How to get
Our number 3 f the top attractions in Warsaw is the Palace of Culture, which, together with the Old Town and the Royal Route, completes the city’s history. The Middle Ages are represented by the Old Town, modern times and the Golden Age by the Royal Route, and the Palace of Culture heralds the modern age and is a signpost for what may come.
For some Varsovians it is a symbol of the oppression of the totalitarian system of social realism (communism) between 1949 – 1989. However, we would like to focus on a different perspective. It is rather about the relationship between destruction and reconstruction, and here the Palace of Culture, built in 1955, is a symbol of the dawning of a new era that begins in a horrific event. It is thanks to the unruliness, the will for freedom and the willingness to sacrifice of the people of Warsaw that this social project succeeded.
