"Museum of Marvels" is a beautifully illustrated book that reveals the microcosm and macrocosm of the Łazienki world. It is a pictorial guide which will let you experience moments of full visual delight thanks to marvellous and amusing illustrations to which you can come back on numerous occasions - just like to Łazienki.
On colourful pages of the pictorial guide to the Royal Łazienki, you will contemplate chickens escaping from a painting, the king bathed in a pink cloud of powder, squirrels dancing among autumn leaves, or a mythological satyr - half man, half goat. All this amidst laughing tourists and busy Museum staff. This interestingly published handsome guide enables entering historic buildings and discover their extraordinary treasures: a clock in the shape of a birdcage, a fragrant fountain or 18th-century ice cream vases. A whole array of impressions awaits you also in the Łazienki gardens, painted using vivid green colours of spring, depicting warm rays of summer sun, autumn mist and red bellies of common bullfinch against a background of white snow.
