Palace of Culture and Science, Warsaw: 73 reviews and 121 photos


Palace of Culture and science seems to be one of the most significant examples of Soviet architecture worldwide. It is declared as a gift from Stalin to Pole people, but I guess not so much locals today like this structure.

It was built in 1952, structure is a place for more than 3000 rooms, also is 231 meters high. Nowadays it is the tallest building in Warsaw. I should say it is more impressive due to big size, but not architecture.

Actually for 20 zloty (5,10 euros) it is possible to lift up to see panorama of Warsaw, but I thought it is too much overpriced, so used St. Ann?s church as a platform.
