Fodor's Review

The 180 acres of this park, commissioned during the late 18th century by King Słanisław August Poniatowski, run along the Vistula escarpment, parallel to the Royal Route. Look for the peacocks that wander through the park and the delicate red squirrels that in Poland answer to the name "Basia," a diminutive of Barbara. Of course, the best way to entice a squirrel to come near is to have some nuts in your hand. One of the most beloved sights in Łazienki Park is the Pomnik

Fryderyka Chopina (Chopin Memorial), a sculpture under a streaming willow tree that shows the composer in a typical romantic pose. In summer, outdoor concerts of Chopin's piano music are held here every Sunday afternoon.

Muzeum Łowiectwa i Jeżdziectwa. In the old coach houses on the east side of the park you'll find the Muzeum Łowiectwa i Jeździectwa, which contains a collection of stuffed birds and animals native to Poland. Park Łazienkowski. 022/522–66–30. www.muzeum.warszawa.pl. zł 8, Thursday free. Wed.–Sun., 10–3.
