Photographer's Note

The roofs of the Old Town in Warsaw. In the middle - the tower of Royal Castle. On the right - the wing of Branicki Palace, a notable 18th-century magnate's mansion in Warsaw.
The original building that stood where the palace now stands was a 17th century mansion of the Sapieha family sold in the the beginning of the 18th century to Stefan Mikołaj Branicki. This led to the current palace, built in 1740 by Johann Sigmund Deybel for Grand Crown Hetman Jan Klemens Branicki. The now rococo palace was raised by inspiration of French palaces. The façades were equalize with admirable rococo decoration and rooftop windows. During the Second World War, the estate was badly damaged. It was rebuilt in 1967, based on paintings by Bernardo Belotto, and now houses a Warsaw City Hall.


Kilka w jednym, jak Marek (Gustaw) lubi. Jest wieża Zamku Królewskiego, są okna i detale Pałacu Branickich, dachóweczki.
I jeszcze zagadka dla Mikołaja i Jana D. A gdzie jest emka?

Jeszcze prześlę inne dachy, na razie tylko zaznaczę, że w pałacu to ja nie mieszkam. Natomiast często tu bywam.
