House of the Dukes of Brieg

Strzelin
The manor house, known as the House of the Dukes of Brieg, was built ca. 1585. In 1606 it was rebuilt in the Renaissance style. The work was commissioned by Duke Joachim Fryderyk. In 1675, the new owner became the Bohemian king and the complex was transformed into a public building. It seated a tax office and a regional court. In the times of the Napoleonic Wars, the palace once served as a meeting place for Frederick William I, the Prussian king, and tzar Alexander I. The palace was destroyed in 1945. Renovations of the historic monument continue to this day. It is a two-storey building covered with a gable roof with dormers and embellished with mannerist gable ends. One enters the building through a Baroque portal. Sadly, the complex is currently closed for visiting.
