Follow one of the ladies of the court to the Wilanow Palace – summer house of king Jan III Sobieski to feel magnificent atmosphere of 17th century court life. You’ll be guided in the palace by a lady in a baroque costume who shares all the secrets of seventeenth-century salons and alcoves. You will have the unique opportunity to visit the royal residence and get to know it, as it was three hundred years ago. You'll see real baroque outfits (touch the corset and see how it affected the body), you can even learn baroque bows if you wish to. In this way, visiting the museum will never be boring, and you will understand what life really was like in the old days.
I'm a historical animator and reenactor of 17th Century Baroque lifestyle. I even combine hobby with my job: for 5 years I've been working in in the Museum of King Jan III's Palace from 17th century! On a daily basis I work in a baroque dress, doing dance classes for children, conducting workshops on etiquette, baroque makeup, guiding groups in the palace. I know all the secrets of living on the royal court in 17th century.
I will provide entrance tickets to the palace.
We will visit the palace in Wilanów, the only baroque residence in Poland that was preserved from the 17th cenury and was not destroyed during World War II. This is one of the biggest monuments in Warsaw. By coming to the museum yourself, you'll never know it like you would with an experienced guide - in this case a lady who lived in the palace during the king's time.
