Bishop Ciolek Palace - Review

The Bishop of Plock used to stay in this Renaissance mansion, which was completed in 1503. It’s thought to be one of the greatest among the old residences in Krakow. Now managed by the national museum, the building houses two important exhibits. The first is The Art of Old Poland: Twelfth to Eighteenth Centuries, full of sculptures and paintings from various art movements - medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque - which also includes fragments from a 15th century altarpiece. The other exhibit is a gorgeous collection icons, known as Orthodox Art of the Old Polish Commonwealth Gallery. There may also be temporary exhibits. Check the museum website for upcoming events!

Bishop Ciolek Palace, Krakow Reviews

  • Great palace and beautiful Museum inside. I had the pleasure to be a "special guest" there! The atmosphere is magic and all the people working there welcome you very warmly! A visit is highly suggested!

  • This was a very awesome place to visit and had a beautiful pictures and nice collection of artifacts

  • Pretty cool place with access to antiquities dating from 12th century that you can right up to. Make sure you get the address accurately as it's not that obvious from the outside if the door is closed

  • Very very nice!!!!!

  • Небольшой ярко-розовый дом в Старом городе – бывший дворец епископа Эразма Циолека, построенный в самом начале XVI века. За последние пять столетий этому дому пришлось побывать и штаб-квартирой полиции, и даже тюрьмой. Сейчас здесь находится отделение Краковского национального музея. Здание выбрано не случайно – епископ Циолек был известным дипломатом и просветителем, покровителем художников. Восстановленные залы XVI-XVII веков, фрески XVIII века в зале Добродетелей – всё это теперь доступно посетителям музея. Сейчас здесь работают две постоянные выставки – «Искусство старой Польши XII-XVIII веков» (где представлены работы средневековых польских художников, эпохи Ренессанса и барокко) и «Православное искусство ранней Польши». В здании размещены две академические кафедры Краковской художественной академии и цех реставрации Национального музея.
