1. The Royal Baths


The Palace of Culture and Science is the highest Polish building and probably the most famous one. It was constructed in the years 1952-1955 as “the evidence of eternal friendship and a gift of the Soviet Nation to the Polish people” from the initiative of Joseph Stalin.
The Palace has 42 floors, 231 meters in height including the spire and there are almost 3300 rooms there. It is a seat of many offices, Congress Hall, Dramatic Theatre, Museum of Technology, Children Palace, Studio and Lalka Theatre, Cinema, Swimming Pool and many others.
The Palace of Culture and Science is a very controversial building for many habitants. Some of them love it and can’t imagine the city view without it and others don’t like it and have negative connotations with it, as it is in some way a symbol of communism. Undeniably it is an integral part of the capital and it would be hard to imagine the panorama of Warsaw without it.

3. The Uprising Museum


The Uprising Museum was opened in 2004 on the 60th anniversary of the Uprising. It was built to honor those who fought and died for the freedom of the country and the capital as well as teach younger generations about this historic event.
The Museum uses many modern audiovisual techniques in its expositions. Its goal is to show the fight as well as everyday life during the occupation. The main parts of the exposition are photographs in huge sizes, computers and screens. The planned route guides the visitors chronologically through events. Visitors have the opportunity to get around in the scenery from over 70 years ago and see over 30 thousand pieces of exhibitions.
