Warsaw Culture and Science Palace

One of the stops in Warsaw was the Culture and Science Palace, which is a landmark building in Warsaw. The building itself did not seem so fancy at all, actually too huge to be nice I can say. A present from Russia to Poland. Even tough our hotel was just accross the building, it took us more than 20 minutes, to cross the street and to find the right entrance.

It is a cinema, theater, galeries, business and conferance complex, but the main attraction is to go up 30th floor and enjoy the view of the city from every angle. Especially worth visiting in a nice weather with clear sky.

Our son loves to use these wherever he finds. Warsaw was not an exception.

Children love to look at these and find out what they can see beyond city limits and try to find out something interesting. And if this spot is one of your latest stops, he can try to recognise where he had been in the previous days.

Unlike many towers we have been (for instance Empire State Building in NY, or Galata Tower in Istanbul or Eifel in Paris or Pisa in Italy or… that’s enough), there were no hassle of ticketing, elevator and viewing. Especially for children it is really annoying to be so up high but not to be able to see freely. The viewing terrace was wide and calm enough for him to enjoy the view of the city from every angle.
