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.

The castle is advertised as free on a Sunday and open until 4pm. We arrived early afternoon to be told it shut at 3pm so we didn’t have much time to look around

I was lucky to go on a Sunday and admittance is free. Having said that Iwould have been more than willing to pay for visiting this stunning palace from the inside. I do not think the outside although impressive matches the splendour inside. So many...More

Place destroyed in 100% in 1944 by German Nazis. Rose up from ashes after 1945.....It is beautiful place to spend afternoon and get amazed.... So much history, and rare historical landmarks rebuilded, to the smallest details, amazing painting, architecture structure. Must see while in there.

Just a few blocks from the main square, a very interesting visit to this castle, provided that most of it has been reconstructed, it brings you back to Poland's imperial times, look for the couple Rembrandts in the permanent collection!

The center point of any visit to Warsaw. Albeit, it requires some preparation and reading beforehand to have the experience the most enjoyable and informative.
