fotoplastikon-warsawOne of the last examples of the fotoplastikon popular in the early 20th century stands unscathed in the centre of Warsaw and continues to enjoy great popularity.

Short description

T he term Kaiserpanorama or Fotoplastikon refers to a mass medium popular at the turn of the 20th century that allowed up to 25 people at a time to view stereoscopic series of images through a peephole. The images shown were mainly of exotic destinations and landscapes that were unaffordable for ordinary people. One rotation of the image series, which were automatically transported in a circle behind a cylindrical wooden panelling, took half an hour.

Such a Fotoplastikon has stood in Warsaw’s city centre, in the immediate vicinity of the Palace of Culture, since 1905.
