Help us renovate the Palace and make history in Pyszczyn, Poland !

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionHi, Our family is restoring a piece of history by our own hands, the last pre-war owner was Heinrich Gottfried. In 1945 The palace was occupied by the Red Army, and after it by the State Farm, In later years the palace rooms were transformed into apartments, destroying the stylish features of the interior, our mission is bringing the palace back to life, any help counts.
    The palace was built in 1727, it was over 250 years ago, helping us restoring the palace means that you will learn alot about the German- Polish history, you will understand the history of this place and the people who owned the palace for generations, you will see unique architecture, something pure, something that people built with their own hands with no help of machines. \nHelping us renovating the palace will give you once in a life time unforgetable expirience, you will learn how to work with moldings, you will learn how to renovate wooden floors, doors, doorframes, the best thing is that we do not renovate in modern style, we want it to look like in the old days.
