Henryk Sienkiewicz, who once got the Noble Prize lived at Oblegorek. The little palace and the ground around was given to him by the grateful readers and the nation. A Polish novelist, a storyteller, and the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1905. Henry Sienkiewicz wrote “Quo Vadis?”, “The Trilogy”? (1896). His strongly Catholic worldview deeply marked his writing. Sienkiewicz’s works have been published in 50 languages.

“And Peter understood that neither Caesar nor all his legions could overcome the living truth, — that they could not overwhelm it with tears or blood, and that now its victory was beginning. He understood with equal force why the Lord had turned him back on the road. That city of pride, crime, wickedness, and power was beginning to be His city, and the double capital, from which would flow out upon the world government of souls and bodies.” (from Quo Vadis?)
