THE CASTLE – open
It is difficult to say when the Castle actually started to exist. The first references to it come from the 14th century. It was the king’s residence, the place were the parliament met, administrative and cultural centre of the country. Since September 1939 for nearly 40 years the east side of the Castle Square in Warsaw was in ruins. In 1984 reconstruction began. Today the elite is not its owner and user. We are. Everybody.
Officially known as Monument of History and Culture it should be associated with history – but history living, no matter how deep into it you delve, and culture – but culture available to everybody no matter how refined it is.
And this is the aim of the Atlantis Castle. The task of Atlantis is to bring the castle culture closer to you, and the task of the Castle is to make history alive.
The Educational Department during 30 years (yes, yes…) of its existence has prepared a 100 different active meetings with the castle halls and their past. These meetings are accompanied by productions which are described in the link REPERTORY. And how can your meetings with history look? We will tell you all about it later.
Thus we invite you to our time machine. We are convinced you will not regret it.
