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.

  • Great place to actually see the history of the poles. The English audio guide is superb! The castle course is about 2 hours. The reconstructed rooms are a great sight, and the story they tell is interesting.
  • It is free on sundays, the inside was like any other palace. Nothing special to report. You must cloak backpacks etc.
  • Castle's rooms look amazingly beautiful, lots of golden features. Thinking the Castle was destroyed in 1944, it is rebuilt very nicely.
  • Absolutely brilliant. This is the best warsaw attraction in my opinion and is stunning to say the least. Whatever happens just don't miss this. You haven't seen warsaw till you see this. Free on Sundays
  • Ideal for guided walking tour. Nice restaurants and bars around.
