Great Second Life Destinations: Wilanow Palace, A Polish Baroque Masterpiece set in a Gorgeous Park Setting


Magnificent Wilanow Palace is in Warsaw and is one of Poland's greatest architectural treasures.The Palace was built for King John III Sobieski in the last quarter of the 17th century, and was enlarged by later owners. It is simply beautiful to see, and is a European masterpiece.

The Second Life rendition, still under construction, is one of the most gorgeous destinations in Second Life. the textures and art reproductions has been painstakingly crafted and are some of the best I have seen in any Second Life architectural project. I am dazzled by the Palace and kept on going back to take a large number of photographs and GIF images of fountains which are in abundance here. I highly recommend that you visit.


I will be reviewing the magnificent  interior of the palace here tomorrow.
Update:  You can find the interior review here:

I took all photographs using Windlight Sky Setting Places - Bentham.

Wilanow Palace can be visited at the following location. Please be aware that it is still under construction and be respectful of any residents and builders if you walk through.
