Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw Poland
Athens 2004 Olympic Games Pin
The Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw is the tallest building in Poland and the eighth tallest building in the European Union. It is 231 metres (758 ft) tall, which includes a 43-metre high spire.
The building was conceived as a “gift from the Soviet people to the Polish nation”, and was completed in 1955. The structure was built in three years according to the design of the Soviet architect Lev Rudnev. Architecturally, it is a mix of Stalinist architecture, also known as Socialist Classicism, and Polish historicism inspired by American art deco skyscrapers. Currently it is the headquarters of many companies and public institutions, such as cinemas, theaters, libraries, sports clubs, universities (including Collegium Civitas), scientific institutions and authorities of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
