The Palace on the Island is the most important building in the Royal Baths, known as the most charming park in Europe.
The Palace is one of the finest building in classical style, a pearl of Polish architecture and one of the symbols of Warsaw. It is built on an artificial island, that divides the lake into two parts and is connected to the surrounding park by two colonnaded bridges.
It used to be a private bathhouse for the royalty and it was owned by the last king of Poland, Stanislaw August Poniatowski, who made it into his private residence. The Palace was famous for its Thursday Dinners, which were meetings of artists, intellectuals, architects, politicians and statesmen held by the last King of Poland, Stanislaw August Poniatowski.
