History

The history of the monument dates back to the 1st half of the 13th century. It was originally a Gothic castle. From 1311 to 1675 it was the residence of the Piast dynasty. The appearance of the castle changed five times during the Middle Ages. The residence was then completely rebuilt and became one of the the most beautiful Renaissance palaces in Europe. The residence was damaged several times damaged then, first in 1741 by the Prussian army, and then again during Second World War. It was completely remodelled between 1966 and 1990, which brought the residence back to the original look of the Renaissance mansion and it was changed in the museum.
