In memory of a great writer

Museum of Maria Konopnicka in Żarnowiec

Maria Konopnicka lived in an 18th-century manor house in Żarnowiec, donated to her by her grateful compatriots, with Maria Dulębianka. For many years, it was her summer residence and a base for her foreign travels as well as her social and literary activities. Konopnicka's descendants were forever connected with the village, using the estate for underground activity - the manor was not only the headquarters of the Home Army Inspectorate Krosno but also a small centre of cultural life in the area. The museum was established in 1957 after the daughter of an outstanding writer donated the estate to the Polish nation. The preserved interiors impress with the lightness of style and taste of the former owner.
