The Royal Castle in Warsaw, Warsaw
(4.3/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
The official residence of Poland's monarchs for more than two centuries, The Royal Castle in Warsaw sits at the entrance of Old Town. Between the 16th and 18th centures, this castle housed the king's personal offices and served as the administrative center for the country's royal court. Devastated by foreign invaders several times over its long history, the castle underwent a massive reconstruction after World War II. Admire the majestic building, now a national monument. The castle also features a museum with a significant art collection, including two notable works by Rembrandt.

  • Fabulous interior rooms. Recommend using the audio guide if you don't speak Polish. The rather plain exterior belies the extravagant beautiful interior.

  • Although a total reconstruction of the second half of the last century, the Warsaw Castle is a landmark of history, art and architecture of this wonderful city! Must visit and with little cash you can take advantage of a very well done audio guide that is essential to introduce visitors to this building. There can be no visit to Warsaw without proper visit to this castle! at least 120 minutes visit is required! @gargio76
  • Historic place worth a visit. Right in the center of old town. Renovated authentic kings' chambers, a lot of old pictures of pre-war Warsaw. Entrance for 30zl.
  • Really awesome attraction if you're interested in art and history. It was free when I visited (Sunday).
  • Impressively restored place. The castle in itself is very beautiful and it also often hosts very interesting exhibitions.
  • I'm taking one star away because of germany. They took away all the heritage away. Though great restoration work by poland
