30th floor Pałac Kultury i Nauki – A stunning view

This is, in my opinion, one of the best views in the city apart from the PAST-a building in ul. Zielna, which is only opened on certain occasions. Now, some people look for and go to some office skyscrapers, to cafes, restaurants, hotels, but for me the 30th floor of the Palace of Culture is just like Pałac itself – good and old, full of stories and very inviting. This is also the highest building in Poland, so the occasion is double, so to say.

I can’t get over the idea that the 30th floor was supposed to be a terrace from which people of Warsaw should be watching the great Russia in the East. For those of you who don’t understand my crazy thoughts: Pałac is called “a gift from Stalin” as it was supposed to be a gift from the Russian nation for the people of Poland. The idea came to existence in Stalin’s head, and Pałac was built by Russian workers.
