We fell in love with Guzów, before we even saw it. We came upon the place looking for ‘coolest ruins in Poland’ as it came high in many rankings. Latest descriptions we found, said that it’s neglected, but since then, the renovation started. It’s cool on one hand, but not so good in terms of filming from above. Fortunately only a part of the palace was covered with canvas which you can see in the video. Great weather made it all good, though.
The palace dates back to mid 19th century when Feliks from Sobański family bought the estate, paid it up quickly and started renovation. After he became the count in 1880, he began the transformation of the palace into a French style one with English gardens around.
During World War II, Adolf Hitler signed the documents regarding the conquest of Warsaw in the living room of the palace which made it a popular location for trips from Berlin.
