Palace of Culture and Science – Warsaw
Originally known as the Joseph Satlin Palace of Culture and Science (Pałac Kultury i Nauki imienia Józefa Stalina, in Polish), the building lost the name of the head of Soviet occupation of Poland and nowadays is named Palace of Culture and Science.
The building currently serves as an exhibition centre and office complex. The Palace contains several facilities related to culture and science, like cinemas, theatres, bookshops, a concert hall, museum, university offices and even a swimming pool. At 144 metre height the, terrace of the 30thfloor is a well-known tourist attraction with a panoramic view of the city.
In 2010, the illumination of the building was modernised and high-power LED lights were installed, allowing the Palace to take various colours at night, including the pinkish purple shown in the photo.
