The Royal Castle

Warsaw, Poland
4.7 / 111
An architectural and cultural monument in the center of Warsaw, erected in the XVI-XVII centuries by the Lithuanian prince Sigismund. During the Northern War, the castle was sacked by the Swedes and gradually dilapidated. It is noteworthy that in 1829 the Russian emperor Nicholas II was married to the Polish kingdom (at that time the Commonwealth was part of the Russian Empire). The modern Royal Castle is a copy of the building blown up by the Nazis in World War II.

A nice and rather big palace. Definitely recommend getting the audio guide, we went on the free day, so it wasn’t included by default. As a history nerd, I liked it quite a bit but it’s definitely not for everyone. Furthermore, the design.. Read more »

Beautiful public place for fun. The architecture of this building is just superb. Lots of restaurants are here to enjoy food and sitting. An icon in old part of Warsaw one must visit.
Nice place to visit, it's located at the main square and easily accessible. Lots of nice restaurants to choose from. Go very early in the morning to capture nice pictures before groups of tourists flock and crowd up the place. Enjoy!!!
The castle is one of the „must see“ places of Warsaw. The tickets are cheap and I recommend the audio guide. The staff is friendly and the castle with all its rooms and the history behind it is just amazing. If you go there in the week ch.. Read more »

Presiding Warsaw’s Old Town a place that is a must. Now closed due to COVID but inside has a very nice museum that I recommend visiting. During Christmas the illumination on its facade is beautiful.
A beautiful building which, like most of the old town of Warszawa has been rebuilt using original plans. It's a shame all the wonderful and beautiful things which would have adorned the walls, rooms etc were all stolen during WW2 ??

This place is filled with history, Polish and European, for all ages. Try to visit an exhibition, and remember that school-aged children from 7 to 16 only pay 1 zl for entrance to both the castle and temporary exhibits. A great place to start or fi.. Read more »
Greatly kept palace in good state. The gardens are quite small but look nice. Interior is beautiful and spacious.
Wonderful! Definitely a must to see place in Warsaw. It is very beautiful not only from the outside, but from the inside as well. In the winter, there is a big Christmas tree in front of it.
Here every Wednesday in the year 2020, it's free entry. Such a magnificent place. My eyes were blur because of the gold.
The staff was rude, especially ladies selling tickets. The arrows on the floors are misleading and very much not clear. Ridiculous rules of carrying back pack on the front. Why? The rooms are huge and there is no possibility to touch a thing anyway. .. Read more »
Nice to visit, and the day I went there the ticket was free. I really liked the sculptures and paintings, and I guess that the gardens are also beautiful if you are into flora.
Awesome palace, with hundreds of rooms/halls to see with original pieces. A must to visit in Warsaw. Some exhibitions were closed due to COVID-19, but the open ones were enough as well.
