Warsaw Off The Beaten Path: 155 reviews and 302 photos
This interesting building (Al. Na Skarpie 27, map here, marked 2) called Pniewski's Villa and covered by cut pieces of stones reminds me some beautiful large houses I once saw in Andorra and the Pyrenees (France, Spain). To be exact, its style is a bit different :-). Since 1966 the building belongs to the Museum of the Earth located on the opposite side of street. It houses temporary exhibitions showing mainly great photographs of our planet :-).
There is also a lecture hall where, among others, meetings and slides/pictures shows for fans of far travels take place. The schedule is on the museum webpage (in Polish) here (click on "zobacz wiecej" = see more). For example: Tibet, from Bombay to the roof of the world and Niger, tea on the Sahara. I'd love to see such staff next time! For those who can't speak Polish, the young travelers preparing those meetings can speak English, I guess. Why not to meet them in Warsaw?
The building itself (built 1779-81) belonged to prince Kazimierz Poniatowski and served as his Summer Palace, housed the Great Masonic Lodge of the East (fraternal organization) and then under Branickis ownershop - ornithological museum. In 1930' an architect Pniewski converted the little palace into his apartment and stodio and lived there until death in 1965.
