Królikarnia, which translates as 'the rabbit house', is a lavish palace in Mokotów named for its role as King Augustus II the Strong’s rabbit warren for hunting. Built between 1782 and 1786, the palace has been home to a number of interesting residents including insurrection leader Tadeusz Kościuszko and Charles Thomatis, a man many believe acted as a pimp for King Stanisław August Poniatowski. Like much of Warsaw, the palace was obliterated during the war but meticulously rebuilt in 1964 and now operates as an art museum that features the works of famed Polish sculptor and Auschwitz survivor Xawery Dunikowski on the verdant park grounds (you can keep an eye out for The Soul Escaping the Body, a sculpture that is replicated on Dunikowski’s tombstone). Visitors can end their museum visit with a meal courtesy of the café which prepares picnics and offers blankets for outdoor dining, a must considering its location on an escarpment overlooking the Vistula River. Park visiting hours are dawn till dusk.
