Saxon Gardens, Warsaw

#2 of 22 in Parks in Warsaw
The Saxon Garden is a 15.5–hectare public garden in central Warsaw, Poland, facing Piłsudski Square. It is the oldest public park in the city. Founded in the late 17th century, it was opened to the public in 1727 as one of the first publicly accessible parks in the world.
The Saxon Garden was originally the site of Warsaw fortifications, "Sigismund's Ramparts," and of a palace built in 1666 for the powerful aristocrat, Jan Andrzej Morsztyn. The garden was extended in the reign of King Augustus II, who attached it to the "Saxon Axis", a line of parks and palaces linking the western outskirts of Warsaw with the Vistula River.
The park of the adjoining Saxon Palace was opened to the public on 27 May 1727. It became a public park before Versailles (1791), the Pavlovsk Palace, Peterhof Palace and Summer Garden (1918), Villa d'Este (1920), Kuskovo (1939), Stourhead (1946), Sissinghurst (1967), Stowe (1990), Vaux-le-Vicomte (1990s), and most other world-famous parks and gardens.

  • Near the old town, next to Krakowskie suburbs a beautiful piece of tranquility. The monumental fountain Delights. Next door: A permanent honour at the grave of the Unknown Soldier under the arcades of the former Saxon Palace (maybe rebuilt?). Tables with carved battlefields are impressive.

  • A beautiful place to see in Stuttgart. Extraordinary natural and historical beauty. There are places for both children and the adults. There's a small but very funny boat trip inside, for free. In the castle, there are interesting figures. You can find vegan food options inside the canteen. Prices are fine, there's a discount in entrance fee for students. Suggested.
  • One of the places to relax in Warsaw in spring-summer-autumn time. It's near the Old Town, so you can grab a coffee to go and spend some time among trees, flowers, beautiful fountain and sculptures. There is big playgroup for children 3-15 y.o.
