PARK

The palace park was designed by Peter Joseph Lenne. It was dominated by open landscape spaces decorated with compositions of trees and bushes of national and exotic origin. After the war the park layout was neglected, the communication system was compacted, free spaces were filled with numerous groups of trees and shrubs, mainly of a local species, enriched with single exotic species. For the years 2019-2020 conservation works are planned which will restore the original appearance of the park.

The park is listed in the registry of the Provincial Conservator.
