    Full Description

    The Royal Łazienki in Warsaw was transformed in the 18th century into the summer residence of Stanisław August Poniatowski.

    Throughout his 33-year reign, Stanisław August, the last king of Poland, amassed a collection of paintings, sculptures, prints, as well as coins and medals, made by both European and Polish artists. With time, the Royal Łazienki became the first in Poland modern museum open to the public.

    Today, the Royal Łazienki is known as ‘the most beautiful place in Warsaw’. Each year, the gardens are visited by more than 2 million people. The royal residence is also one of the most prestigious places in the capital city. It hosts many prestigious cultural events. The Chopin concerts, Festival of Baroque Opera, Zone of Silence Festival, Festival of Lights, Winter Musical Salons and Poetry Salons are popular recurring events.
