PALACE OF CULTURE AND SCIENCE
The Palace was a "gift of the Soviet people to the Polish nation". Its construction started in 1952 and lasted until 1955. It was designed by Soviet architect Lev Rudnev. The architecture of the building is closely related to several similar skyscrapers built in the Soviet Union, which were inspired by American art deco buildings.
This multi-functional facility is located on the site of the former 10th-Anniversary Stadium, in Praga district of Warsaw. Its construction started in 2008 and finished in 2011. The stadium was one of the venues for Euro 2012 hosted jointly by Poland and Ukraine. It has a fourth category in the classification of UEFA (the highest).
This park-and-palace complex was transformed into its present shape and appearance by Poland's King Stanisław August Poniatowski in the 18th century. Apart from visiting such gems of the European architecture as the Palace on the Isle or the Old Orangery, you can stroll on paths and alleys surrounded by trees and flowers. Visitors can choose between the Romantic Garden, the Royal Garden, the Modernist Garden and the new Chinese Garden
It is the oldest part of the capital city - surrounding streets feature medieval architecture.
Warsaw's Old Town has been placed on the UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites as an outstanding example of a near-total reconstruction of a span of history covering the 13th to the 20th century.
The complex served as the official residence of the Dukes of Masovia, and since the 16th century, the seat of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth: The King and Parliament (Chamber of Deputies and Senate). Today it is a historical and national monument, and it is listed as a national museum. The Royal Castle is one of Warsaw's most recognizable landmarks, with works of art of great artistic and historic value.
