Warsaw – Skylines and views

This thread is about photos of views of Warsaw’s skyline, most of them taken from the observation deck of Palace of Culture and Science. All photos were taken by me on my Warsaw trip in June 2008.





Warsaw is one of the cities in Europe that has the largest number of skyscrapers. Only London, Paris, Moscow and Frankfurt can compete with Warsaw as the tallest cities in Europe. What is even more special is that most of the skyscrapers are located in the heart of downtown (Sródmiescie), in contrary to most other European cities. In the districts of Wola, Muranowska and Ochota there are also some skyscrapers. Since these districts are really close to downtown, Warsaw has an almost continous skyline. The tallest buildings are the Palace of Culture and Science from 1955, in the core of downtown, and Warsaw Trade Center in Wola. Most new skyscrapers are popping up around "The Palace", as if they want to show the old tower of "The Palace", that was a gift from Stalin, that capitalism is stronger than communism.

ATTENTION! Please note that I really appreciate if you just comment about the topic in the specific link that is posted, because I will post one separate thread about each part since there are many large photos. Thanks! Also consider: 56k warning! :O
