Warsaw

Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art

  ul. Jazdów 2 ,   No District          (+48) 22 628 12 71     10 Jan 2020

Completed in a baroque style in 1730, Ujazdowski was gutted by fire during WWII. Though the original walls and foundations remained structurally sound the communist authorities decided to tear down the shell of the building with the intention of building a military theatre on the site. Common sense prevailed and the 1970s saw Ujazdowski rebuilt following its original style. Used as a military hospital in the years leading up to the war, it now has several large exhibition halls dedicated to showcasing a rotating collection of the very best contemporary art; find a wild mix of the good, the bad and the ugly, featuring the work of Poland’s leading contemporary artists. Worthy and undoubtedly necessary, the gallery also houses a very good bookshop and reading room where you can freely peruse a huge collection of albums, magazines and books many of which are in English. There is also a fantastic cinema on site (U-Jazdowski Kino) plus a top notch restaurant and café.
