Adam Mickiewicz Museum in Śmiełów is located in a Classicist palace of the late 18th c., a work by architect S. Zawadzki. A visit of the Palace is hands-on experience of venues related to Adam Mickiewicz and offers a unique contact wih his memorabilia. The great Polish Romantic poet visited Śmiełów at the invitation of Hieronim Gorzeńki (the then owner of the Palace) in August 1831. The poet was trying to cross the boarder to the Polish Kingdom, at that time in the midst of an insurgence. The stay in Wielkopolska was an important moment of Mickiewicz’s biography as a poet.
