There is a live broadcast to the beautiful Castle Square (Plac Zamkowy), located in the medieval Old Town of Warsaw. As you can see in our webcam, the square is always crowded: locals and tourists visit the Castle Square as one of the most popular sights. Castle Square is a traditional place for various events, celebrations and concerts.

The key attraction of the Castle Square is the Royal Castle of the 14th century, which is perfectly visible in our webcam online. In the 14th century the castle has a wooden structure in the Gothic style. Later it was reconstructed and turned into a stone palace.

In the past the capital of Poland was the city of Krakow. With the change of the capital city to the Warsaw, the castle received the royal residence status and had a name of Royal Castle. Also, the fortress served as legislative and executive authorities meeting place.

The first kind of Poland - Sigismund III ordered to rebuild the palace. So, the castle got the early Baroque style view.

Now, the Royal Castle, which is perfectly visible in our live webcam, has unique expositions, luxurious rooms, hall of the Senate and, of course, royal chambers.


Every year in the Royal Castle there are musical performances, concerts, theatrical performances of the history and culture of Poland 18-19 centuries.

In the middle of the Castle Square there is a column erected in honor of the first King Sigismund III, which you see in the live broadcast just to the left.

It is curious: this tower appeared in history before it was established on Castle Square. Sigismund III decided to build this monument in honor of his victory with the rebels who wanted to overthrow the ruler.


The Castle Square and the monument of King Sigismund III Vasa are the beginning of the Royal Route, which runs from the royal palace, passing the Łazienki Park to Wilanów, the former country residence of John III Sobieski.
