Palace of Culture and Science Tours

The Palace of Culture and Science is the tallest building in Poland, completed in 1955 as a gift to Poland from the Soviet people and Joseph Stalin himself. The building iscalled Pałac Kultury i Nauki in Polish, abbreviated PKiN, and has over 3,000 rooms on its 42 floors, which include offices, institution headquarters and the Polish Academy of Sciences. There is a post office, cinema and swimming pool, as well as museums, libraries and theaters.

The Congress Hall (Sala Kongresowa) and Concert Hall (Sala Koncertowa) are considered the most important of their kind in the country. The former can hold nearly 3,000 people and has been considered the home of Poland’s jazz music scene. Artists such as Bruce Springsteen and the Rolling Stones have performed here. 

Not surprisingly, there have been some negative feelings around the building, as many Polish citizens believe it is a symbol of Soviet domination. It was originally known as the Joseph Stalin Palace of Culture and Science, but the dedication was later removed.

The main reason tourists visit the Palace of Culture and Science is for the terrace on the 30th floor. Standing at 114 meters, travelers can enjoy stunning panoramic views of Warsaw from ‘trzydziestka.’

Practical Info

The Palace of culture and Science is open daily from 9am to 8pm and there is a charge to visit the 30th floor terrace.
