The King... the Castle

The King... the Castle
Made by JoannaRB2009
In the very center of Poland, on the on the left bank of the river Warta, the Bishop’s Castle of Uniejów has been built, while the small town of Uniejów was located on the right, higher bank of the river. Originally, a gothic defensive fortress a characteristic mediaeval donjon, later rebuilt as a Renaissance Bishop’s residence. Huge park of ca 36 ha. with many exotic trees, partly maintained by three gardeners, partly wild, is situated around and behind the castle. Today a hotel and a conference centre. History: The Uniejów castle has been originally built between 1360-1365, at the request by the Gniezno archbishop Jarosław Bogoria Skotnicki, on the small artificial hill as a gothic fortress. The castle had been constructed on the place where probably the wooden castle stood before, burnt by the Teutonic knights. The castle has been a part of the whole system of defence of Polish Kingdom under Casimir the Great. Additionally it had served as protected place to store the jewels from the Gniezno cathedral in case of war. It had in the 14th century three cannons, ten guns and a number of other defensive arms. Between 1525-1534 the castle had been rebuilt into the Renaissance Bishops residence and the chapel added by Stanisław from Gomolina. In the 17th century, the castle has been again rebuilt. As this part of Poland had been taken at the end of the 18th century by Prussia and its government confiscated bishop’s property, the castle stood empty until the Napoleon wars, when first, the Princedom of Poland and later Kingdom of Poland with the Russian Tsar as a King has been created and Uniejów found itself within the Kingdom borders. In 1836 the castle of Uniejów had been given to the Russian army general Karol Toll, together with the whole town of the Uniejów, surrounding farmlands and the title of a count for his merits in suppressing the Polish November Uprising of 1830. Estonian born general Toll, inhabited the castle with his family and in 1848, his son Alexander Toll rebuilt the castle, adding the classicist style western façade to it and creating the big park behind. In 1918 as Poland regained independence, the castle became Polish state property and served as a high school.
