Monument & Heritage Open in this Schedule Check location

Built in the second half of the 17th century, the Wilanów Palace served as a summer Royal residence for King John III Sobieski. Dubbed as the “Polish Versailles”, the Baroque palace, located 10km south of Warsaw’s city center, is a combination of the Parisian architecture, an Italian garden villa, and a Polish estate manor.

The rich interiors are a tribute to the military successes of the king and his family and after his death, it was enlarged and enrichened by the following owners. The first museum opened in 1805. The current one features residential rooms, suits of armor, Etruscan vases, frescoes, and a private chapel.

The museum also displays statues of ancient gods, royal portraits and busts of emperors. The park surrounding the palace represents different styles, from a Baroque Italian garden to an English-Chinese garden and it also features a pond where it is possible to rent a rowboat for sight-seeing around the property.
