Wajenki Park, a place of recreation and relaxation for the citizens of Warsaw, is a place like this, and three highlights are also introduced.

Here’s a brief overview of Wajenki Park and what it has to offer!

What is Wajenki Park?

Wajenki Park was created in the 18th century as a detached palace for the last king of Poland.

It gradually expanded between the 18th and 20th centuries and now covers an area of 78 hectares.
The area is approximately 1.5 times larger than Tokyo Disneyland.

The park also includes a fee-based museum.

Personally, I like
I recommend spending your time in a “European style,” doing nothing but walking among the greenery and relaxing on a bench.

Wajenki Park features three gardens

Wajenki Park consists mainly of gardens from three different periods.
If you have time, you should walk around everything.

18th Century Royal Gardens

It is the most European-like area.
You can see a water palace and an outdoor theater.

Around the Water Palace, visitors often encounter peacocks, the idols of Wajenki Park.

Idols stroll through the park with their own faces.

Romantic garden of the 19th century

There are no very famous buildings, so the area is a bit plain compared to others.
However, it is also a slow and quiet area for that reason.

Very beautiful during the fall foliage season.

Squirrels are also abundant in this area.
It may be especially easy to encounter them in the morning ^^.

Walnuts are their favorite. Many squirrels are friendly.

20th Century Modern Garden

It is famous for its statue of Chopin.
In summer, a Chopin concert is held in front of the Chopin statue.

What is a Chopin Concert?

Free outdoor piano concerts held every Sunday from mid-May to September.
(2018: 5/13 – 9/30). (In 2018, the concerts were held from 5/13 to 9/30.)

You can hear a performance in front of the Chopin statue every Sunday from 12:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.
Entry and exit are free.

You can listen to it sitting on a bench or lying on the grass.

A very luxurious concert where you can listen to live classical music in the midst of nature.
If you come to Warsaw at this time of year, this is a must-see event.

Even if you can’t go on a Sunday, I recommend Wajenki Park in the summer because the greenery is really beautiful.

Autumn is also a good time to visit, when the leaves turn beautifully red, known as the “golden autumn.

Spring seems to have a totally different climate from year to year, so a warmer year would be good.
I don’t like to go there in winter because the air is dirty and cold ^^;

Things to know before visiting Wajenki Park

Here are a few things you should know before visiting Wajenki Park.

Few toilets

Despite having an area one and a half times the size of Disneyland.
There are few restrooms.

(Maybe two? There should be a separate one in the facility for a fee.)
So, spend your time planning.

The restrooms here are rather clean.
Free of charge.

The other is located at the far end of the park.
Not as good as the restroom above, but it’s there.
Also free of charge.

There are a few other simple toilets in the park that look like those found at construction sites marked “TOITOI,” but I do not recommend them except in an emergency….

Leisure sheets are useful

If you go in summer, you may enjoy it more if you have a leisure sheet.
You can lie down and relax on the lawn while listening to a Chopin concert.

Polish people don’t mind at all and sleep directly, though ^^;

summary

Gondola and Water Palace. (There is a fee for the gondola.)

How was it?

Spending a relaxing weekend in Wajenki Park is a refreshing experience.

A true Warsaw power spot.

Poland.

Squirrels are common in Wajenki Park.
If you bring them walnuts, their favorite food, they may eat them out of your hand.

In Poland, squirrels are called “basher basher, basher basher.

Is it like calling a fox “Roolooloo” in “From the North” ^^;
