Few weeks ago my husband and I had to attend a social for his work. Let me tell you it was rough having to put on a nice dress, do my hair, eat someone else’s cooking and finally meeting a few of my husband’s work buddies. But the best part was where this social was held at. It was held in one of the oldest buildings in this area, Palace Ostrecko, which is just outside of Bydgoszcz about 3 kilometers.
This is my first palace in Poland that I have been to and it did not disappoint me! As you can see by the pictures below that place is AMAZING! We were told by several people that we needed to go there and now I can see why.
The palace was built in 1832-1848. Over the years many rooms where added to it by different owners. There are actually 2 palaces on this location along with a magnificent park with lots of greenery. Throughout time Polish freedom fighters, Napoleon’s Army and the Prussion Army have all used the main palace at one time or another. Today it is owned by the city of Bydgoszcz. During the spring and summer is hosts music concerts, open-air events, exhibitions and many other activities. The palace also has a restaurant and 22 hotel rooms.
I can’t wait until the weather gets better so we can what it looks like when everything is green!
