High Springs

The oldest park in the city was built around the 15th century and is a beautiful place to take a walk and take in its beauty. You can go to the market and get a picnic lunch and sit and enjoy it there on a nice day.

This is a large public garden in the city of Warsaw, it is beautiful and really makes you forget you're in a bustling city. It's Warsaw's answer to Central Park. There are some interesting statues dotted around which are interesting to look at, and in summer I imagine that there are many beautiful flowers in bloom. It's also near the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier which is an interesting thing to see. Unfortunately I couldn't stay long in these gardens because it was so cold, but it was nice to pass through.

The Saxon Garden was originally the site of Warsaw fortifications, "Sigismund's Ramparts," and of a palace built in 1666 for the powerful aristocrat, Jan Andrzej Morsztyn. The garden was extended in the reign of King Augustus II, who attached it to the "Saxon Axis", a line of parks and palaces linking the western outskirts of Warsaw with the Vistula River.

The park of the adjoining Saxon Palace was opened to the public on 27 May 1727. It became a public park before Versailles (1791), the Pavlovsk Palace, Peterhof Palace and Summer Garden (1918), Villa d'Este (1920), Kuskovo (1939), Stourhead (1946), Sissinghurst (1967), Stowe (1990), Vaux-le-Vicomte (1990s), and most other world-famous parks and gardens.

Initially a Baroque French-style park, in the 19th century it was turned into a Romantic English-style landscape park. Destroyed during and after the Warsaw Uprising, it was partly reconstructed after World War II.
