There was a magnificent palace in the park, the same one used by the kings of Poland. The park was the palace garden in the past. The original garden was designed in the 17th century in a rich Baroque style. Today the park looks like a green forest, with expanse and charming views just a short walk away from the city center.
The park received the name "Lazienki" - "baths" in Polish, because of the palace on the water, a palace which is one of the most important and beautiful points.
The park has quite a few interesting spots and attractions. Notice, for example, the large statue of Chopin, with a bench next to it. In the park you will also see an open theater that even shows performances during the summer. There is also a Greek temple and an Egyptian temple, botanical gardens with greenhouses and a variety of exotic plant species and the statue of Jan Sobieski, the romantic king.
In the park is also the Chopin Monument, whose appearance changes, depending on the direction from which it is viewed.
The atmosphere in the park is pleasant, with a variety of colorful flowers and green trees, along paths and lawns filled with toddlers running all over the place. Do not be surprised if you suddenly encounter a group dancing a traditional Polish dance, an open concert of a symphony orchestra or a show of knights on horseback.
By the way, there are about 400 sweet squirrels, along with peacocks and birds.
