Recovered Heritage. On the 100th Anniversary of the Peace of Riga
A hundred years ago, the operation of restitution to Poland of many priceless works of art and national mementoes looted by Russia during the partitions began. Among them were also items from the collections of king Stanisław August, which formed part of the furnishings of the Royal Łazienki. Polish cultural property was returned as a result of the Peace of Riga. The exhibition at the Open-Air Gallery at Al. Ujazdowskie avenue is devoted to the peace agreement of 1921.
