Summer travels with the Automotive and Technology Museum in Otrębusy
What better way to travel than in a stunning vintage vehicle, brought to Karolin by our neighbours at the Automotive and Technology Museum in Otrębusy? On Saturday 20 August between 12 and 6pm, you can admire Packard, Oakland and Horch automobiles in our stunning palace grounds, and even take a ride around the area. This event marks the beginning of a partnership with the Automotive and Technology Museum.

Craft workshops
Learning new skills generally makes for an exciting journey in itself! At 12pm join us for a three hour worskshop during which we'll be making colourful "pająki" - traditional hanging decorations made using straw and crepe paper. We'll talk about what these looked like and how they were made in different regions, using this as inspiration to create our own designs which can then be hung around the home.
