Łazienki Park

Encompassing nearly 80 hectares (200 acres), the Royal Łazienki Park is Warsaw's largest park. Within its expansive grounds, visitors can explore a botanical garden, a theater, numerous palaces, and the renowned sculpture of Frederic Chopin.

Lazienki Park

Constructed in the 17th century in a purely Baroque style, the Royal Lazienki Park gained its name from the large lake pavilion where royalty used to bathe (lazienki means 'baths' in Polish).

Warsaw's largest park, spanning nearly 80 hectares (200 acres), boasts features like a significant lake, a Roman-style theater, the iconic statue of Chopin, the Belvedere Palace, the White House, the Temple of Diana, and the Lazienki Palace. Several of these structures had to be reconstructed after German bombings during the Warsaw Uprising.

A stroll through Lazienki Park may also treat you to sightings of squirrels and peacocks.

Lazienki Palace

Sitting on an artificial island above the park's lake is the grand Lazienki Palace, a neoclassical royal residence erected in the 17th century. Renowned as the Island Palace due to its enchanting location, it appears to float on the water!

World War II caused exterior damage to the Lazienki Palace, necessitating subsequent repairs. Today, it's a museum showcasing the art and luxury of the Polish kings of that era. The rooms retain their original furniture, and the tiles adorning the elegant ballroom date back to the 18th century.

Furthermore, the Lazienki Palace displays a collection of costumes spanning different periods and styles.
