Short description

Der Palast war ursprünglich ein im 17. Jahrhundert erbautes Badehaus. Im 18. Jahrhundert wurde es vom letzten König von Polen Stanislaw August Poniatowski vollständig umgebaut und in die heutige Form gebracht. Nach der 3. Polnischen Teilung ging es 1813 ins Eigentum der Zaren über. In den folgenden hundert Jahren wurden nahezu alle Wertgegenstände aus dem Palast nach St. Petersburg gebracht.

Während des 2. Weltkrieges wurde der Palast stark beschädigt und schließlich im Dezember 1944 in Brand gesteckt. Die Rekonstruktion wurde 1965 abgeschlossen. Es hat heute die Funktion eines Museums und ist selbst Teil des Museums Lazienki Krolewskie, also des Lazienki-Parks.

Our tips in the area

Royal Lazienki Park

The palace stands in the middle of the most beautiful park in the city. By definition, the park is a museum, hence the strict rules of etiquette and prohibitions (no dogs, no bicycles). Among centuries-old trees, shrubs and flowers are other smaller and larger buildings and a Chinese pavilion. The best time to visit is during the free weekly Chopin concerts at the Chopin Monument.

Centre for Contemporary Art (950m)

Less than a kilometre from here is the imposing Ujazdowski Castle, which houses the Centre for Contemporary Art. For art lovers, this is an address to remember.

South Park and Belvedere Restaurant (500-950m)

If you walk south along the main avenue of the park, you reach the southern and thus much quieter part of the park. Tourists rarely get lost in this section. So if you really want to go for a walk, I recommend taking this route.

In the southern park there is also the very good and distinguished (also more expensive) Belvedere restaurant.

Near the southern exit, which is exactly 1 kilometre from the palace on the island, you can get back on the tourist line 180 and go to the centre (turn right after the exit, right again at the crossroads; the bus stop is called “Spacerowa” (GoogleMap).


The park and the palace are barrier-free.

Dogs in the park

Dogs are not allowed, not even on a leash.
