Goetz Palace

The palace and park Goetz Okocimskich is located very close to the brewery Okocimski, founded in 1845 by a German who came to John the Evangelist Goetz (1815-1893). It was built in 1898 by his son John Albin Goetz Okocimski (1864-1931).

Stars will burn through any mists, 
And the ladies’ eyes, through rains of fate, 
Still beamed upon the bloody lists 
And lit the joust of Love and Hate.
— The Tournament: Joust II., by Sidney Lanier.
