Kornik Castle


Zamek Korniku – Kornik Castle


…constructed in the 14th century. The current neogothic design and remodeling was done by the architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel for Tytus Działyński and the son Jan Kanty Działyński. After Jan’s death, his brother-in-law Count Władysław Zamoyski received the castle in Jan’s will. Shortly before his death in 1924, the childless count willed the castle, along with an extensive art collection and the Kórnik Arboretum to the Polish state. The castle currently houses a museum and the Kórnik Library.  – Wikipedia
