Aptly nicknamed ‘the Polish Versailles’, the Branicki Palace and park complex in Bialystok is one of the most beautiful stately homes in Poland and the baroque gardens around the Palace are some of the most beautiful in Europe.

In the 16th-century, the Palace was a defensive castle built by the Wiesiołowski family – the owners of Bialystok at that time. The grand former residence of Jan Klemens Branicki, the Palace that was built to (but never did) house a king, now houses a medical university and two museums. The museums are a must-see to learn the tortured history that rests underneath the Palace's beautiful exterior.
