Royal Lazienki Park

DSC 1060

Lazienki Krolewskie is the the most beautiful palace and garden complex in Warsaw.   The park was created using the formerly wildly growing forest. In 1764 Ujazdow became the property of Stanislaw Augustus Poniatowski – the last king of Poland. He has established his summer residence here and gave it its general appearance. A number of mainly Italian painters and architects were commissioned to extend the Royal Summer Residence. The park was laid out in classical style, complete with a palace on the central lake, an ancient Roman-style amphitheatre, an Orangerie and a whole beautifully planned gardens.  Over the years the park was enriched with a Summer Palace, Amphitheatre, Orangery, Myslewicki Palace, the Temple of Diana, the Egyptian Temple and many pavilions. It stretches within the area of nearby 80 hectares.
