Recommended by Michelin, you'll find Amber Room in the picturesque setting of the Sobanski Palace just opposite the Ujazdowski Park. Amber Room specializes in Polish cuisine with a modern twist.
Set against swish country manor background decor of chintz, flowers and candles, this is hearty traditional fare done to the best possible standard. Enjoy duck with apples and cranberry sauce while aproned staff cater to your whim and fancy in what is set to be one of the premier dining experiences on the Royal route.
The most interesting part of the route is between the Castle Square and Rondo de Gaulle. This route includes the two streets Krakowskie Przedmieście and Nowy Świat, which merge at Staszic Palace.
Warsaw Old Town
Warsaw’s Old Town dated back to the 13th century. Situated in the middle of the Old Town; it was largely destroyed during the Second World War and was later reconstructed. The reconstruction was so precise that one can hardly tell if the the building survived the war or if it was rebuilt. This craftsmanship was recognised by the UNESCO who in 1980 added the Warsaw Old Town to its list of World Heritage Sites.
Royal Lazienki Park
Łazienki Park laid out in the 17th century is home to many wonderful architectural monuments in its landscaped gardens. Look out for the Palace on the Water by Jan Christian Kamsetzer and Domenico Merlini, built for Poland’s last monarch King Stanisław August Poniatowski as his summer residence.
