Some people say that Wilanow is probably the most beautiful castle of Warsaw. The impressive building was the summer residence for the Polish kings, and later the Polish aristocracy.
Wilanow Castle was built at the end of the 17th century according to the plans of an Italian architect. The name of the castle has Italian origin as well. It comes from “Villa Nova” and means something like “new city”.
