His will, however, was not fulfilled, which resulted in the bequeathing of the estate to the writer. Henryk Sienkiewicz refused to accept the inheritance, as he considered an enforcement to change nationality, unethical.

The palace was ruined in the early 19th century, as the battle of Katzbach took place on the field surrounding the village, in 1813. The battle was fought between the forces of Napoleon and the Russo-Prussian Silesian Army under the Prussian Field Marshal Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher. The palace once housed the main headquarters of the Field Marshal. An obelisk commemorating this fact is situated in front of the palace gate

The palace was built on a rectangular plan. It has two storeys. A multilateral wooden turret is placed upon the gable roof. Columns, with the inscriptions of the dates of the remodellings, are located on both sides of the main portal. The rooms with the wood-beam ceiling, a Baroque polychrome and the presentation room in piano nobile, are particularly worth attention. A bridge with a stone banister is located on the east of the façade. The bridge leads to an extensive yard, surrounded by the farm buildings (the outbuilding and a granary) from three sides.

 

The terraces were created in place of the party liquidated moat. The garden was established on the terraces in the 18th century. The garden site was gradually extended, until the late 19th century. In the second half of the 18th century, an octagonal  chapel, topped with a dome roof, was built here. It has survived to this day, and it is located by the moat.

The palace is has been a private estate since 1995. A thorough renovation is restoring its former glory.
