The Sapehas Palace

    Address:40a Kopernyka Street
  • The Sapehas Palace is the ancestral home of an old family of Lithuanian-Rus princes. The building in 17th-century French Baroque style was erected in 1868.

    Contemporaries used to call the palace of Adam Sapeha “the box of wonders”. Designed by architect A. Kun and constructed in the second half of the 19th century, this miniature and well-proportioned Neo-Baroque palace cost almost as much as the magnificent edifice of Potockis Palace nearby. The palace facades’ exquisite hand-carved stone decorations are especially attractive.

    In November 1918 the headquarters of the Ukrainian army were deployed in the palace. Today it houses the Regional Society for Preservation of Historical and Cultural Monuments.
