Warsaw - Construction time again
A room with a view
The view from the 26th floor is more than adequate. The Palac Kultury is the tallest building in Poland and one of the most controversial since many consider it to be a symbol of Soviet domination.

When angels cry
Originally built in the 14th century, not even the holy building was spared during the attacks of WW2. The exterior reconstruction is based on 400-year-old drawings.

Erased from memory
The book displays the names of Marx, Engels and Lenin. But the name Stalin has been plastered over.
Swimming in the clouds
The pool at 44th floor offers exceptional views of the city, being the highest indoor swimming pool in Europe.
Just passing through
The building itself is the third tallest hotel in Europe. They made a hole in the middle not to block the sun from neighbouring buildings.
