Rudziniec

Rudziniec is a village in Poland located in the Silesian Voivodeship near Gliwice. There are some interesting historical places worth seeing. 

The first of these is the palace built in 1840. The fire in 1874. he destroyed a large part of the village, not sparing the palace. The residence was rebuilt in 1874-76. The palace's present appearance, in the Italian neo-Renaissance style, owes its reconstruction from 1907. The last owner was Hugo von Ruffer. In the years of the Polish People's Republic, the residence shared the fate of other similar monuments for three decades - first devastated and for a long time completely abandoned, in the 1960s it was adapted for housing for employees of the State Farm and then served as a warehouse. Currently, the palace belongs to the commune of Rudziniec, it houses a primary school. The building is not well maintained, there are numerous traces of moisture on the façade, plaster falls off in places. The palace can be viewed from the outside, I also suggest going through the old park, one of the paths leads to a beautiful wooden church.
