Middle wing of the Royal Palace in Wrocław, originally a palace of the Prussian monarchy, the palace now houses the city museum. Initially a Baroque palace of Heinrich Gottfried von Spätgen, it was built in 1717 in a Viennese style. In 1750, after Prussia took control over Silesia in the First Silesian War, the palace was purchased by the Prussian king Frederick the Great and was converted into his residence.
In May 1945 the palace was heavily damaged during the siege of the city at the end of the Second World War. The remaining wings were adapted to host the Archeological Museum (until 1999) and the Ethnographic Museum (until 2004). In 2008 a renovation was finished and a new museum was established, presenting 1,000 year history of Wrocław.

a stunning palace this. Obviously the renovation was performed exquisitely and the result is a restoration of former grandeur and a real delight. Your capture is perfect too, with amazing detail, lights and colours. Stunning!

This is a beautiful building and a very neat garden. You have taken a fine photo with lovely, well saturated colours. The few persons standing at the entrance also contribute to the pleasant atmosphere.

A very attractive building with this kind of superior architecture. You have cropped the picture in an interesting way, leaving just a pert of the close building. The jet track in the sky creates a good balance in the view. A very beautiful garden too.

come da tua abitudine i colori splendenti e la nitidezza mettono in risalto un soggetto interessante.
Perfetta la composizione che ai colori caldi del cielo contrappone l'azzurro intenso del cielo in una bella combinazione non solo di colori, ma anche di forme.
Ciao e buona serata
