For most people, modern Logoisk is known for its ski center, but the small town also has something to see in terms of historical attractions. Thus, in the very center of Logoisk, a landscape park has been preserved, where a massive Tyszkiewicz Palace, from which today only the ruins of the left wing remain.

What did the Tyshkevich palace look like in Logoisk?
This is what the palace looks like on a packet of 20 tbsp. Zdymak from Kalektsy K. Shastovskaga, fish of 1923.

Logoisk passed to the Tyshkevichs in 1528 from the Czartoryskis and remained with them until 1917. It is not surprising that representatives of this prominent family decided to build their family estate in these parts.

The construction of the palace began in 1814 on the site of the old wooden Tyszkiewicz castle, which, by the way, stood on the site of the castle founded by the Czartoryskis. In 1819, construction work on the classical estate was completed. The building was a rectangular volume on a high base, the central part was distinguished by a massive portico on 10 columns of the Doric order.

On the sides of the building there were symmetrical two-story buildings (the left one has survived to this day in the form of ruins).

From the park side, the palace looked a little different and was decorated with a bay window and a spiral staircase. In Napoleon Orda's drawing you can just see this part of the palace.

After Logoisk became part of the BSSR in 1919, the palace began to be used for a variety of administrative purposes. For some time, the NKVD prison was located here, and during the Second World War - a German prison. After the end of the war, they decided to blow up the ancient palace.
