As a palace it is known from middle of 17th century, later mainly rebuilt in classicism style at the beginning of 19th century. Nowadays it is working place of president of Poland. Some time ago it was used as residence of noble families, also as seat of government.

Presidential palace is also called Radziwili (Radvilos) palace, as owners before was noblemen Radziwili from Lithuania.

When I was standing near stone lions of the palace I already knew that here Warsaw pact was signed in 1955, putting half of Europe under ?protection? of Soviet Union.
