Poland // Warsaw //

Royal Castle

On the east side of Castle Square is the thirteenth-century Royal Castle, now home to the Castle Museum (w www.zamek-krolewski.pl). Though the structure is a replica, many of its furnishings are originals. After passing the lavish Royal Apartments of King Stanisław August, you visit the Lanckoranski Gallery, which contains a fascinating range of aristocratic portraits including two paintings – Girl in a Picture Frame and Scholar at His Desk – by Rembrandt.
