I don’t know why I hadn’t described this park sooner. I am here every second day. It’s my favourite place for running.
It is simply beautiful. It shows you some of Warsaw’s history, when we were a kings’ city. The whole complex was finished in the late XVIII century as a summer residence for our last king. The style is classical, that’s why around the park you can find statues from the Greek mythology (the lanterns are held by fauns).
The gardens are charming and discovering hidden statues is lots of fun, and the views here are some of the most iconic views of Warsaw. But what really makes it special is the nature. Coming here every second day I can observe how it changes – specially now with all the green stuff coming out. I love red squirrels here (no matter what time of the year they approach people directly and wait to be given a “sweet” treat). Soon the small ducklings will join their parents, and you can observe how peacocks are preparing for mating season.
Here, like anywhere else, you can feel that spring has arrived.
