Eastern Europe Trip // Warsaw: Palace Of Culture And Science That Looks Like Empire State Building – Standing at the heart of Warsaw, the capital of Poland is the Palace of Culture and Science (Palac Kultury i Nauki, PKiN), which I normally call it the Empire State Building of Poland as it really looks a bit a like with the one in New York City except this being very short, like a dwarf version of it (237m height).
A little history about the building is the name was formally called Joseph Stalin Palace of Culture and Science, only after Soviet Union went down and they remove Mr Stalin’s name from it. As being the city’s most visible landmark, one will not missed it, it’s also located at the central train station. The building currently serves as an exhibition and offices with the Museum of Communism at the ground floor.
Initially thought of heading up to the observation floor to check it out, but the ticket to go up there is 17 Zloty, so we’ve decided to move on and spend the money somewhere else. A picture below of the building is more than enough. YEAH!
Some tank exhibition down the Palace of Culture and Science.
