Lazienki Park

The baroque park, laid out in the 17th century, is one of the top sights in Warsaw. The main design element of the "garden of baths" is water. The Lazienki Palace is also charmingly reflected in a pool of water. The Lazienki Park was laid out by Tylman van Gameren, who worked as an architect and landscape planner for Count Stanislaw Lubomirski. One of the attractions of Lazienki Park are the free-roaming peacocks that proudly display their colorful feathers.
