The Lazienki Palace, also known as ‘The palace on the water’ is a Neoclassical palace in Warsaw, Poland. The palace was built from 1683 to its completion date in 1689, its intended purpose was for a bathhouse for the owner of the nearby Ujazdow Castle. The castle has plenty of sculptures around its impressive facade and the interior of the palace is just as impressive with fantastically painted ceilings.
