Royal Castle, Warsaw Reviews

  • This castle is awesome located in the old town, it was rebuilt after the old castle destroyed during the second world war. It is luxurious, well maintained and lots to see. Walk / Stroll though the different rooms and appreciate the art and grandeur, they have been decorated / restored in accordance with the past splendor. Impressive paintings with still some original pieces. It is worth getting the audio guide to better understand each place. The multimedia presentation next to cloak room summarizes the history of the castle (destruction and restoration) and must not be missed. Highly recommended!

  • We went on Wednesday because you get to do a shorter tour but for free. It is incredible to think that this place had been completely destroyed during the war. It has been restored beautifully with amazing attention to detail. There was also the treat of being able to see some Rembrandt paintings! A must see if you're in Warsaw

  • a great classic European castle with lots of artwork and traditional furniture on display. lots of classical work to see and will keep you entertained for many hours. The architecture was my personal favourite and the courtyard at the entrance is very grand if you do not want to go inside the museum.

  • This place has a deep history. The old palace was almost completely ruined during WW2, but the inside interior was saved in advanced and then placed back in the reconstructed place. I highly recommend the exhibit on how the palace was rebuild!

  • Very impressive, even more so when it was fully rebuilt from scratch after the bombings in the war. Very luxurious with excellent reproduction or replacement decor. The art collections are equally impressive also. Well worth a visit to round off any historical trip to Warsaw.
