Belvedere Palace
Belvedere Palace is located at the end of the Ujazdowskie Avenues, right next to Lazienki Park. History of this building goes back to the 17th century. In the time of Stanislaw August it was a porcelain and faience factory. Its present form in Baroque style dates from 1818 when it was remodeled by Jakub Kubicki for the Russian governor – general Prince Constantine and his wife.


On 29th November 1830 this palace was attacked by Polish officers and students and November Insurrection began. The prince escaped dressed as a woman. In 1919 the palace was home to Marshal Jozef Pilsudski and then became the residence of Polish Presidents until 1994. Between palace and entrance to Lazienki Gardens there is a monument to Marshal Pilsudski made by J. Konarski to the design by S. Ostrowski erected in 1998.
