Wilanów Palace and gardens

Enjoy a leisurely 2-hour walk through one of Europe’s most beautiful palaces and its newly restored surrounding gardens.

Built by King John Sobieski III as a summer retreat at the close of the 17th century, the stunning grounds have since been restored to their former glory. Walk through the spectacular palace and admire its beautiful Baroque architecture, its old orangery, its fragrant rose garden, and the Chinese-style pavilions by the artificial lake. Decipher the influence of Greek mythology throughout the palace, take a closer look at its beautiful restored frescoes and sun dials, and admire thousands of stunning pieces of art, oriental artifacts, and original royal furnishings that fill the palace’s interior.

After extensively exploring the palace grounds, make your way next door to the fascinating Polish Poster Museum to see striking Polish poster art from the 19th and 20th centuries, and to learn a bit about Poland’s strong graphic tradition.

The tour lasts about 3h.
