This building is very striking. It resembles a giant concrete saucer.Considering it was built in 1960s Communist Poland it was groundbreaking for its time.There was a cake baking competition on when I visited which was amazing. Some of the entries were works of art.

This is a place that can hold a volleyball match, ice-hockey match, music concert, fairs or even circus. You have to check on their website what is on. There were fabulous concerts of Mike Oldfield, Yes, Jethro-Tull and others and championships (volleyball or ice-hockey). From...More
