    National Gallery of Art



    Photo By: afagen

    Zachęta National Gallery of Art is the oldest exhibition site in Warsaw, with a tradition stretching back to the mid 19th Century. It is located in the heart of Warsaw, next to the Saski Park, and in the immediate vicinity of the University of Warsaw and the Academy of the Fine Arts.

    The origins of Zachęta can be traced back to 1860, when the Society for the Encouragement of the Fine Arts was founded in Warsaw (at the time when the city was located within the Russian partition zone). As a civic initiative it was intended to promote art for the mutual benefit of both artists and society at large.

    Bank Square / Plac Bankowy



    Photo By: baio

    Bank Square (Polish: Plac Bankowy) in Warsaw is one of that city's principal squares. Located in Warsaw's downtown area, next to the Saxon Garden and the Warsaw Arsenal, it is also one of the city's main public transport hubs, with several bus stops, streetcar stops, and a Warsaw Metro station. In the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, the buildings on the square were destroyed and the square ceased to exist. After the war, city planners reconstructed only its historic western part, reconfiguring it into a rectangle. The Bank Square's present-day landmarks include the Blue Tower, a large skyscraper built on the site of the Great Synagogue that had been destroyed during the war by the Germans.

    The Krasinski Palace (Polish: Palac Krasinskich, otherwise known as Palace of the Republic - Palac Rzeczypospolitej), is a baroque palace in Warsaw, Poland. It is located on Krasinski Square (Plac Krasinskich). The palace was built in 1677-83 for the Voivode of Plock, Jan Dobrogost Krasinski, according to design by Tylman of Gameren. The palace was burned down and demolished by the Germans during the World War II. It was later rebuilt. Today it is a part of the Polish National Library's Special Collections Section (Manuscripts and Old Prints) from the Zaluski Library. The building's facade features sculptures by Andreas Schlüter. The decorations inside the building were designed in the 1780s by Domenico Merlini and were restored after World War II. Nearby there is a garden, accessible to the public since 1768.
