Krasiński Garden (Ogród Krasińskich)
Located in: Śródmieście, at Plac Krasińskich.
This garden emerged in the second half of the 17th century, on the area of Jan Dobrogost Krasiński’s palace. It was designed by Tylman of Gameren, a prominent architect of the day of King Jan III Sobieski. Today, it boasts some ancient tree specimens, including ginkgo bilobas, caucasian wingnuts, black walnuts and Turkish hazels. At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, the garden acted as a summer salon for residents of the northern district, which was largely inhabited by poor Jews. In addition to the plants in the western part of the garden, there is also a partially-preserved Baroque piece of the original palace fence and gate, from the 18th century, which was placed around 1915.
Unfortunately, it stands today without the metal wings of the gate, which were destroyed in 1945, but the fact remains that this is one of the few authentic antiques left in Warsaw. On the park’s grounds there is a monument to Heroes of the War Under Monte Cassino. In 1965, the garden was added to the official register of antiquities.
