We walked by the palace after visiting my friends university. There's not much to see, but it was a very nice building. The guards are alway impressive.

Tucked in among mature trees, the presidential residence is very picturesque. See from the outside only. We saw as part of the royal tour. Great photo op.

Place known recently more for the protesters, not as the key political locations in Warsaw. It's not possible to go inside therefore you have the chance to view it from the far. It's nicely lit during the night, so do stop for a minute when walking the royal mile.

The Presidential Palace is one of the many sights you pass while walking along Krakowskie Przedmiescie (The Royal Route). Built in 1643 it had a make over in the 19th C. The Warsaw pact was signed here in 1955 and in the 90's it was the home of Lech Wałęsa. The statue out the front is of Prince Józef Poniatowski.... More

not really much to see but the outside of it, it was being guarded by 2 navy which added an air of importance and it is on the way to the old town so you will not miss it.

This is a very nice building. Unfortunately, it is not open for tourists. Many demonstrations and protests were outside here when I visited. So therefore many security measures were in place. Felt safe but lots happening.

- passing by on the way back from Old town, these soldiers caught my eyes. They looked most striking in full uniforms, standing smartly at attention by the monument in the stifling summer heat! One of them, was even slightly smiling. Just on account of that they deserve my salute!

I don't think it is among the top attractions of the city but I think that due to its location and its architecture can be noteworthy. In any case, you can see it walking toward the Old Town and Stare Miesto.

This is a nice Presidential palace (called Namiestnikowski palace), which dates back to the mid 17th century. It's been through numerous renovations and since the early 1990's it is the home of the Polish president.

The Presidential Palace is located on the main road to get to the Old Town; hence, you will walk by it sooner or later while visiting Warsaw. I don't think you can go inside but it was cool to take pictures and watch the guards.
