Go back to the time of Saxon kings at Palace on the Island, an 18th-century Baroque palace and a former royal residence that originally was erected as a bathing pavilion. The building, richly decorated with stuccos, statues, and paintings, is bordered by ponds, canals, and gardens of the city's royal baths park. Look for a painting of a silenus with bacchants in the Bacchus room. The Neoclassical rotunda decorated in yellow and white marble with figures of the Polish kings occupies the central portion of the palace. Go to the picture gallery on the other side of the rotunda, which features minor works by Rubens and Rembrandt. The palace also houses royal apartments, a king's cabinet, royal bed chambers, a cloakroom, and an officer's room.

  • Nice small palace with bad organization. There was some school trip in queue before us. They let pupils in in groups of few people. Nobody cares that there are other tourists and we all had to wait...

  • Lovely place to visit on a warm day. The surrounding parkland is peaceful and cooling - particularly if it is hot. You could spend a few hours wondering around here. So relaxing and not far by bus.....  more

  • Very beautiful place with amazing garden. It is very relaxing to walk on the way. I went there in the evening and it was a great experience for me to be there.
  • Very big park with many locations to visit. Nice pond inside. Beautiful birds around, squirels and neat areas to rest. Good to spend a day or even more
