What a view from the 30th floor, all the way round Warsaw. Some stunning pictures. I did think 20PLN was good value for the access to the lift. 1 - 30 in less than 30 seconds!! Solo visit only because my partner does not do...More

We saw this splendid building dominating the skyline as we took the bus from the airport to the city centre. Built by the Russians, these type of buildings are common in former Easter block countries. We decided to walk there on one of the days...More

The most impressive building I've ever been inside. The hallways are amazing, especially considering the history and origins of the Palace - the view from the top is superb. Even looking at the building from the outside is a must. Warsaw's best attraction. Plenty of...More

Everytime I see this monumental building, I feel myself very impressed. This “Stalin’s style” architecture looks gorgeous really. If you visit Moscow, you can see some such buildings too. Very interesting, but this building is some age as me 😀 I took some night photos...More

Had a great visit to this beautiful building, we took the lift to the viewing platform at the top of the building with its panoramic views of Warsaw, lovely but small gift shop at the top.

The locals are used to calling her ugly and a stain on the city - but to be honest, it is a glorious architectural monument that can be seen from everywhere in the city - and nobody can deny it's beautifully lit in the dark!

It's a great place to get a panoramic view of the city centre. The terrace itself is open which is a plus, but there is also a little area inside in case it gets cold (or if you want to grab some coffee) Tip: buy...More
