Presidential Palace

per person

presidential-palace-warsawThe Presidential Palace is located on Warsaw’s Royal Route, surrounded by magnificent hotels and imposing churches. It is the most famous and most photographed building on Krakowskie Przedmiescie Street, unfortunately, but also understandably, not open to the public.

Short description

T he President of Poland resides in this palace. In addition, the building is closely related to the events of the 1989 Round Table, which led to the first partially democratic elections in the Eastern Bloc in June 1989.

170 years earlier, the seven-year-old Frédéric Chopin played his first public concert here.

As you can imagine, the palace is not open to the public and can only be visited on open day. The building survived the Second World War almost intact. In front of the palace is the monument to Jozef Poniatowski, nephew of the last King of Poland Stanislaw August Poniatowski (abdicated 1795). The monument is an imitation. The original was destroyed and melted down during the Second World War.

Museum of Caricature and Cartoon Art (290m)

Just a few minutes away is the Museum of Caricature, one of the rarest museums in Poland and Europe. On occasion, you can admire the romantic Kozia Street, which invites you to take a solitary stroll if Krakowskie Przedmiescie Street is crowded.

The palace is – as the name suggests – the residence of the President of Poland. You can only visit the palace on open day.

Looking at the palace, you are on the Royal Route, for which we have prepared a separate overview.
