The largest Baroque residence

Nowy Wiśnicz - Zamek (4)

The Castle in Nowy Wisnicz is the largest preserved Baroque fortified residence in Poland. The structure has received its current Renaissance-inspired facade during the reign of Piotr Kmita. The residence is composed of four two-story wings surrounding a quaint, little courtyard. The feature that allows the Castle its unparalleled allure is the four towers that proudly stand at each of the corners of the residence. Each tower has its own unique shape, rendering the appearance of a completely different structure from every angle. Its current form is the result of an architectural design by Stanislaw Lubomirski, who had the Castle rebuilt in the years from 1615 to 1637.
