Photographer's Note

From a bicycle trip.

Today I am showing a bedroom in which the Polish poet Adam Mickiewicz visited during his stay in the palace .

Smielow is a settlement in the administrative district of Gmina Zerków, within Jarocin County, Greater Poland Voivodeship, in west-central Poland. It lies approximately 4 kilometres north of Zerkow, 16 km north of Jarocin, and 56 km south-east of the regional capital Poznan.

Smielow is famous for the only Polish museum devoted to Adam Mickiewicz, Polish national poet, who stayed in the village for few weeks in late summer of 1831. Museum is located in the classical-Palladian palace, designed by the leading Polish classicist, Stanislaw Zawadzki in 1797. The palace is believed to be one of the greatest examples of neo-classical architecture in Poland.
