There are also numerous monuments well worth a visit in Jadwisin. We recommend you see the Neoclassical Radziwill family Palace dating from late 19th century. Originally, it was owned by Prince Maciej and his wife Jadwiga. Since the 1920s it has been operating as a hotel.
Another interesting place is the ruins of Jerzy Szaniawski’s house. Szaniawski was an outstanding Polish playwright and columnist who lived and worked in Jadwisin. Built in 1838, the house caught fire in 1977. It now lies in ruins. In addition, there is a sculpture of Saint Stanislaus Kostka made by the famous Ludwik Kauffman.

There are approximately 1,000 permanent inhabitants in Jadwisin. However, in spring and summer seasons the visitor number increases. Tourists are mostly attracted by the village’s access to Zegrze Reservoir and the unique-for-this-region microclimate.
The village most probably took its name from Jadwiga Radziwill, the wife of Prince Maciej.
During archaeological diggings, different monuments from the Bronze Age and Roman Empire period were found in Jadwisin. Since the 1970s, Jadwisin has become a reserved area and in the 90s, it was placed on the Archaeological Photo of Poland (a map of archaeological sites in Poland).
