On the road again 🎶

...Warsaw, Poland

Today is a city tour around Warsaw. We are heading to Wilinaw Palace built in the late 17th century as a summer residence for King Jan Sobieski III. This Baroque palace survived both World Wars and serves as a reminder of the Polish culture as it was before the misfortunes of the 18th century.

Here is a photo essay of the house and gardens:


It begins to rain and we head for the Science and Culture Museum, a communist relic, near our hotel which was originally commissioned by Stalin as a gift from the Soviet people. It takes its inspiration from the Empire State Building but was specifically designed to include influences from all of Polands architectural styles.
