Wawel Royal Castle in Kraków
The Wawel Royal Castle and the Wawel Hill, with Wawel Cathedral (coronation and burial site of Polish monarchs), constitute the most historically and culturally important site in Poland. For centuries the residence of the Kings of Poland and the symbol of Polish statehood, the Castle is now one of the country’s premier art museums. According to the legend, Wawel is believed to have a Chakra, one of the world's main centers of spiritual energy, situated under St. Gereon's chapel.  The Wawel Chakra is said to be one of a few strongest places of power on the Earth.

Palace on the Water
Known also as Palace on the Isle, the building began as a bathhouse designed by Tylman Gamerski in 17th century. After King Stanisław August Poniatowski decided to convert it into his private quarters, Palace was remodeled by Domenico Merlini between 1764 to 1795. During World War II, Germans drilled holes into the walls for explosives but never got around to blowing it up. Palace on the Water is part of the Royal Łazienki Park in Warsaw, official website: http://www.lazienki-krolewskie.pl/en,home.html

Wilanów Palace
Palace was built for King Jan III Sobieski (commander-in-chief in the Battle of Vienna 1683), as his summer residence, in the 17th century. It is one of Poland's official national Historic Monuments. Palace was damaged by Germans in WWII, but after the war it was renovated, and most of the collection stolen by invaders was repatriated. Official website: http://www.wilanow-palac.pl/

Magnificent photos, Aleksandra.   

I love the variety of ceiling details, and all that lies beneath them!
They are truly beautiful buildings.  Their dimensions and shape are balanced and romantic.
It must be magical to live in a region saturated with rich Polish architecture and gardens.
Thanks for adding comments on history, Aleksandra. Star

The sculpture of the bench and woman seated, beside whom I imagine one can sit, is sweet.
