Owner history of WILANOW, WARSZAWA
To each and one visiting WILANOW. Before the WW II this was a private owned Palace. The Polish State has kept it for its representation purposes after the war. The owner - a old Lady - and her family is fighting to get it back from the Polish State. She is, or was living in Stockholm Sweden, and this fight has been described in an article in Dagens Nyheter, the largest daily newspaper in Sweden.
So when visiting kindly keep in mind that it is a privet home you are visiting, that has not been returned to the lawful owners by a Democratic State.
