History

Rydlówka is a historic manor house in the classicist style, located in Bronowice Małe - once a village near Kraków, now a district of Krakow - at ul. Tetmajera 28. Known primarily as the place of the famous wedding reception of Lucjan Rydel, a Krakow-based poet, and Jadwiga Mikołajczykówna, a girl from Bronowice - the Bride and Groom from the iconic Polish stage play The Wedding (Wesele by Stanisław Wyspiański).
The manor house was built in its original shape in 1894; it was built by the painter Włodzimierz Tetmajer on land bought from his father-in-law, Jacenty Mikolajczyk. Tetmajer’s hospitable house was eagerly visited by Young Poland's painters and writers, who - fascinated by folk and rural folklore - came to Bronowice in search of artistic inspiration.
One of the many guests to the manor house was Tetmajer’s friend, Lucjan Rydel, who bought the house from the owner in 1908. Rydel entrusted the manor’s reconstruction to architect Józef Pokutyński, who gave it its present shape. The manor house, commonly referred to as Rydlówka, remains the property of the Rydel family to this day.

Since 1969, the Rydlówka hosted the Museum of Young Poland. In 2018, following a short break in its activities and after carrying out the necessary renovation, it was re-opened under the auspices of the Historical Museum of the City of Krakow.
