JMA_Villa_Nova_107

The baroque facade of the royal palace in Warsaw. The place is told to be a nobility house, an Italian garden villa and a French palace in the style of Louis XIV all in one.


Villa Nova or in Polish Wilanow is one of Warsaw quarters, originally a village where John III Sobieski (the one who commandeered the battle of Vienna >>>) build his summer residence. The palace with an extensive park, rebuilt and reconstructed after the war struggles is still the very centre of this part of the city.
