The mansion once stood among the forests of the Silesian Beskids, and it was only brought to the Vistula in 1986. The mansion was erected on the Przysłop clearing in 1898 by Archduke Frederick Habsburg. It often hosted crowned heads, who liked to shoot beautiful birds - capercaillies.

For centuries, hunting was a privileged occupation of kings, princes, aristocracy and nobility. The forests of the Silesian and Żywiec Beskids were liked by representatives of various lines of the Habsburg dynasty. The Przysop clearing, lying on the southern arm of Barania Góra, was considered the most convenient place for hunters to stay. After World War I, the palace (from 1925) served as a mountain shelter, and it fortunately survived the war to welcome tourists until the 1970s. Tourist and Touring Society, Vistula Branch in Wisła, Tourist Service Office operating at PTTK, exhibition "Głuszec in the forests of the Silesian Beskids" and the escape room "Zagadek Castle."
