In the village Dołęga, in a small park, there is a charming, noble manor house, which allows you to move into the world of the 19th-century landed gentry.

The wooden manor house was erected in 1848 on a horseshoe layout by Maria and Aleksander Gunter. It represents a popular image of a Polish seat of the nobility. The whitewashed plaster covers larch walls; you can get inside through the small portico supported by two pillars. When visiting the manor house, we can learn its history and admire the mid-19th-century-style interiors: the drawing room, the dining room, the bedroom combined with the drawing room, Michał Siedlecki's rooms and the lady of the manor’s bedroom. The rooms look as if the residents left it a moment ago. There are trinkets, fabrics, furniture and memorabilia of a distinguished, Polish explorer of oceans, prof. Michał Siedlecki, who was related to the old owners of the manor house. It played an important role during the January Uprising. Secret meetings were held here and plans for the course of the uprising were prepared in the manor house. During the fighting, it functioned as a hospital where medical assistance was offered to the insurgents. It was also an important site of resistance during WWII Józef Rettinger stayed here (1888-1960); Rettinger was a literary expert, a writer, a politician, an advocate for a united Europe and an adviser to Władysław Sikorski. At the turn of the 20th century, the Kraków cultural and scientific elites often visited the Dołęga manor house: Adam Asnyk, Stanisław Wyspiański, Lucjan Rydel, Professor Michał Siedlecki and others. The manor house is surrounded by a park which features a historical wooden shrine of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Immaculate Conception.
