Wilanow Palace And Museum - Review
This is one of Poland’s first public museums. It’s a bit remarkable that the museum even functions today, considering that most of its exhibits were annexed by the Nazi’s in WWII, but thankfully these were repatriated. Modelled on the Versailles by King John III Sobieski for his French wife, the palace is in the Baroque style. Its main exhibits are the gallery of Polish Royalty portraits and the Royal apartments, which include furniture, ceramics, clothing and some lovely paintings.
For most tourists though, the gardens are the true jewel of the place. Lovely the year around, but especially in the autumn, they make a delightful place to relax. A number of events and festivals are held on these grounds such as Summer Royal Concert, and occasionally, you’ll see a wedding party.
Also, visit nearby attractions which are covered in Warsaw itinerary 1 day.

Wilanow Palace And Museum, Warsaw Reviews
It is a nice option to visit while in Warsaw. It is a palace of the old polish king’s times and it is very nicely preserved and protected. It looks like new and it is full of different halls, sections and dedicated areas to visit, among them kings and old owners private rooms with the furnitures and full of details. This place has a great outside garden in that palace style, very large and full of different plants and flowers (depending on the time you visit due to the winter and the snow, of course). Also, the palace is surrounded by nature with many trees, trials and a very close lake. To get to the Wilanów Palace is very easy and quick because there is a subway station in a short distance and right besides it there is a bus station in which you just have to get a bus and leave it in the bus stop right in front of the palace. This would not take too much time, so it is very easy to access after all.
Beautiful historic palace and pretty gardens about 40 minutes outside of Warsaw easily accessible by bus. Interesting artwork, sculptures and antique furnishings. Free entry once per week (check their website for the day).
Pretty small but beautiful palace with great gardens situated about 40 minutes from the city of Warsaw. It is easily accessible via public transport from the city centre. It takes about an hour and a half to explore it and inside there are plenty of signs and information in English (witch is rather rare in Poland). Make sure you enjoy the royal apartments - they are exceptional! Also, a 20 zloti coin will come handy for the lockers! After the palace visit the gardens. There is a romantic rose garden and a lot of small paths around rich and old trees! Take a stroll and relax!
Amazing place, with beautiful gardens well maintained, close to a lake. Perfect for relaxing and enjoying a sunny day. 🌞 Very cheap the entrance ticket (only 5 zloty! ), and don't forget to stop by the "ancient" booth at exit to admire the old polish writing style!!!
Very nice place to visit. We had one very enthusiastic lady guide and these stories about the palace were amazing. Definitely need to visit it once more and plan more time for seeing the whole complex.
