This whopper is located in the delightful Lazienki Park. Also known as Zamek Ujastowski (the Ujast Castle) the building was in fact once a royal residence, but a string of fires, sackings and political problems meant that the building lost its residential function. Rebuilt after World War II, the baroque shell now houses Warsaw's leading Centre of Contempoary Art. All manner of marvellous exhibitions can be enjoyed, from shows by local talent to those by stars in the art world from across the globe. Also to be found in the complex are an excellent restaurant and bookshop.

Wonderful place but a mess to get around - no useful English markers or maps, there are rooms on the right on the left upstairs downstairs outside inside... how a first time visitor is supposed to find their way around I have no idea...
Check out their website for special events - I saw a few very cool concerts at this unusual venue last month. Really happy I looked into it.
Really beautiful location. The castle in the park is great for a wander on a sunny day.
I find CCA one of those really pretentious places. Maybe it's the lack of humour to everything. The putting art on a pedestal and treating it soooo seriously that I think is a very Polish thing and a pretty outdated approach. Where's Duchamp when you need him?

It's one of the most interesting cultural places in Warsaw. Frequently you can find there new exhibits and events. I can reccomend it.
Every woman should see it. It's a must!
