Full description
Join this guided tour of the Palace of Culture and Science, one of the highest and most magnificent buildings in Warsaw and visible from almost all places in the city. As an added perk, skip the line to the viewing terrace. During the tour, discover the characteristic interiors of the Palace of Culture and Science: ballrooms with excellent woodwork, conference rooms with original furniture and equipment from the ’50s, and majestic marble staircases. Your tour guide will bring you closer to the entire history of the building from 1952 until now. Enjoy entertaining stories and anecdotes as you walk through the building’s history. At the end of your journey, skip the line to the elevator and go to the viewing terrace on the 30th floor to discover a beautiful view of the city. You’ll never look at the Palace of Culture and Science in the same way after this tour.

    Absolutely fascinating to hear the history of the building. A very informative tour. The only thing I would say is on the meeting point that you detail the meeting point is in the palace up the stairs, hidden on the right. We nearly missed the tour as we couldn't find the local ticket office and there are no signs in the Palace. So glad we didn't miss it! Wonderful to see sights from the viewing platform as well.

    Very good guide and an interesting building to explore. I liked the view from the top. It was a bit hard to find the meeting spot because Google maps directed me to the wrong entrance. You need to use the main entrance.

    Sehr zu empfehlende Führung mit einem tollen Abschluss auf der Terrasse. Von dort hat man einem schönen Ausblick auf die polnische Hauptstadt.
