Why doe recommend this museum?
The Palace on the Isle has a very long history and tradition. Moreover, it is a personal project of the last King of Poland Stanislaw August Poniatowski.
It is very controversial whether King Poniatowski was a successful king. However, his achievements and accomplishments in the fields of art, culture and architecture were undisputed. And this very palace is the best example of his outstanding sensitivity to the fine arts.
The palace was badly damaged, but the building fabric has been preserved. The reconstruction has been outstandingly successful. One could even think that the palace had remained untouched for centuries.
The palace has two floors. Downstairs are the reception rooms for the guests. On the upper floor are the private rooms of the king and his valet. You can visit all the rooms on your own. We recommend buying a museum brochure that describes and explains the individual elements, otherwise it is “just” another summer residence of a king.
On the ground floor there are 11 smaller and larger rooms. On the first floor there is a division into two parts. The northern part belonged to the valet, while the southern part belonged to the king.
Find out a little about the history of the Palace on the Isle and the whole park beforehand. Only then can you get the most out of a visit to the palace.
Our tips in the area
Free Chopin concerts | 100 m |
From May to the end of September, free Chopin concerts are held every Sunday at the monument to the piano virtuoso. The palace is located in the lower part of the park, while the Chopin monument is at the top.
– There is only one café in the park (mostly overcrowded) and a kind of kiosk. We therefore recommend taking water and something to drink with you.
– Dogs are not allowed in the park, even if leashed.
– Be sure to buy an information booklet at the checkout. These little booklets are really helpful.
The park and the palace are barrier-free, but the slope is relatively steep, which can be a bit of a hassle when it rains, as long as wheelchairs are involved. So be careful.
