2. Royal £azienki Park and The £azienki Królewskie Palace

 

Warsaw Old Town Secrets

Historic centre and oldest part of the city, it is also a living, breathing cultural saloon. Founded in the 13th century as the prince's castle, it is surrounded by walls. During World War II, 90% of it was destroyed, but thanks to its excellent restoration and recovery, in 1980 it was granted the status of a UNESCO World Heritage List. Currently, it is a lively place, bustling with tourists and locals, and full of galleries, cafés and restaurants.

Royal £azienki Park and The £azienki Królewskie Palace

One of the most beautiful palace/garden complexes in Europe, founded in the 17th century. At one time, there was a zoo in this densely wooded area where the kings would hunt. The last Polish king, Stanislaw August Poniatowski, a devotee and patron of the arts, then decided to create the largest and most beautiful garden in Warsaw on this spot, and he called it £azienki Królewskie (which literally translates to 'the Royal Baths'). This beautiful park’s surprising name comes from the exquisite and opulent royal baths built into the palace – these types of baths were a rarity at the time and a real symbol of luxury.
