We had to wait 2 hours to get into the exhibit. Plan ahead for your tour, especially if you're in town for a short time. Just a short walk to the gallery which was included in the price of the ticket.

The painting is the biggest handcrafted painting in the world and it has is own heroic story about escaping the nazi hunger for art. Well, if your are not a inconditional fan... More

I wasn't sure what to expect from this - the price was steep compared to general pricing throughout Poland - was it value for money? Considering upkeep etc yes probably, A nice piece of Polish unashamed jingoism and why not.

It was amazing to see this canvas 15 x 120 meters size. It is not only the size but the fact that you feel part of it. It has so many details of the battle. they have audio translated in many languages. It is definitely worth a visit. Plan on time. They have certain number of people to go in.... More

Very unique and interesting attraction, not too expensive and well worth a look in if you have time. Would make a very good wet weather sight. Amazing details, never seen anything quite like it.

Amazing huge painting that brings this battle (which has meaning to Polish Independence) to life. You will never see anything like this anywhere else and just for that it is a good reason to visit.

This excellent depiction of the famous battle is both interesting and informative. A moving record of heroic bravery, beautifully presented the panorama gives you a feeling of being in the middle of the battle, yet distant.
