Lazienki Park; Warsaw, Poland

Im always watching Rick Steves, Samantha Brown, Globe trekker and other miscellaneous travel DVD's. Slowly I have collected more and more dream
 vacations, and my newest is Laziekni Park in Warsaw Poland. The park was established in the 17th century with a Baroque and Neo Classical design. During WWII the park was nearly demolished, but since has been restored. In the park is a beautiful palace on the water, which holds some of Rembrandt and Peter Paul Rubens artwork. On the side of the lake is a Roman Amphitheatre. On the grounds there is also a "Small white house" which served as a vacation home, most popular with King Louis XVIII during his exile from France.
The park has hidden corners with  sculptures, live peacocks and luschious gardens. There are gondola rides in the lakes as well, ah... lets go :)

I would love to see that summer home.
