WE ARE OPEN! 21st of May we reopen our Museum! We work as before, maintaining the safety rules. Our guest are requested to disinfect their hands at the entrance and to wear masks. Pinball Station is the first Interactive Pinball Museum in Warsaw. Established in June 2016, thanks to the great passion and commitment of two hobbyists and collectors. We started with 30 flippers. Today, our collection has over 100 pinball and arcade games, of which 70 have been restored and are available to visitors at Pinball Station. If you want to come back to the 80s and 90s, play on machines nowhere inaccessible like Bord-Golf from 1933 or simply – you want to feel like a kid again, come to our Museum.
On a grey, wet afternoon in Warsaw when most of the listed museums are closed there are few better options than this place. My wife and I, enjoyed a couple of hours here having a drink and reminiscing about our teenage years, stimulated by arcade games from the 70s-90s . It cost £8 each for “unlimited play” and the drinks were a fair price. It’s a fun place

The Royal Castle in Warsaw (Polish: Zamek Królewski w Warszawie) is a castle residency that formerly served throughout the centuries as the official residence of the Polish monarchs. Initially the complex served as the residence of the Dukes of Masovia, and since the sixteenth century, the seat of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth: the King and Parliament. In its long history the Royal Castle was repeatedly plundered and devastated by the invading Swedish, Brandenburgian, Prussian and Tsarist armies. Burned and looted by the Nazi Germans following the Invasion of Poland in 1939 and almost completely destroyed in 1944 after the failed Warsaw Uprising, the Castle was completely rebuilt and reconstructed. Reconstruction of the castle carried out in 1971–1984 was led by the Civic Committee, responsible for the reconstruction of Warsaw. In 1980, the Royal Castle, together with the Old Town was registered as a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site.
An excellent effort to rebuild and return Warsaw and it's royal history to its former glory. Museum is worth a visit, although recommend not bringing kids under 12 years old. An audio guide is very helpful to have, otherwise it's difficult to decipher alot of the meaning and history of what you're seeing. Unfortunately, many of the royal treasures were looted and lost during World War II, but they've done a fantastic job reenacting every room. It's right in the center of Castle Square and when you're done there are plenty of places to get a meal or sit in the shade and relax.

I was very impressed with this small museum and especially its informative little screens that provide a lot of information in multiple languages, much of it very detailed and not easy to find outside the museum. I really appreciated the one where you can see different victims and their personal stories. The pictures and explanations of graffiti written by the prisoners on the cell walls were very interesting. The museum is small, but not very expensive and does a good job of making the most of its space. The lights available to help you read the signs in this dark basement were also very much appreciated. It is kind of hard to find with no signs until you reach the museum door itself, so look for the large, grand entrance pictured here on TripAdvisor and then turn left just inside those gates.

The church of the Holy Cross dates back to the 17th century but has been severely damaged more than once, most recently by the German invaders during WWII. It has been used for many important ceremonies including the funeral of the political thinker Stanislaw Staszic (1755-1826), & Fryderyk Chopin's heart is interred in one of the main pillars. The restored interior is light & features lots of fresh gilding, magnificent altars & a very grand organ.

This church is located adjacent to Castle Square. This amazing church can be overlooked because Castle Square is stealing all the attention. Also, this church looks very different from the outside than the other churches on the Royal Route. It has a Neoclassical facade. The interior has a Baroque style with several chapels. The surprisingly rich interior is filled with frescoes. Not only the interior is stunning but there is also a viewing terrace that has panoramic views of Warsaw Old Town.

Well preserved French type of country palace surrounded with beautiful French garden and English type park at the pond. Furniture and paintings make walk in the palace truly of époque and gives real feeling of it. Best time to visit Wilanów Jan the 3rd Sobieski summer residence is late spring and summer when it blooms and smells with multiple flowers covered with carpet of colors and shades. Visitors may have a rest at cafes and restaurants located next to this place.
