The Spiski Palace — Twardowski in the Tatras
In the heart of Krakow #11
The tenement house, situated between Szewska and Szczepańska Streets, owes its name to Sebastian Lubomirski, the starost of Spiš, and is a testimony to the great role Spiš and contacts with Hungary played in the development of Krakow. The palace served official functions for many years - it was here that the representatives of the Austrian authorities lived after the city was incorporated into the Habsburg monarchy, but there was also a place for theatre performances, restaurants, a colonial shop and a photo shop. One of the most interesting rooms is the room decorated by Włodzimierz Tetmajer with a frieze depicting the legend of the master Twardowski.
