Wilanow is one of Warsaw quarters (Poland), 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.  It is told to be a nobility house, an Italian garden villa and a French palace in the style of Louis XIV all in one.
