P139 - Poland - Lazienki royal palace

Lazienki royal palace, Warsaw, Poland

The Łazienki Palace ; also called the Palace on the Water (Polish: Pałac na Wodzie) and the Palace on the Isle (Polish: Pałac na Wyspie), is a Neoclassical palace in Warsaw's Royal Baths Park.

Originally a bathhouse for powerful aristocrat Stanisław Herakliusz Lubomirski, owner of adjacent Ujazdów Castle, the Baths Palace was built by architect Tylman van Gameren on an islet in the middle of a lake. In 1764–95 it was completely remodeled by Domenico Merlini to fulfil King Stanisław August Poniatowski's need for a private residence where he could relax. Stanisław August was a great patron of the arts, and this is reflected in the palace's sumptuous interiors. A good deal of the King's original collection has survived. During World War II, Wehrmacht sappers bored tens of thousands of holes in the Palace in the stripped walls that they intended to fill with dynamite, but they only succeeded in setting the Palace alight and causing limited damage to the first floor. After World War II, until the 1960s, the palace served as a barracks.

The palace is built on an artificial island that divides the lake into two parts, a smaller northern lake and a bigger southern lake; it is connected by two Ionic colonnaded bridges to the rest of the park. The façades are unified by an entablature carried by a giant Corinthian order of pilasters that links its two floors and is crowned by a balustrade that bears statues of mythological figures. The north façade is relieved by a central pedimented portico. On the south front a deep central recess lies behind a screen of the Corinthian order carried across its front.

薩斯基王宮被譽為波蘭(甚至歐洲)十八世紀中最精巧的宮殿,由波蘭最後一位國王波尼托夫斯基 (King Stanislaw August Poniatowski)興建。他於1766年購買了烏維雅士都堡 (Ujazdow Castle),城堡旁為一塊打獵用地,內有一個小湖,連一個建有澡堂的小島(因此公園名字的字面意義為“沐浴”)。今天,連有花園的複式堂王宮殿,一年四季都吸引很多遊客和華沙居民參觀。
