In 1910, this palace was built as a home for Polish Royalty. In the years that followed, it evolved through wars and social upheaval into an agricultural educational center, a home for the mentally handicapped, and a school for disturbed children. Now it sits in decay, and there is a haunting beauty to the photos from inside.
This story is a stark reminder of how nothing lasts forever. What was once a regal and magnificent palace transformed over the years into something much different. When photographer Lucas Malkiewicz captured these images, he created a beautiful work of art. And that beauty is definitely something worth sharing.
