Ruins of Schlobitten Castle for sale in Slobity Poland through Agata Kincel of Big City Broker
“The palace and park complex (classified as a permanent ruin) is located in the village of Słobity , approx. 15 km north-east of Pasłęk and approx. 25 km east of Elbląg.
The most famous point of this area are the ruins of the palace that once belonged to the Zu Dohna family, one of the most distinguished Prussian count families in these lands. At the end of the 17th and the beginning of the 18th century, the palace was expanded with unprecedented panache and splendor, becoming the most outstanding realization of the Baroque era in this area and gaining the title of a royal palace.
In its heyday, the palace housed collections of works of art, including over 450 paintings, priceless library collections in the form of old prints and manuscripts, collections of furniture and porcelain.
Unfortunately, in March 1945, as a result of the actions of the Red Army, the Słobice palace was burnt down and its equipment plundered. Only the perimeter walls of the palace body, built on the plan of a flattened letter “H”, and fragments of the wall of the side galleries have survived in full.
Despite the damage done here, the ruins of the palace still make an amazing impression and attract history enthusiasts and explorers from both Poland and Germany. It is said that in the underground tunnels of the palace there are 2 levels of cellars, in which the Amber Room could have been hidden from being plundered .
