Wilanów Palace, Warsaw

(4.4/5 based on 1,100+ 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.

  • WE only walked the grounds of this Palace as the inside was not open the day we visited. The grounds and the outside are spectacular, beautiful sights and very peaceful especially down by the water. W...  more »
  • The estate of King Jan III Sobieski is an exceptional place not only "on a map of Warsaw and Polish, but I would say that also on the map of Europe. The Palace looks out at any time of the year, whether it's day or night. The Interior of the Palace is a true gem of the art of architecture, sculpture and painting. A tour can take a few hours. And this is probably the biggest hassle. Council can not go without attention next to works of art and refined interior peace, where there is a lot. The Palace is huge and delicious, and it's tiring. Already in the middle of the tour I had too much experience to continue with constant curiosity. It is worth to join a group or hire a guide because the same hard to read all the hidden sometimes values. You can also choose to get there on Thursday, because it is for free:)

  • 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.
