Great Building and Park
Oct 2021 • Couples
Beautiful building in a small but very nice park with a small pond and some nice walkways. Amazingly this building was destroyed during the war and rebuilt to its former glory.

nice building in a beautiful park
Jul 2021
You can enjoy the outside of the building while you stroll in the park. Don't forget to see both sides of the palace.
It houses the national library now, it' s not a museum.

Elegant palace and attractive gardens
Apr 2019 • Friends
I walked past this elegant reconstructed palace and carefully designed gardens whilst exploring Warsaw city centre. I didn't go inside the palace. The outside looks quite impressive though and the reconstruction has been carried out well. Worth a look, and easily combined with a visit to the Warsaw Uprising monument.

Set in beautiful grounds
Apr 2019 • Couples
This palace is set in a lovely open park that makes a nice walk and is a good access to the Warsaw Uprising Monument and the old town. The entry gate on the western side was an ornate stone and iron structure that gave the park a wonderful grand entrance. The park itself was laid out in front of the palace. There were many paths through the lawns, bulbs and potted colour. At the centre was a small pond.
Access to the park is easiest via the Muranow Tram Stop. A nice spot for a walk.

Stunning Building
Apr 2019 • Solo
Walking back from the ghetto tour I came across a park, taking a stroll through this stunning park came to the palace. Didn't go inside but so lovely to admire from the gardens.

Palace of the Republic
Apr 2019 • Solo
Originally it was a 17th-century palace of the Krasiński family. Its baroque / classicist facade, one of the most monumental in Warsaw, is the work of a famous (in Poland) Dutch architect Tylman von Gameren (who received Polish nobility as Gamerski). There's a large park behind it (with some playground for children), and underground car park in front of it. In late 18th century, the palace was bought by the state to house archives and the likes, so it is also known as The Palace of the Republic. During ww2, Germans entered the building with flame-throwers and burned milions of acts, sometimes several centuries old. They burned quietly and sometimes their "shadow" remained, meaning the ashes still in the shape of the book, which would fall apart if you touched them.

A Baroque splendour
Oct 2018 • Couples
The Krasinski Palace is considered to be one of the most beautiful buildings in Warsaw. It was designed by Tylman van Gameren & was built between 1687 & 1700 in the Baroque style with ornaments in relief by the gifted sculptor & architect, Andreas Schluter. Sadly the palace sustained extensive damage during WWII but has since been restored. It sits amongst attractive gardens where it is pleasant to sit & take in the beautiful surroundings.

17th Century Splendor rebuilt
Jun 2018 • Solo
Late 17th century residence of Jan Krasinski (royal administrator). The architect was a Dutchman Tielman van Gameren (Tylman Gamerski); style is French baroque. Interesting is the huge triangular pediment relief depicting the victory of Polish clans over Roman rule. No bloody scenes and guns, but relieved noblemen in an arcadic setting.

The palace was destroyed by the Nazis in 1944 and later rebuilt. It now is part of the Polish National Library. The pleasant palace gardens are open to the public as well.

A place with an amazing history
Apr 2018 • Solo
In front of the building, is a multimedia kiosk where you can learn the history of this amazing place. In the middle is a real treasure for all loving books. The biggest impression did the urn with ashes on the largest book's treasures burnt by the Germans at the end of II World War. A park is also worth seeing

You should come to this place if you want to escape the noise of the streets.
There's a wonderful little lake where you can sit on of the plenty benches.
