Kasyno oficerskie or the officers casino and mess hall is located off of Poznanska Road, in the village of Biedrusko, the region of Wielkopolska, in the district of Poznan, the municipality of Dry Forest, in Poland.
Originally built during the late 1800’s the Officer’s Mess is possibly part of the neoclassical palace built by Louis Hunh for Otto Albrecht von Treskow. Not much history is known except that it was rebuilt after damages in 1904. It was later used as an officer garrison and social gathering place. Later after World War II it began to fall into disrepair, a state that it remains in today. It is near the Warta River and offers beautiful scenery. Certain windows are boarded up and parts where the roofs have collapsed have been tarped over but these things do fall in or tear and otherwise go un-repaired afterwards. Windows have been smashed or are completely missing at some parts and the weather wreaks havoc on the historic place. The dereliction and decay goes on but many hope there will be a future for this Officer’s Mess.
The excellent photography is by Zuzanna Kazmierczak and the tip about the place from Lukasz Szudarski. Thanks!
This building is established as a registered Monument in Poland.
