Wojewódzki Szpital dla Psychicznie i Umysłowo Chorych (Provincial Hospital for Mental and Nervous Diseases)

Aleja Tysiąclecia 30

A hospital complex built in 1857-1863 in the neo-Gothic style after the design of Richard Schiller, a graduate of the famous Berlin Building Academy. The size of the complex, the modernity of technical solutions applied, the extensive park and landscape area allowed classifying the Bolesławiec hospital as a top-level, European-class solution as well as the best implementation of this kind in Silesia. After the modernisation and expansion in 1909-1913, the number of patients tripled (up to 1150) and next to the new hospital buildings a church, two orangeries, a mortuary and autopsy room as well as numerous utility buildings were erected. Apart from the adjacent park and garden, the complex included a nearby forest, where a small hospital cemetery was located.

In the hospital area, a memorial boulder was placed to commemorate Wilhelm von Blandowski who died here in 1878, an outstanding botanist and writer who travelled to Australia where he studied and documented fauna and flora for 10 years.
