This is a great place to discover the history of both Warsaw and Poland in general. My recommendation is to hire a private guide who can accompany you through the castle. You will learn much more than if you walked through on your own. Unlike other castles and palaces, there are not really any guided tours for the castle. You... More

Best thing in the Old Town by far. Not the original building but still a lot of history there and you can see some of the oldest foundations in the arcades, entry for which come free with the castle route ticket. There are several tickets that give access to various exhibitions within the grounds and I went for the castle... More

Royal Castle in fact is not as ancient, as it should be. Nazis destroyed it completely, onlu 25 years after WWII it was reconstructed. |It houses a nice Concert hall, often shows painting gallery and is a official place for some international events. Last year it was a place of great wine tasting /down ,near the river/ organized by Bordeaux... More

Very nice castle and even though it is only recently restaured (and still under reconstruction) you do not notice this. Impressive exhibitions.

The outside is already splendid. But the inside is even better. Very good refurbished and looks impressive. This castle was totally gone during WWII. Super job done.

It's amazing considering it had to be fully rebuild after the war, the whole castle is seriously impressive. If you're an art lover this is a must see. The way the tickets work are really good. You can buy separate or combo tickets, depending if you are more interested in the art or just the castle.

This is one of the most impressive castles I have visited in Europe. It has been fully rebuilt and it is beautiful. Loved every minute of it.

Grand on the outside, magnificent on the inside. Was free for some reason when I visited but I don't think that's always the case. Whole thing was rebuilt after WWII but you still get a taste of what it was like.

A must-see for history and art lovers, your eyes cant stay still as to where to look. Full of elegant and extravagant interiors, an insight into the lives of past Polish royalty. Visited in November which gave free access so was well worth it. Fantastic facilities. Busy with schoolchildren but can easily access all the rooms. The outside is unique... More

If you want to see how they lived Polish kings in ancient times, go for a castle. Rebuilt long after the war is now the only souvenir former glory. But I can still admire interiors, original furniture, paintings on the walls. You can also find here an interesting exhibition.
