The Royal Castle is where Polish kings would live, and the Parliament would sit. It is now the UNESCO-featured ancient centerpiece of Warsaw, designed by Renaissance Italian architects and leveled to the ground by Nazis in World War II. In the 1970s, the Poles began reconstructing it stone by stone and used no modern tools or materials when possible.
These precise landscapes and cityscapes served as references to restore the city after World War II.
These royal portraits were added to the interior in the 18th century and enhance the Baroque aesthetics of the space.
The first written Constitution in Europe and the second in the world was passed in the Royal Castle’s Senatorial Hall in 1791.
