We didn't visit the Palace, only the gardens but it was very pleasant, great place to go to on a sunny afternoon. The outside of the Palace is beautiful and its architecture is a cross between Roman and Polish architecture. Definitely a pleasant walk

It was worth visiting the interiors of the Palace with a guide. The guide told us an interesting story of that place, paying attention to details.

Secon part of the visit were The Royal Gardens - very beautiful - Rose Garden, Baroque-style Garden, fountains, status... with lots of benches to rest surrounded by history.
It was also worth to walk along the Wilanowskie Lake in the northern park with Chinese Gazebo, and also southern park with sculpture pavilion.
If someone wants, it is possible to take a boat or canoe ride on the lake from the marina.

A great half-day spent in fine weather, with a coffee break - thanks to coffee bike shop.

This beautiful baroque palace is a must-visit for tourists in Warsaw. The museum is definitely interesting but the best part is taking a walk around the beautiful gardens around the palace and admire the unique architecture from the outside. I especially recommend visiting the palace in the season surrounding Christmas where there is a special light installation in the gardens. Beautiful forms, sculptures, and pathways lit up with colorful Christmas lights. Part of the installation is synchronized with speakers and looks as if dancing to the music. There is are also interesting mapping shows where images and videos showing different stories are projected onto the palace.

It's not called like this by accident. Yes, Wilanów is smaller and perhaps less gorgeous than the French palace, but it also has a cameral charm that more than makes up for it. The gardens aren't very extensive, but beautifully situated near a nature preserve and still large enough to warrant an hour-long walk, while the palace itself has some of the richest interiors you will see in Poland and boasts an interesting collection of European and oriental art. In one of the wings, you even have an opportunity to witness experts at work restoring paintings and other exhibits!

Tip: Thursdays are free admission days, and don't miss the free mobile app with different thematic guides (general, for kids, "women in the palace", "restoration process") - QR codes for the download available throughout the building. Plan 3-4 hours on site and enjoy.

A beautiful place, both the park and the palace. It has its charm. Palace erected in 1696 at the request of King Jan III Sobieski. To see the whole thing, you need to have a whole day. . The palace itself is beautiful, giving an idea of ​​the splendor of royal residences. The museum is surrounded by beautiful gardens. There are numerous ponds and branches of the Vistula in the park where you can go boating. t is worth visiting this place when visiting Warsaw.

We visited the Palace on our final afternoon in Warsaw and were running late due to very slow service at a nearby bar where we stopped for a quick(!) beer. Had not realised that last entry is at 3pm on a Thursday and so were in a bit of a mad panic to get the tickets, but were re-directed from the entry to a separate ticket office out near the front of the palace grounds, over 100m away. Despite being a few minutes late they still let us in.
If you have seen a few palaces, the interior is a bit underwhelming, fairly standard antiques and furniture, no really outstanding pieces or rooms or frescoes. The gardens are small but impressive (fully in flower during our visit in July). But I think the outside of the palace is the best part, particularly if you are lucky enough to have bright sunshine bring out the yellow (our day was cloudy but the sun did come out briefly to get a feel of how it looks).

I've wanted to visit Wilanów since a read a biography of King Jan II Sobieski. I was not disappointed. I'd been to Poland previously, but this was high on my list to do this time, because we were traveling independently. It was the first place we visited on the day we arrived in Warsaw. Although tired from our long flight from Chicago, I'm so glad we visited. It in an amazing place and I highly recommend it, bit inside and out. The inside is beautifully furnished with interesting exhibits, and the outside grounds and gardens are meticulously groomed. A must-see on a visit to Warsaw.
