This week’s photos are all essentially the same, but I couldn’t choose which one to share so I uploaded all three. Situated in downtown Warsaw, the capital of Poland, the Palace of Culture and Science is the tallest and, in my opinion, grandest building in the country; my Polish friends would disown me for saying that, due to it being a remnant Stalin and Soviet influence.
Today, the Palace offers a great panoramic view from the observatory at the top, as well as a landmark for lost tourists, as it is visible from all over the city. At 237 m (778 ft), four clocks were added to its tower just ahead of the new millenium, briefly granting it the title of “tallest clock tower in the world.”
** These photos were probably taken by my dear friend and travel companion, Joseph Chakola; if not, then I might have taken them using his trusty camera (an iPhone 6).
