This is a terrific tour, given that the whole castle was demolished by the Germans in 1944. It has been rebuilt and furnished as faithfully as possible, and is a must-see for Warsaw visitors. I thought it was superb.

You walk and you can miss that red building in front of you: the Royal Castle (Zamek Kroleski) – also rebuilt 1971-84 after it got destroyed and it is not only Poland’s symbol of independence but it was once the residence of Poland’s monarch

I have been waiting all of my life to visit and was not disappointed. The polish people know how to reconstruct a palace. Access was easy to get around
