In Rzeszów a couple of interesting pieces of the 18th and 19th century architecture stand till today. The early 17th century Bernardine monastery has sumptuous Baroque interiors. North-east of Rzeszów, the Bernardine monastery in Leżajsk is home to the famous organ dating from 1693, complete with its 5,900 organ-pipes. In Łańcut, to the east of Rzeszów, stands one of the country’s most important magnate residences. The two-storey construction with a courtyard was built in the late 16th century and the magnificent park in the 17th. Its interiors are lavishly furnished and decorated with paintings. Among the buildings in the park are the orangey and a Romantic little castle. The old stable and coach-house buildings are given over to the museum of carriages, containing one of the most exquisite collections of carriages and stage coaches.
