Branicki & Szaniawski Palaces

  ul. Miodowa 6-8     24 May 2024
The neighbouring Branicki and Szaniawski Palaces are two stunning noble residences from the last century of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The Szaniawski Palace at ul. Miodowa 8, named after the first noble family residents, was built at the beginning of the 18th century, and was later the residence of the famed Ostrowski Polish noble family. It was first reworked into its current classical style in 1812. Branicki Palace at number 6 came later in 1740, and aimed to capture the magic of French rococo architecture, in addition to having a horseshoe-shaped layout with stunning façades and rooftop windows.
One of 3 garden spaces of the joint Branicki-Szaniawski Palace complex, now home to the 5-star Hotel Verte, Warsaw, Autograph Collection.
When homeowner Count Jan Klemens Branicki died in 1771, the estate was inherited by his wife, Izabella Poniatowska, the sister of King Stanisław August Poniatowski and an influential figure of the Enlightenment era in Poland. The palace was a congregation point for many Enlightenment-era creatives of whom Izabella was a patron. Both palaces were destroyed in WWII, and were later reconstructed using Renaissance-era paintings as a reference. These romantic buildings from 'straight out of a painting' were brought together in 2022, when the Marriott's Autograph Collection opened their first Polish property here as the Hotel Verte, Warsaw, Autograph Collection. This exquisite 5-star accommodation option with 94 rooms also features KUK Restaurant by Maciej Majewski.
