[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Palace of Kamieniec Zabkowicki is one of the finest objects in Central Europe. It was built in the nineteenth century as a residence for Marianne of Orange, wife of Albrecht Hohenzollern, by the architect Karl Schinkel. Construction work began in 1838 and lasted until 27 years. This monumental residence was built for the equivalent of three tons of gold. It's a mixture of different styles: English Gothic, Teutonic and Sicilian architecture, Byzantine and Moorish architecture. Today, this gem of Silesia is a monumental ruin, it was destroyed by the Germans during the second World War I, and then set on fire by the Russians after 1945.
It has almost 100 000 sq m and 100 chambers, restored one by one.
