Royal Łazienki Park & Palace Tour
Lazienki Park is one of the European finest complexes and it attracts many visitors every year. Originally laid out in the 17th century at the site of the medieval hunting forest of the Mazovian dukes by the polish aristocrat Stanislaw, Herakliusz Lubomirski. In the second half of 18th century, the last king of Poland, Stanislaw August Poniatowski, bought this property back with intention of establishing a residence-worthy monarchy.
During this tour, I will show You all charms of that complex. You will see the monument of the most outstanding Polish composer Frederic Chopin, the splendid Neoclassical Palace on the Water, and The White House– a pavilion built in the style of 18thcentury villa, where the king of France Louis XVIII stayed in 1801, then in exile.
You will also admire Theatre on Island, with a moat separating the auditorium from the stage, which was modeled as a ruined old temple in Baalbek, Myślewicki Palace designed by the famous Italian architect Domenico Merlini, for the nephew last king of Poland, Prince Jozef Poniatowski, Water Collector, Old Orangery, where in the 18th century the Theatre was built. Now it is one of the few remaining 18th-century court theatres.
