For the tenth time we will see the Royal Garden of Light in Wilanów. – The exhibition in this form will be with us for the last time. In 2022, we will completely rebuild the exhibition. The new project is ready, and the effective installations are under production, the organizers say.
The light exhibition from the 2012-13 season is one of the attractions of Warsaw during the autumn and winter period. The tenth season started on Saturday. – Creating such a unique place was a great challenge, but thanks to the latest technology it was possible to revive historical elements and make the garden extremely popular. The Royal Garden of Light has gained many loyal customers who visit it several times during one cycle. We are very happy about it – said Grzegorz Mazur, head of the Historical Reconstruction and Sales Department at the Museum of King Jan III’s Palace in Wilanów.
– The exhibition in this form will be with us for the last time. In 2022, we will completely rebuild the exhibition. The new project is ready and the effective installations are under production. I am convinced that the new exhibition will delight the visitors even more and will make people from the farthest corners of not only Poland but also the world come to visit Wilanów, ‘added Mazur.
Unlike usual, this season, from the very beginning, viewers will be able to admire the exhibition in Taras Dolny. There will be shows of lights shimmering to the rhythm of the music. The Wilanów light exhibition uses half a million professional, energy-saving eco-LED diodes, which consume eight times less energy than traditional light bulbs. Visitors to the Wilanów park will be led to the Royal Garden of Light after dark by a 75-meter luminous tunnel in which classical music resounds.
On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays mappings will be shown on the facade of the palace building, i.e. three-dimensional shows combining light, image and sound. Displaying them in this way creates the illusion of a living building. During mapping, palace windows show, among others, King Jan III and Queen Marysieńka, viewers are witnesses of the entourage and a show of court dances. – As in previous years, we are planning special events, including St. Nicholas’ Day and Valentine’s Day. We also have some additional projects that must remain surprises for now. We hope that this season the pandemic will not prevent us from the efficient functioning of the garden again. We acted according to the rules set out by the Chief Sanitary Inspector, and thanks to this, we managed to maintain the continuity of the exhibition, recalled Mazur.
The Royal Garden of Light will be open daily from 17 to 21, and on Saturdays – until 21.30.
