Czapski Palace

In the southern part of Opalenie, at the source of the Murawa water stream and several ponds, there is one of the most charming monuments of Opalenie. It is a palace from around the mid-XVIIIth century surrounded by a park. It was built on the foundations of a XVIIth-century Baroque manor house, from which cellars and underground corridors leading in different directions have survived to this day. The building was once the property of the Czapski family, the then heirs and founders of the main monuments in Opalenie. Currently, the palace is not open to the public because it houses the “Zapowiednik” Addiction Treatment Center.
