Old but new castle
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
on Sundays the entrance is free of charge!
