Wilanów Palace












During my stay in Warsaw, I visited the beautiful Wilanów Palace and gardens, located in the Wilanów District of the City of Warsaw. It was built in the 1600's as a royal residence for Polish King John III Sobieski and later enlarged by other owners. The palace is another one of Poland's official national Historic Monuments as it survived both world wars and now serves as a reminder of the culture of the Polish state before its misfortunes.
