Originally built in the 1600's it is a massive castle that has been rebuilt and restored to somewhat of its former glory. During WWII it was almost completely destroyed between bombing and Hitler's orders to blow it up after robbing It of all it's artifacts. It is worth the visit today and to take in all of its history.

The Royal Castle of Warsaw is in the center of the Old Town and photogenic even from the outside. However, it is actually worth taking the time to visit the museum inside featuring furniture from the time it was used by royals. The original castle was destroyed like most of Warsaw, but has been rebuilt. There is free entrance on Sunday.

A real feat. Full of antique furniture and 18th-century, Canaletto-painted views of Warsaw. A gem surrounded by - yes, indeed - cherry tree garden.

The Royal Castle in Warsaw is unfortunately a rebuild, but it still looks beautiful to this day. Located in the Castle Square in Old Town Warsaw, it's worth a visit as it houses many artifacts of old eras in Polish history that you'll find interesting if you're a history buff, or even just a Game of Thrones enthusiast!
