About tidvis activities
Surely you know the appearance of our castle perfectly. But did you know that he didn't always look like that? Already in the sixteenth century, buildings were built between the gothic shape of the castle and the bridge, on the so-called southern scab. At the end of the seventeenth century, bishop Jan Stanisław Zbąski ordered the reconstruction of the existing free-standing outbuilding, raising it and connecting it with the castle. As a result of this reconstruction, the first palace on the scab was created, which was later expanded and renovated by subsequent bishops – Teodor Andrzej Potocki, Krzysztof Andrzej Jan Szembek, Adam Stanisław Grabowski and Ignacy Krasicki.

What happened to the palace? After the first partition of the Polish, the castle in Lidzbark Warmiński ceased to serve as the episcopal seat and the idea of dismantling the entire complex appeared, which was in worse and worse condition. Eventually, it was decided to demolish only the palace, which was done at the turn of 1839 and 1840.

Are you curious what the palace on the scab could look like and what functions were performed by the rooms inside it? If so, in 2 years you must visit the Warmia Castle/ Museum in Lidzbark Warmiński, where using augmented reality you will be able to see the virtual reconstruction of the palace that we are working on!

The project is implemented from the series "Conservation and restoration of the fourteenth-century castle in Lidzbark Warmiński – pearls of Gothic architecture in Poland – III stage", implemented from funds received from Lslandia, Liechtenstein and Norway as part of EEA funds, as well as the Minister of Culture of National Heritage and Sport and the Self-Government of the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship.

Together we work for a Europe that is green, competitive, and inclusive.
