Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw: 4 reviews and 4 photos
A big, recently reconstructed early baroque castle, in an interesting area of Warsaw´s parks and city monuments.
In 1624 The King of Poland Sigmund III Vasa, built the castle as it looks today, with the intention of using it as his summer residence. The Ujazdowski castle was burnt by the Swedish army in 1655. The powerful Lubomirski family, which took over the castle afterwards, hired the architect Tylman van Gammeren to rebuild it. He gave the castle the baroque style it has today. During the World War I, the Ujazdowski castle together with surrounding it buildings served as a military hospital. German army burnt the castle in 1944, during the WWII. The outside walls, which were still standing after the war, were demolished in 1953, to give place for never built Polish People’s Army Culture Centre. The Ujazdowski Castle has been completely reconstructed and rebuilt in 1988.
