Trip 1 - Rogalin Palace (optional), Wednesday, 6 September 2017
Start: 15.30, Conference Venue
Duration: around 4h
The Rogalin Palace is a true jewelry of 18th residential palace architecture. Built in the late 1700's, it belonged to a noble family of Raczyński and has been a witness to various historical events in the last 200 years. Thanks to the recent interior renovation, it now faithfully illustrates the life of various family members from late 18th century to the outbreak of WWII.
You are going to see richly furnished rooms with work-of-art chandeliers, cutlery, paintings and various other examples of applied arts. The library room, with its wooden hand-carved bookcases covering all 4 walls a few meters all the way up to the ceiling is considered the greatest highlight of the palace. 
Apart from the interiors, the adjacent painting gallery of Edward Aleksander Raczyński exhibits approximately 250 works of art by acclaimed European artist. The biggest attraction, however, is the biggest painting by Jan Matejko - Joan of Arc reaching as much as 484 x 973 cm. The palace is surrounded by a French and English style gardens, the latter a home to numerous age-old oaks, including the country-famous Lech, Czech and Rus.
