Lazienki Park and Chopin's Monument Tips (121)

Chopin and The Park

Łazienki Royal Park (in Polish, Lazienki Park Królewskie) is the largest public park in Warsaw. It spans an area of about 80 hectares. It features a palace complex and has a lake and a botanical garden. It is located on the southern edge of the district of Śródmieście, on Ujazdów Avenue (Aleje Ujazdowskie), and is part of the so-called "Royal Route" (Trakt Królewski) of the Polish capital.
It is famous for housing the monument to composer Frederic Chopin and some beautiful mansions and interesting pavilions: the Palace on the Island, the Belvedere Palace, the Amphitheatre, the White House, the Temple of Diana, among others. Most of these buildings have been transformed into museums in recent decades.*

An Oasis in the Huge City -A Must Visit.

A stroll through the Lazienki Royal Gardens is extremely pleasant and interesting.

The entire site served as the residence of Stanislaw August Poniatowski, Polands’s last monarch.

Upon entering, the first thing you come across is the Fryderyk Chopin art-deco monument. It is huge and impressive.

The Park covers an area of 76-hectares and in reality it is formed by 3 different Gardens developed in various years and styles.
The Royal (18th) the Romantic (19th) and the Modernist the 20th century.

The Palace on the Island functions as a museum, it is an imposing building and luckily it was saved with little damage from the Nazi who attempted to destroy it.

There is a free concert every Sunday.

Lazienki Park - The Floating Palace - Lazienki Pal

The Łazienki Park is the biiggest park in Warsaw . The park is located in the district Śródmieście on the Aleje Ujazdowskie , the southern part of the Warsaw Royal Route , which leads to the Royal Castle. Without question it is one of the most beautiful parks I have seen. We have one of the photos of the Floating Palace framed in our living room at home. Historically the garden was created by the 17th century Tylman van Gameren. Compared to the old town area, the buildings in the park were saved from most of the bombings and destruction that the rest of the city suffered. The castle itself, while appearing to float on the water is actually located on an artificial island on the Łazienki lake, which is connected by two arcaded bridges to the mainland.

Allow yourself time to walk through the gardens and see the many buildings and monuments. And don't forget to take photos of the many peacocks roaming through the park.

A walk in the park!

I arrived at my hotel, then went for a walk in the cold fresh air. The park is almost next door to the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

I was surprised to see two peacocks trying to keep warm, near the Belvedere Restaurant.

The other thing that was unusual about the park, was the number of crows flocking around the park and trees - some thousands of them it looked like.

Today is the favorite sculpture of favorite artist in Poland.

Paseo por el parque-Lazienki- Park stroll

If you have time and good weather do not forget to take a walk in the park and if you can try to hear a concert

The park was built in the seventeenth century and takes its name from the bath house located in the park, called the Palace on the Water as it was built on the lake

A part of the palace is worth a special visit but you must walk through the gardens, see their greenhouse , the Belvedere, the White House

Get lost in these paths watching the statues of their great men and finish in the pond where it is payd homage to Chopin (Atention! try to hear a concert here)

Si tienes tiempo y hace buen tiempo no dejes de darte un paseo por el parque y si es posible escucha un concierto

El parque se construyó en el siglo XVII y toma el nombre por la casa de baños que se encuentra en el parque, el llamado Palacio sobre el Agua   ya que se construyó sobre el lago

A parte del palacio que merece una visita especial hay que pasear por los jardines, ver su invernadero , el Belvedere , la Casa Blanca

Perderse por sus paseos viendo las estatuas de sus grandes hombres para acabar en el estanque donde es homenajea a Chopin (Ojo! intenta oír aquí un concierto )
