Serving as the central building of the Polish Commonwealth for many centuries, this castle was rebuilt after it was dynamited by German troops after the Warsaw uprising, and has been rebuilt to recreate the original castle's 17th-century architecture and interiors.

We thoroughly enjoyed wandering around the palace. You don't need a guide, just wander and enjoy the beauty of the palace. There is a Rembrandt or two there too!
