Extraordinary accessories and fine ambient... a jump in the past behind the Nazi destroying! Honour to characters of the rebuilding... I didn't love a little esplications of the re-building phasis (engineering, general plan, workers' names, etc...). I will retun surely!

I took a tour during the free day on Sundays. Apparantly the path to walk through is shorter on these days, but I don't know if I would pay to go in. The place is very beautiful inside. It was super cool to see how ornate all the rooms were. There is so much gold in some of the rooms,... More

The Royal Palace is in the heart of the Old Town Square. The facade has been restored to a tapestry color of a rich dark pink. The entrance fee is 22 złt for an adult. There are concessions for students and pensioners. The staff are adamant that you remove all coats and jackets before proceeding to the royal castle tour.... More

Very near to the old town that has been rebuilt after the destruction of Warsaw in world war2. New year celebration is fun over there.

I have a fascination with castles and palaces. They are so extravagant. This one is no exception. However, the museum is a must see. We learned so much about the history of Poland and how WWII effected the city. The mear fact that this building was flattened to a pile of rubble and rebuilt to its former glory is stupendous....

On Google there is a photo of a heap of burnt bricks - entitled, "1945 the Polish Royal Castle. The now museum was opened to the public in 1984, and now we all can enjoy the very lucky experience of visiting a new Royal Palace. So as you wander around Palaces built hundreds of years ago, you can obtain a... More

I was impressed by the interior - stunning paintings depicting historical scenes and portraits of Polish kings, the Throne Room, the Knight's room. The Castle was destroyed during World War II like most of the city and was reconstructed in 1980 and listed as part of UNESCO's cultural heritage. Great starting point for a tour in the Old Town !

You cannot believe that this Castle was rebuilt after the 2nd world war, it looks like it has Benn there for hundreds of years. Tour of castle excellent and great value.
