Wilanów Palace, Warsaw

(4.4/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
A symbol of Poland's royal heritage, Wilanów Palace features an art collection that represents generations of collecting from the country's royal families. The museum was founded in the 19th century, but much of the artwork was taken by Nazi occupiers in World War II. However, after the war ended many of the pieces were recovered and returned, including paintings by Peter Paul Rubens and Pompeo Batoni, and artifacts from the Qing Dynasty. The main floor is a series of royal rooms with Baroque decor, marble columns, chandeliers, and polished floors. The second floor houses the portrait gallery, while artifacts and private collectibles appear throughout the palace. The site is now a branch of the National Museum in Warsaw and frequently hosts lectures, events, and temporary exhibits. The palace and museum are large, so give yourself plenty of time to tour. Consider renting an audio guide in your native language for a self-guided tour. Using our custom trip planner, Warsaw attractions like Wilanów Palace can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • He bus 116, in his last stop, leaves practically in the entrance of the Palace. Tickets are bought at a small guard post that there is within the grounds of the Palace, before agreeing to it. You have to buy two tickets if you want to visit the Palace and gardens. We spend more than three hours to see both places. The Palace is very nice by outside and picturesque by inside; the real bedrooms, Grand Salon Crimson and the Etruscan room liked especially. The gardens, at least on this date, not worth much because part of them is covered (we understand that you to protect them from Frost) and are not appreciated in all its glory. There are lockers and toilets (free) to the home of her visit to the Palace. The Palace and the gardens opening hours change throughout the year, so it is best to confirm this before you go. When we were (the week Holy last), the schema of the Palace was of 9:30 to 16 and the of the gardens of 9 to 16. The price of the entrance to the Palace is 20 PLN (15 PLN with student card) and gardens 5 PLN (PLN 3 with student card).

  • We took a bus there from the centre and crossed the road. It was easy to get to, the area it's in is lovely and the palace itself looks lovely. Inside you walk around, lots of stairs (no lifts) some o...  more »
  • It is not Schönbrunn or Versailles but still on of the most exciting royal residences in Poland. Exquisite interiors immersed in diverse parks and colorful gardens.  more »

  • One of only a few historical places not devastated by WWII. Over the last few years it has been beautifully restored. Worth taking the guided trip to truly appreciate its beautiful architecture, artistry and history. The beautiful gardens lit up to music during the darker months of the year. Children will have fun walking through the maze of lights full of imaginary creatures and large scale flowers etc.
  • Reading the various reviews I expected a lot more from this royal residence. It is a beautiful complex built as a summer residence and now a museum in the palace itself. The discretely decorated rooms are unfortunately kept in complete shade and, except for some richly decorated room, are quite anonymous. Very fascinating is the palace park that allows visitors to get lost in nature between high trees and tranquil ponds. Of course you can not call the Polish Versailles but it is a beautiful building and well worth a visit! Length of the domestic tour around 90/120 minutes, the gardens require at least half a day @gargio76
  • The Palace it's a beautiful place to visit it came as a suprise for us. You can enjoy a quiet stroll amid the paintings and if you go tired of culture you can enjoy a walk outside in the gardens.
  • Polish Versalles is a 'must see in Warsaw'. Not only can you visit the inside but also its gardens which are really beatuful.
  • Italian architecture in Warsaw. Great beauty, especially the garden. Perfect spot for a lazy weekend. The cafe is poor, doesn't offer much. Overall, I recommend to visit this place.
