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 local 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.

    Unmissable visit. To enter this tower, to discover the whole history of these places, is to take a ticket to the prosperous period of communism, and to measure how much the USSR of the time wanted to exert its influence on the Polish people. I really loved being there, then, icing on the cake, taking the very fast elevator which brought me and the group, in just a few seconds, to the terrace, where the view of Warsaw is unique .

    Excellent tour with good information and access to parts of the building you wouldn’t normally see if you visit the skyline viewing area. Found it a little bit hard to find the meeting point, which is inside the building near the ticket desk. Otherwise an excellent tour! Thank you very much!

    The visit is really nice, maybe better off going in summer spring where you can have a better view from the top. The guide seemed tired and almost like talking following a script, even when he made “jokes” they were not perceived because of the tone and context of the narration. I still learned some interesting stuff so worth a visit. PS you may get it cheaper buying tickets in place
