The Wilanow Palace was used as a summer residence in the 17C by King Jan III Sobieski. A splendid villa in the Baroque style, many of its rooms display period furniture and decorations (see in particular the Crimson Room, Etruscan Study, the royal apartments, as well as the gallery of Polish portraits). Set in French-style gardens (two-level terrace with sculptures emblematic of Love) and English-style parkland, Wilanow is a true architectural jewel.
