Palace on the Island, Warsaw

Historic Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Go back to the time of Saxon kings at Palace on the Island, an 18th-century Baroque palace and a former royal residence that originally was erected as a bathing pavilion. The building, richly decorated with stuccos, statues, and paintings, is bordered by ponds, canals, and gardens of the city's royal baths park. Look for a painting of a silenus with bacchants in the Bacchus room. The Neoclassical rotunda decorated in yellow and white marble with figures of the Polish kings occupies the central portion of the palace. Go to the picture gallery on the other side of the rotunda, which features minor works by Rubens and Rembrandt. The palace also houses royal apartments, a king's cabinet, royal bed chambers, a cloakroom, and an officer's room.
