In a city where even the “Old Town” dates back only about 30 years, it’s no surprise that the fairly unremarkable house and grounds at Wilanow should be singled out by Warsaw tourism bods as for special praise. It is a pleasant area for a stroll, both inside and out, but take a bus to get there. It’s not really worth an overpriced taxi ride to see it.
Getting there: Lots of buses go from Nowy Swiat or the Central Station.
The Saxon gardens were designed and laid out in the early 18th Century and were, originally, the private gardens for the royal residence of Morsztyn Palace. In 1727 they became a public park and in the middle of the 19th Century were re-designed.
At the Eastern end of the park is Pilsudaki Square and the Tomb of the Unknown Solider. Inside the park are a Fountain and Watertower – designed by the architect Henryk Marconi – some pieces of 18th Century statuary and an ornamental lake.
To the west of Krakowskie Przedmiescie and the east of Marszalkowska.
