This Warsaw’s most recognizable and famous building is located in the very centre of the city, on a square biggest in Europe.
The skyscraper was constructed as a gift from the Russian people to Poland. The idea of constructing such a building was made by Josef Stalin, and the Palace of Culture and Science was built by over 3.5 thousands workers and soviet engineers.
The building was originally known as the Joseph Stalin Palace of Culture and Science. The name was changed during Poland’s transition to democracy. Stalin’s statutes and communist artwork were also removed during this time.
When it was built, the Palace was the second building in Europe as far as its height. The building is also one of the world’s tallest clock towers. The Palace is home to the biggest in Poland conference hall for 3000 people and its terrace on the 30th floor is a well-known tourists attraction with a panoramic view over the city.
