Photographer's Note

Pepowo is a village in Gostyn County, Greater Poland Voivodeship, in west-central Poland. It is the seat of the gmina (administrative district) called Gmina Pepowo.

The first palace in Pepowo was built in the late-17th century for Adam Florian Konarzewski. In the latter part of the 18th century, it was thoroughly renovated by Jozef Mycielski, head of Konin county, and great-grandson of Adam Florian Konarzewski.
The estate remained in the hands of the Mycielski family till 1876.
Between the end of the 19th century and the end of World War II, Pepowo belonged to a German family. In 1945, the landed estate and the buildings were taken over by by the State Treasury. Since 1999, the palace has been private property.
Built on U-shaped groundplan, the palace is a typical Baroque "between-the-yard-and-garden" residence: on the one hand, it closes the cour d'honneur, on the other, opens itself onto the garden. Its multi-storey main building, which, in turn,
is built on rectangular groundplan, is adjoined in two corners by single-storey pavilions linked by means of impressive wrought-iron gates to two annexes. A powerful three-axis projection with frontal porch protrudes in the middle of the main body of the building.
Round arches of the porch support the 1 st-floor terrace.
The architect of the palace remains unknown; Tylman of Gamern, or his collaborator, the royal archtect Jozef Szymon Belotti are among potential designers.
The residence is surrounded by a 20-hectare historic park.
