Puławy (Pulawy)
A town on the eastern side of the river Wisla. The town is well known in Poland because of the palace located here, overlooking the river. The symbol of the town is the Temple of Sybil, erected in the palace grounds above a steep drop down to the river.
The First mention comes from the 15th century, when it was still a small fishing and trading settlement on the Wisla river. In the 1670's the Lubomirski family built a small palace here on a high bluff above the Wisla river. It was destroyed during a battle in 1706, but was rebuilt by its succesive owners.
Now Pulawy is a town of 56 000. It is well known in Poland, as the Czartoryski family rebuilt the palace and park in the 18th century, in the romantic style, totally opposed to the Classical style then in vogue in Warsaw. Unfortunately, the 20th century was a difficult time for the palace and park, the palace has lost its furnishings, the myriad of temples and other 'romantic' buildngs have suffered decay. The park itself suffered from pollution from a local factory in the 60's and 70's. The 'Temple of Sybil', built to resemble the Temple of Vesta in Rome, appears on the town's coat of arms.
Pulawy first came into importance as a settlement near a defensive residence (later to become the palace).
