Bobrowo – the palace complex in Wojanów

Bobrów palace (formerly Boberstein) was erected on the ruins of a Renaissance mansion which probably dated back to the years 1598-1608, managed by Nickel von Zedlitz. The stone mansion was established on a rectangular plan, with the shorter side facing the river Bóbr. The walls of that edifice can still be admired in the present palace. Around the mid-seventeenth century, because of the damage sustained in the Thirty Years’ War, the palace was rebuilt. Over the years, its owners were: Carl Christoph von Zedlitz, Anna von Nostitz, the Jesuit Order, the Schaffgotsch family, a merchant Daniel von Bachus, Karl Sigmund von Rothkirch and Ernestine von Kochwitz. Circa 1894, when the palace belonged to Hans Rudolf von Decker, it was thoroughly reconstructed. After 1921 the palace passed into the hands of the Rothkirch family and later, in 1934, it was taken over by Sierstropff von Franken. It was subsequently purchased by the government of the Third Reich, and used by the Soviet Army after 1945. Since then, the palace has served many different functions: a centre for Greek political refugees, a correctional facility, a summer camp, a State Agricultural farm (PGR), an Agricultural Cooperative (SKR) and the Liability Insurance Inspectorate from Jelenia Góra. From the 1960s, not renovated and unused, the edifice was falling into disrepair until 1994, when it was bought by the Stowarzyszenie Polsko-Niemieckie Promocji, Odbudowy i Utrzymania Historycznych Wartości Zabytków Kultury i Tradycji Śląska (Polish-German Association for Promotion, Reconstruction and Preservation of the value of Historical Monuments of Silesian Culture and Tradition Monuments). The utility buildings were used as a hotel for the young people from Poland and Germany.

The architectural style of the building resembles forms typical of the French Renaissance, with a touch of Dutch ornamentation. The original interior layout was preserved on the ground floor. The hall and vestibule of the palace contain original paintings. Rooms by the palace are used for accommodation. You can have tea or coffee on the premises.
