Royal Castle (Polish: Zamek Krolewski) served throughout the centuries as an official residence of Polish monarchs and later as the seat of the parliament. The Castle was destroyed during the World War II by the Nazis and restored thanks to the efforts of the entire nation. During the tour, visitors can walk through the Kings’ apartments and chambers, heavily adorned with paintings of famous Polish moments; through the Throne and Canaletto Halls (featuring 22 original Canaletto paintings); and the Senators Hall, in which the Constitution of May 3, 1791 was passed. Visitors can also visit a chapel with an urn containing the heart of Polish hero and freedom fighter Tadeusz Kosciuszko. The apartments of Prince Józef Poniatowski are also open to the public, although a separate ticket is needed.
On Sundays, the admission to the Royal Castle is free but the Castle Tour is shortened.
Children up to 16 y.o. pay only 1 PLN for the tour.
