Puslovski Palace in Kossovo
The Puslovski Palace, also known as the Kossovsky Castle, is an amazingly beautiful residence, one of the most beautiful castles in Belarus, along with the Nesvizh Palace and the Mir Castle. It is located in the Belarusian town of Kossovo, Brest region. This beautiful example of 19th century neo-Gothic architecture is also known as the Knights’ Daydream and the Miniature Castle. The palace was built by the Polish architect Franciszek Jaszczołd.
The building is crowned with twelve towers, the number of which is highly symbolic: each of them denotes a different month of the year. The four towers in the middle, in honour of the harvest months of May, June, July and August, are the tallest.
Kossovo Palace was famous for its splendid halls: the White Hall was used for exciting balls, the Black Hall for card games, and the Pink Hall for music.
Not far from Kosovo the prominent military leader and politician Tadeusz Kosciuszko was born. The owners of the land were very proud of this fact. They used their own funds to renovate the small birthplace of the national hero of Poland and the USA, an honorary citizen of France, honoring and recognizing his merits.
A beautiful park surrounded the palace, where more than 150 kinds of exotic plants grew. The park picturesquely descended to three artificial lakes and Kościuszko’s manor house.
