historia-polski:

"The Royal Baths (Łazienki Królewskie), a residence of king Stanislaw August Poniatowski, is one of the most beautiful 18th-century park-and-palace complexes in Europe. Warsaw’s famous landmark, it attracts the visitors with its classic architecture and the soothing green of the park.

The name of the residence comes the Lubomirski family’s summer baths which existed on the area in the late 17th century.

In 1764, the property was purchased by Stanislaw August, who hired the best architects at that time, such as Domenico Merlin, and filled the forest with marvellous classicist buildings. The Palace on the Water (Pałac na Wodzie) was the venue of thriving cultural and artistic life of the Polish Enlightenment. ‘King Stas’, himself a great patron of the arts, invited the most distinguished artist to his famous ‘Thursday dinners’.

Located in the downtown area of the Polish capital, the Royal Baths are a popular tourist destination and a beloved walking area for the Warsovians. The visitors are enchanted by the rich interior ornaments of the palace, its reflection on the surface of the pond, and the amphitheatre on the water. They cannot miss a walk in the park, which remains uniquely beautiful throughout all seasons of the year.

Especially in summertime, a lot of attractions may be expected, such as concerts amidst a sea of flowers in front of Fryderyk (Frédéric) Chopin’s monument, a meeting with stately peacocks, a gondola trip across the pond, or an opportunity to feed squirrels.

The park’s Old Orangery (Stara Pomaranczarnia), full of exotic trees and statues, hosts the country’s largest Polish Sculpture Gallery.” (source)
