Poznan: Kornik & Rogalin Tour

Once you have visited Poznan, why not join us for a tour to the Kornik Castle and Rogalin Palace to travel back in time. We would like to take you to these two splendid palaces which are pearls of architecture in the Greater Poland region. The first residence you will see will be the castle in Kornik erected in the Middle Ages but its present shape comes from the 19th century. The next attraction of this tour will be the 18th century Baroque-Classical palace in Rogalin. We ensure that this tour will be a nice escape from everyday life.

Tour itinerary:

  3. visiting the castle for up to 1 hour with our guide where you will have the chance to see:
  • the office called the room of Wladyslaw Zamoyski – here the floor is especially eye-catching and looks like a fancy carpet, but it is an extremely valuable, original floor made of walnut, birch and precious mahogany tree roots; in the office, under the window, there is a wonderful mahogany desk, at which Tytus Dzialynski himself loved to work.
  • Gen. Jadwiga Zamoyska’s room – this room represents the world of women; it is fully furnished with antique equipment – mostly used in the time by the Dzialynski family
  • living room – in this room, every detail is a long story, here you can find a magnificent table made of knots of several species of trees, a Brodman Viennese piano standing in the corner, on which Fryderyk Chopin played himself, or the 18th-century harp straight from Paris
  • the dining room and the Founders’ Room – in the middle of which there is a long table with neo-baroque chairs around it; the greatest impression is made by huge family portraits, including the White Lady staring at us closely; above us – a coffered, wooden ceiling – in 71 chests the coat of arms of the Polish knighthood made
    in the Founders’ Room, we discover the ending of the Zamoyski family history; here are original family paintings, as well as decorations referring to Arabic art which are the most interesting element of this room
