Puławy

 

a city in Poland, in Lublin Województwo on the Vistula River. Population, 39,800 (1973). A center of the chemical industry, Puławy has the country’s largest nitrogen fertilizer combine.

In the 18th century it became the residence of the Czartoryski family. In the English-style park are a palace, originally built in the baroque style circa 1676 (architect Tylman a Gameren) and rebuilt circa 1809; the Marynka Palace (1790–94); a church (1800–03); and two pavilions, called the Temple of the Sibyl (1798–1801) and the Gothic House (1800–09).
