Fun fact is, the way it looks now is actually the 'original' appearance from 1823 (even before there stood an Orthodox Chapel). It got the new Russian styled facade by the end of the 19th century, when it underwent renovation by the Russian authorities in the process of Warsaw's Russification. In the Interbellum period of Polish sovereignity it was then restored back to its neoclassical appearance as well as after being badly damaged in WW2. Quite a varied stylistic history, huh?

That's the Norwegian government block. It's the same building that Breivik placed a bomb beneath a couple of years ago.
