Pałac Kultury i Nauki (Palace of Culture and Science) Review

This massive Stalinist-Gothic structure looks like a wedding cake and is the main landmark in the city. From the 30th floor you can get a panoramic view. The old joke runs that this is Warsaw's best view because it is the only place from which you can't see the palace. To view all of urban Warsaw from 700 feet up, buy tickets at the booth near the east entrance. The building houses a number of facilities, including a swimming pool and the Museum of Science and Technology. Also in the palace is the Teatr Lalek, a good puppet theater (the entrance is on the north side).
