As a major update was nearly two months ago I will try to prepare somethin when I find some time. In the meantime, great comparison how Wola district changed during 1,5 year (actually not only Wola, but also skyline):

I heard there was going to be a cleaning or renovation of the Palace of Culture/Science. When's that planned for?

Hard to say. It was planned for this year, but unfortunetaly still no progress in this. It would be quite expensive (30 000 000 PLN ~ 7 000 000 EUR). But we can be sure, that when cleaned, it will look stunning! Below is the photo three years after completion (1958)

Isn't it a bit taboo because it's a symbol of Russian imperialism/colonialism?

It's quite complicated, but I wouldn't call it taboo This building has many fans and many opponents. Some people think it should be demolished, cause, as you said, they treat it as unwanted gift from Russians and symbol of their domination. But in fact it is very unprobable that it will happen - it is registered monument protected by law. It would require a lot of procedures to delete it from the list and then to demolish it. Moreover, undoubtedly it has become a symbol of Warsaw, and is quite recognizable. Also I've heard many opinions from foreigners, who like the fact that it is completely different to modern glassy skyscrapers. Also, many people associate it with american skyscrapers.

I think it's rather a matter of money - if city decides to clear it, for sure there will be many voices against, arguing that there are many other neglected buildings in much worse condition (a lot in Praga district for example).

It should definitely be preserved. Why not build a bigger tower right next to it so it loses its dominant appearance?

There were already plans like that but I don't think it's such a good idea...

According to the current plan for the area there will be buildings next to the Palace of Culture that will be taller than it (at least without counting it's spire but they can also be taller). The authorites want to sell one plot now, so there are chances that something is going to be built in some years from now.

Outside of Moscow, It's basically the Empire State Building of Europe and it should be treated as such. Who cares who built it?

Why? Architecture is architecture regardless who builds it.

Hilton Warsaw branch must have the worst architects in the whole planet. Perhaps they don't even use architects but structural engineers with no aesthetic judgement.
