Why locals love it

The Royal Castle is the best example of the fine rebuilding process in the Old Town. It was completely destroyed during the World War 2 yet now it shines just like before, being a great testimony of long and troublesome Polish history.

Why you should visit it

The interior is like from a fairy tale but don't be fooled easily - everything is brand new (the castle was reopened in 1979). If you want to see how Warsaw used to look like there's a great collection of paintings by Bernardo Bellotto - they were used as an example when the city was rebuilt

Special tip

on Sundays the entrance is free of charge!

I was feeling sorry about the heavy past of Poland, between Germans and Russians the amazing Poles have been able to resuscitate their glorious past with skills, talent and taste. This palace is quite impressive.
