A friend and adviser to King Stanisław August Poniatowski - Bazyli Walicki built a family home in 1786, which due to holding the office of the Rawa’s governor and the considerable dowry of his wife Róża from Nieborski, was given the form of a beautiful, classical palace. This is how the history of this place began, which regardless of the history of the country and the fate of its owners, continues to this day ...
Bazyli, a participant in the Great Sejm, began the tradition of hosting famous and honorary people in the palace. The aforementioned king stayed here, which is reminiscent of a memorial stone in the palace park. After the heroic fights, the brother of another of the owners - the regiment, rested here- Jan Kozietulski. The walls that now and you are still remembering the old days.
For 159 years the palace remained in the hands of the same family. The descendants of subsequent hosts were distinguished by patriotism, determination and commitment. They associated with people with similar priorities, thanks to which the palace was home to, among others Rzewuski and Zamoyski families. The last owners, grandchildren of Prince Lubomirski, were banished from here after the war.
In the first period of the World War II, Germans were stationed in the palace, whose presence did not prevent the owners - the Morawski family - from conspiracyally hosting homeless or persecuted persons. After the Warsaw Uprising and the exodus of Warsaw residents, Jews were hidden in the palace.
The land reform was an eviction sentence for the last owners. After many, many years, in 2008, the Moravian fortunately managed to regain the property. In the meantime, the palace served as a school, and then for years as a summer residence of officials of the Council of Ministers. Cyrankiewicz, Gomułka, Rokossowski, Urban and Buzek rested here. Nina Andrycz loved this place.
