Interiors of a Neo-baroque palace | IN MY LENS


Neo-Baroque palace in Pszczyna, southern Poland, is a very interesting building. Encircled with a beautiful park is a perfect idea for a weekend trip - and, when the last year I was living in the south of Poland - I decided to visit it.
The palace's architecture was finally defined between 1870-1876 (though its beginnings reach XV century) ans is clearly inspired by French Baroque just take a look at Place des Vosges in Paris. 19th century neo-styles are not what I like the most - because isn't Baroque more interesting than Neo-Baroque, and Classicism than Neo-Classicism? Anyway, it turned out that the interiors of the palace are very interesting. They were even awarded for super-accurate restauration of the interiors.

In an earlier post I showed you the bathrooms of the palace

Residential rooms

In the contrary to the representative parts of the palace in the residential rooms the baroque's influence isn't that strong anymore. Pastel colors make us see more of romantic style, the furniture is in different neo-styles typical of 19th cenury.
