History abstract

Łazany, located near Wieliczka, date back to the 14th century. In the Middle Ages, they were owned by several knightly families: Niewiaromski, Krez, Dmosicki and Osiecki. In the mid-16th century, the entire estate was taken over by the Lubomirski family, whose prominent representative – Sebastian – founded a parish church in the village at the turn of the 16th and 17th centuries. The church had an extremely interesting architectural concept, heraldic sculptural detail and a burial chapel. In the following centuries, Łazany passed from the hands of the Kalinowski family to the hands of the Russocki family from Brzezie of the Zadora coat of arms, who held the village until the end of the period of old Poland. At the beginning of the 19th century the estate was taken over by Thomas Chromy von Ruhmfeld from Wieliczka, who built a classicistic manor house in the village. Around 1830, the estate was inherited by his son Dyzma, a participant of the November Uprising (1831) and the Cracow Uprising (1846). In the middle of the 19th century, Łazany became a base for insurgent troops and was hit by crop failure and cholera epidemic. From around 1850, subsequent parish priests dealt with the restoration and renovation of the parish church, often thanks to the support of the temple's collators (among others Adolf Lipowski from Lipowitz and Zdzisław Dunin Brzeziński). During World War I, the manor and the estate were occupied alternately by the troops of the changing front – Austrian or Russian. In the interwar period, further refurbishments were carried out, this time including the repairs of the farm buildings of the former manor farm. The next armed conflict went on in Łazany relatively peacefully, excluding only the disgraceful behaviour of the German police towards the local population.
