The Royal Castle

One of the must-see places is Warsaw’s pride – the Royal Castle – which used to be home to Polish monarchs. Thanks to the entire nation, the Royal Castle was reconstructed after complete destruction during WWII. The castle is located at the opening of Warsaw’s beautiful old town. A tour of the Royal Castle will take you through the monarch’s chambers, decorated with paintings portraying famous moments from Polish history. Make sure to take part in seeing where all of the Polish monarchies used to live! Some believe that the castle is haunted by “the white lady,” but actually, the most haunting thing you will see on your tour is the gold-decorated walls in the Great Assembly Hall.

St. John

The last Polish king was crowned and later buried in the cathedral’s crypt. Many various Mazovian knights and people like Henryk Sienkiewicz or Gabriel Narutowicz were also laid to rest there. The Cathedral holds a secret passage leading to the Royal Castle and has many more historical monuments, which you will surely enjoy.



When visiting Warsaw and touring in the old town, you will surely have the chance to see the defensive tower – the redbrick Barbican. It was partly destroyed in the 19th century but reconstructed after the ending of World War II. Once it served only defensive purposes, but right now it is an attractive spot for tourists and is wildly popular among art sellers.
