A sure sign that winter is on its way, the gardens of Wilanów Palace have again been illuminated as per the complex’s annual tradition.

According to the organizers, “the elements and details of the light exhibition refer to iconographic sources, the coat of arms of Jan III Sobieski and the symbolism of the palace.”

“The entrance to the garden is guarded by eagles adorning the illuminated pergola,” they continue.

“In the northern garden, you can walk along the avenue planted with vines and see the illuminated gazebo stylized in the 17th century. From there, it goes to the upper terrace illuminated with candelabra, where there are illuminated coats of arms of King Jan III and intricately decorated pavilions.”

Spectacularly hallucinogenic, the effect is not unlike following Alice through the looking glass.

Those who enter find themselves inside a stunning trail of shimmering oddities that culminate with the Garden of Dreams, a surreal world that takes visitors journeying past vivid and fantastical installations whilst classical tunes are piped in the background.

Opened a couple of days ago, the extravaganza will be supplemented by more lights in the Rose Garden on December 4th.
