#Palace Day 2022 at the Royal Łazienki
You are cordially invited to #PalaceDay, which is organized each year, on 19 July, in European Royal Residences. On this day, many palace-museums can be visited free of charge and, in addition, there will be special attractions waiting for you there!
Do visit us, and please confirm your presence at the Royal Łazienki on Facebook and Instagram with the #PalaceDay hashtag. This year’s themes are: biodiversity, gardens and parks, water and nature motifs in art. And where else can you find all these, other than at the Royal Łazienki! Everyone is welcome: adults, young people and children.
