Wilanow Palace (Museum of King Jan III) Tours
One of the only landmarks in Warsaw to remain untouched by the World Wars, the stunning Wilanow Palace is one of the most beautiful buildings in Poland. Stroll around the incredible gardens, take in the Gallery of Polish Portraiture, or just take in the ornateness and splendor of both the interior and exterior design of the Palace.
Built for King John III Sobieski in the late 17th century, the Wilanow Palace is considered to be one of the major masterpieces of Polish architecture, and is often referred to as the "Polish Versailles". Be sure to make time for the gardens, which can be just as engrossing as the palace itself.
The Wilanow District of Warsaw, in which the palace is located, sits to the left of the Vistula River, about 10km (or 6 miles) from Old Town. If you're driving, you can enjoy the free municipal parking lot just 300m from the palace. If you're taking public transportation, buses 116, 117, 130, 139, 164, 180, 519, 522, 700, 710, 724, and 725 will take you there.
Be sure to consult the palace website when planning your trip, as the hours of opening vary depending on what you'd like to do. While the park is open year-round until dusk, the palace itself changes hours of operation depending on the season, as does the Orangery.
