Overview

Rogalin is primarily famous for its 18th-century Polish Baroque palace of the Raczyński family, and the adjacent Raczyński Art Gallery, housing a permanent exhibition of paintings by the Polish and foreign artists of international renown including Paul Delaroche and Claude Monet as well as the famous Jan Matejko's large-size painting Joanna d'Arc (see a fragment below). The gallery was founded by Count Edward Aleksander Raczyński. Rogalin is also known for its putatively 1000-year-old oak trees (Polish: Dęby Rogalińskie) on the flood plains of the Warta and the historical St. Marcellinus Church, whose design was inspired by the Roman temple Maison Carrée in Nîmes, France.

The last owner of the estate was Count Edward Bernard Raczyński, who in 1979–1986 was President of the Polish Republic in exile. His sarcophagus is deposited in the Raczyński Mausoleum, under the church in Rogalin. In his testament, Count Raczyński bequeathed his estate in Rogalin (including the family palace, gallery, library, and church) to the Polish people.

Geography

Much of the surrounding landscape forms the protected area of recognized natural and ecological value known as the Rogalin Landscape Park.
