Compositional aspects of the palace and garden complex in Otwock Wielki
Summary.

The palace and garden complex in Otwock Wielki is situated in the Masovian voivodeship, southeast of Warsaw. The palace complex with the main garden establishment on the island on the Rokola Lake is an example of a classic late baroque garden from the turn of the 17th cen­tury. The main goal of the study was to analyse the spatial composition and scenic connections of the palace and garden complex and to identify the accumulations from later transformations. The achievement of those goals might be used for determination of the bases of protection and cre­ation of the cultural landscape of this region and for revalorisation of the palace and garden complex in Otwock Wielki. As results from the field investigations and cartographic analyses of archival materials, the estate has retained numerous elements of a regular garden within the garden on the island. Apart from that, the accumulations of later transformations and the effects of revalorisation made after 1945 are still noticeable. Simple dimensional relationships are noticeable in the composition. They are based on the module making the width of the main frontal façade of the palace, whereas major nodes of the composition could be found in the avant-corps of the palace front, in the fountain in the garden salon and at the junctions of main roads. The modifications of the module segments marking the lengths and widths of the composition elements changed at the 1 : 2 ratio. The main spatial elements were laid out according to the golden ratio proportions. The investigations and analyses prove that it is possible to restore the original spatial arrangement of the estate on the island.
