Klobušický Palace, Prešov

The magnificent residence of the Baron Klobušičký family stands in the south part of the square belonging to the conservation area on the east side of Main Street (house No. 22). It was built on the spot of old estate and craft houses in the mid-18th century. The two-storey late Baroque palace with a closed courtyard has an interesting long front 11-axis facade. The second floor level is within the seven-window axes richly decorated with stucco from the Italian masters with figural motifs. The cartouches show the central scene of the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary. An eccentrically placed main portal on the ground floor is highlighted with a cragged overdoor with the Klobušický family coat of arms. One part of the palace originally contained a large French park reaching to the former eastern walls. In the first half of the 19th century a German theatre functioned at the Palace, established by the doctor P Krieger.
