Krulikarnia (Museum of the Sculpture of Xavier Dunikowski)
Poland, Warsaw

Krulikarnia is a sculpture museum of Xavier Dunikowski, which is a branch of the National Museum in Warsaw. The museum is located in the idyllic palace of Palladio, with the same name "Krulikarnya". This name dates back to the 17th century, when an animal nursery with rabbits was created in the palace park to hunt them, as was fashionable in those days. The palace was designed by the famous architect Domenico Merlini, and was built at the end of the 18th century under the leadership of the architect Charles Tomatis, who was invited by the Polish king Stanislav Augustus Ponyatovsky. Since then, the owners of the palace have repeatedly changed, the palace has been rebuilt several times, its design and interior have changed. In 1879, the Krulikarni building was completely burned down, and its reconstruction was carried out under the direction of the Puslowski family, using modern achievements in Polish restoration work. During the Warsaw Uprising, the palace was empty again, and after the Second World War it was nationalized by the communist government. In 1948, it was decided to give the premises of the Krulikarni Palace to accommodate the sculptural works of the famous artist Xavier Dunikovsky. The reconstruction of the palace was completed in 1965, a year after the death of Danikovsky. This date is considered the beginning of the foundation of the Xavier Danikovsky Sculpture Museum in the Krulikarnia Palace. The museum presents the largest sculpture collection in Poland, including works from the beginning of the 15th century to the present. In Krulikarn, exhibitions, meetings, conferences, film screenings, concerts and outdoor events are organized in the romantic park surrounding the palace.
