The stately summer retreat of Poland's last king, Stanislaw August Poniatowski, the Lazienki Palace is an impressive structure steeped in Polish history. It's best appreciated aesthetically in the warmth of late spring and summer, when the surrounding parks and small lake contribute palpably to the palace's magnificence. Once inside, visitors are treated to a collection of notable art works including an array of handmade sculptures and paintings by artists like Rembrandt and others. The fact that much of it (the art as well as the building) survived a planned destruction at the hands of the Nazis should warrant your attention anyway, so why not take an afternoon and come appreciate some awe inspiring Polish aesthetics.
