Serving as the central building of the Polish Commonwealth for many centuries, this castle was rebuilt after it was dynamited by German troops after the Warsaw uprising, and has been rebuilt to recreate the original castle's 17th-century...more

This is an another must when you are in Warsaw. Beautifully renovated Royal Castle will take you to the times of the great union of Poland and Lithuania and to the first times of the first constitution this type in Europe. This is not typical...More
I really adore castles. Unfortunately I don't like this one. I don't know why, I just can't see historical spirit in him. This complex is big and seems old, it's true. But remember that it's not old - it has been rebuilt after the II...More

With your ticket you get an illustrated leaflet with map and short description of the most interesting rooms. Also, as you tour the rooms THERE ARE explanations on stands both on Polish and English. It's enough if you're not interested to tiny details.
You can buy an audio guide at start, but I personally didn't find it necessary, and it's more time consuming.
