Lazienki Krolewskie is a complex made of luxurious palaces and a splendid garden; it represents one of the most beautiful planned areas, not just of Warsaw but of all Europe. It is amazing both in naturalist and architectural terms. The park was created by using the forest that was naturally growing there. It includes the famous monument in honour of Fryderyk Chopin. Among the other structures (enclosed in the Lazienki complex), we recall the Myslewicki Palace, the White House, the Old Orangery ( an authentic sample of court theatre), the Podchorazòwka (that is to say the Military College) and the amphitheater.
Warsaw’s answer to Central Park in New York City, Lazienki Park is a marvelous 17th century park and the largest in the capital city with baroque classical-style gardens that lead to the Lazienki Palace. Loosely translated as Royal Baths Park,... more it is one of Warsaw’s best known attractions and has both small and big palaces, summer homes, pavilions, mansions, cafes, restaurants, lakes and theaters that allow for a full day of activities. It is also where the Chopin Concerts take place every summer, usually every Sunday between 12:00pm and 4:00pm. Although, unlike Central Park, you won’t be able to picnic here, so leave your favorite blanket and lunch basket at home. Admission is free.
The Lazienki Park dates back to the middle ages, when it was owned by the Masovian dukes. In early 17th century, the park contained a royal menagerie. Finally it reached its present layout in the 17th and 18th century. At... more present, it is one of the most beautiful urban parks in Warsaw. One can get to see peacocks next to the Lazienki water palace. The park is the perfect place for a leisure stroll in any season, especially in spring and summer. The park is also the former summer residence of King Stanislaw August Poniatowski.
