Łazienki Park (“Ła” is pronounced as “wa”) was my final stop in Warsaw and I almost didn’t go. It hadn’t been on my list of places to visit but I had about two hours before I had to head to the airport, so I dropped by for a brief stroll. And thankfully I did because it became my favourite part of Warsaw. The park was larger than I had imagined and thus within the two hours, I barely covered a small part of this urban paradise. Such a treasure waiting to be discovered…
Idyllic representation of a city park, surrounded by peace and serenity. Not a fan of the signs of urban life in the background (white high-rise building) but that can’t be helped in the city center.
Vibrant signs of life are to be seen everywhere around the park. Among them, a gorgeous mandarin duck caught my attention, as did several playful red squirrels here and there. And a gentleman in stone…???
Flowers were in full bloom in late spring and the lush greenery made me forget that I was still in a city.
More wandering around the park before heading to the airport, ending my short Polish weekend getaway.
Finally, the peacock. I’ve already mentioned him in the “Beautiful things in Warsaw” post but I can’t resist showing him off again here. First and possibly the only time in my life seeing a peacock opening up his train (new terminology learned, thanks Wiki) to assert his reign. Stole my heart right there ❤
