Explore the secrets of Łazienki Park: 15th September

On 15th September we took a walk around Łazienki Park. The weather was cooperating with us: sun was shining, clouds disappeared  and it was warm like in the mid summer. Although almost everybody has been to Łazienki Park before our walk, the group was interested in the history and beauty of the place. We met next to the polish hero’s Józef Piłsudski statue and we learned some things about this part of history, that Poland was reborn in 1918 after its partitions. It was also told who’s baby was (probably) conceived in Belvedere Palace. We also have seen one of the most famous Pole statues: Frederic Chopins. We talked about his music, and what we see when we look at the monument of the composer.  We’ve even visited the Chinese Garden (however we didn’t leave the park :). All of us were wondering why it looks abandoned.  We’ve seen the 19th century gas lanterns that are turned on and off by a man who is employed for doing this old fashioned job every morning and every evening too. Our tour has finished in front of Łazienki Palace. It was the right place to listen about why the entire park is named after the royal bathrooms. After the 1,5 h walk some of us enjoyed coffee and other delicious things in the garden of Cafe Amfiteatr.
