Łazienki Park Walk (Self Guided), Warsaw

Soothe the soul with a relaxing sojourn in Łazienki Park, which can certainly stake a claim for being one of the most beautiful and enchanting city parks in Europe. This vast expanse of unspoiled nature encompasses lush lawns, hedges, thick shrubs, tree-lined winding paths and small summer palaces from times gone by.

Many in the city come here on the weekend for a traditional family stroll. The principal attraction is the lake, which is crossed by a footbridge at its narrow neck and also features the Palace on the Water. This royal residence was completed in 1683 and was originally a bathhouse. Appreciate the beauty of the stately façades and then venture inside to see the king's private and state rooms, ballroom, bathrooms and bedchambers. Other places of interest within the palace include a chapel, a portrait gallery and a rotunda gallery of Polish kings.

While enjoying your exquisite moments of relaxation in the park, go over to the Chopin Garden. This is one of the most popular spots and features a bronze statue of the composer seated under a willow tree. During the summer months, Chopin concerts are held in the park every weekend, a custom that has been going on for approximately 50 years.
