City Postavy owes much to its development Anthony Tyzengauz (there is another spelling of the surname - Tyzengauz). It was he who was an active reformer and innovator in his native estate. He managed to develop a network of manufactories, raised culture and art. Tyzengauz founded his residence in Postavy in the middle of the 18th century.

However, the construction of the future palace did not proceed quickly and was often interrupted. As a result, only the descendants of Antony managed to complete the manor-palace in the first half of the 19th century.

An Italian architect was invited to work on the palace Giuseppe di Sacco. He has already managed to work with Tyzengauz in Grodnoand also led the project estates in Shchorsy.

The palace in Postavy has a U-shape. It is interesting that the side wings were erected first, and only then the central part was built. Most notable is the six-columned portico, which was completed only in 1830.

In architectural terms, the building belongs to the architecture of classicism. The external appearance has not changed much, unlike the interior decoration.

In addition to the Tyzengauz Palace, it is worth highlighting the park, which is partially preserved in its original form.

After the Second World War, a hospital building was located within the walls of the palace, which functions here today. Therefore, it is quite difficult to visit one of the main attractions of the city of Postavy (after all, hospitals are not conducive to walking).

Anthony Tyzengauz never saw the completed version of the palace; he died in March 1785. He did not have direct heirs, so the estate was completed under other owners, although they bore the name Tyzengauz. (sister's heirs)

It seems like an interesting place, but as I understand it, getting there will not work?
