Autumn in the Royal Łazienki

In autumn, the Royal Łazienki In Warsaw gets a little looser. Outside the holiday season, we will still meet many people on autumn walks who want to admire the garden falling into a winter sleep, giving a lot of warm colors of autumn.


Autumn in the Royal Łazienki Park in Warsaw is a little looser. Outside the holiday season, we will still meet many people on autumn walks who want to admire the garden falling into a winter sleep, giving a lot of warm colors of autumn. It is also the perfect time to explore, as the middle of the holiday season is just as beautiful, but the crowds here can be huge. In autumn, we have the park almost to ourselves, despite the fact that many attractions are open for free to visitors.

During our visit, we came across only one larger school group, which on the floor of the palace conducted classes on the history of this place. In addition, autumn in the royal bathrooms is blissful peace and quiet from the hustle and bustle of the city that is right next door.

It is probably also the most crowded place for wedding sessions in Warsaw, which can compete with the Old Town. During the holidays, I like to have fun counting all the sessions that take place there, because you can count a lot of them! In autumn it gets looser, and it seems to me that this is an even better time for a session when the sun does not warm so much, and golden and red leaves appear on the trees.

Free November in the Royal Łazienki Park in Warsaw

Not everyone knows that autumn in the Royal Łazienki is a great opportunity to visit some of the exhibitions that are besieged by tourists in the season (they require a fee) and in the autumn there are actions such as “Free November”, during which we can visit for free the Palace on the Isle and other attractions of the Royal Łazienki, such as:

  • The Royal Theatre and the Old Orangery
  • Myślewicki Palace
  • White House
  • Pavilions
  • Cadet School
  • Amphitheatre
  • Monuments and carvings

In 2019 this could be done from 3 to 30 November. It was enough to pick up a free ticket at the ticket offices, but when we were, we were simply allowed in.

I wonder how it will be in the coming years. We will certainly follow the next such actions when autumn comes in the Royal Łazienki, because once a year you can go there and see what grazing kings once lived on, and today the standard in Warsaw are some micro-studios smaller than them bathrooms, or offices which they sometimes had several dozen in different places.

Palace on the Isle in the Royal Łazienki

The Palace on the Isle is usually the most crowded place in the Royal Łazienki. It is here that the adventure of tourists and school trips usually begins,who delight in the view of the Amphitheater on the water around which small boats circle, and immediately after that they notice colorful peacocks, which they always try to take a photo.

It was here, immediately after visiting the Myślewicki Palace, that we appeared for a long-awaited tour of the royal estate. I have no doubt that the color gold was very fashionable at that time.

Autumn walk through the Royal Łazienki

After passing the huge Palace on the Isle and all its nooks and crannies, we went for a small walk in the park. We are not so fans of monuments and palaces to see all the attractions of the Łazienki in one fell swoop, even though the admission was free, we preferred to walk in the open air, visiting the Amphitheater, the Old Orangery, the Egyptian Temple, the Temple of the Sibyl and several monuments.

Temple of Sibilia

The Temple of the Sibyl is a mysterious place on a hill, right next to the Egyptian Temple and the Belvedere. It looks like a small tomb with a closed white door guarded by two cats.

How many bathrooms are there in the Royal Łazienki?

Probably many of you as a kid wondered during the tour whether there are bathrooms in the Royal Łazienki. Don’t worry, there are at least 12 of them.

And where did the name of the Royal Łazienki come from?

At the beginning it was only a “bathroom”, which was created by Stanisław Herakliusz Lubomirski, who was a wealthy aristocrat and a traveler who wanted to have his spa between one and the other expedition, so he built baths here.

Then Stanisław August Poniatowski, who moved on the hill to the Ujazdowski Castle , could not stand the prolonged renovation of the palace interiors and decided to buy back the former Lubomirski estate. Due to what his predecessor left there, King Stanisław August decided to add Royal to its name and use the plural.

And so it was.
