Polish kings of the 18th century spent their summers at The New Castle. The castle forms an architectural complex with the old castle set on the other side of an arch bridge. The castles are home to the city’s historical and archaeological museum. The museum features about 7,000 artifacts, including artwork, old printed and handwritten books, weapons, icons, and religious items. Look for the relief of a Soviet coat of arms on the pediment of the main entrance. A sculpture of a mythical chthonic creature perched on the main gate represents a woman with a lioness body carrying a little boy on her back.

The New Castle Reviews
This museum makes an effort in having English-language descriptions of its exhibits and this is most positive. The exhibits themselves are interesting in the context of Grodno and of the wider history... more »

Great historic place! General Seimas of the First Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth passed here. In this building, during the last Sejm of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in 1793, an agreement was signed on dividing the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth with Russia and Prussia, and in 1795 the Polish King and Grand Duke of Lithuania Stanislav Avgust Ponyatovsky signed the act of renunciation. The king lived in it until 1797. In one part of the palace were the royal chambers, in the other - the premises intended for the meetings of the Sejm. For the needs of the Seym, in 1726, a special building was constructed. After 1750, a dome-covered chapel was built, and the entrance gate was also partially preserved. After the division of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, the Russian authorities staged a hospital and barracks in the palace.
