The Royal Route in Warsaw is a former communication route that led southward from the city’s Old Town. It now comprises a series of connecting Warsaw streets that feature a number of historic landmarks.

The Royal Route begins at Warsaw’s Castle Square and runs south down Krakowskie Przedmieście Street, Nowy Świat Street, Ujazdowskie Avenue, Belweder Street and Sobieski Street, finally to arrive at Wilanów (King Jan III Sobieski’s personal residence).

The route, with other parts of Warsaw Old Town, is one of Poland’s official national Historic Monuments as designated September 16, 1994. Its listing is maintained by the National Heritage Board of Poland.
