Rzeszow: Lancut Castle Tour

One of the most famous aristocratic residences in Poland is located only 20 km from Rzeszow. Lancut Castle is famous for its impressive architecture, magnificent interiors and unique collection of horse-drawn carriages. The castle was originally built in the second half of the 16th century. Later the whole complex was modernised into a palace-residence. Lancut Castle is also widely known as a former residence of two greatest Polish families: first (until 1816), the Lubomirski family, and later (until 1944) the Potocki clan. Today the castle is surrounded by English style, picturesque park filled with pavilions and farm buildings.
