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.

    Educational and informative! The guide squeezed in a lot of information within a of 45mins trip. I learnt a lot about the history of Warsaw and this impressive bundling. The helicopter view of the city from terrace was exquisite. I took plenty of pics even though it was damm freezing cold!

    A must do while visiting Warsaw! The tour guide was very polite professional and friendly, full of knowledge and passion. She even brought us on a longer tour than expected as she had us so emersed in the experience and wanted more. To end the tour we got to see the best panoramic view of Warsaw.

    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!
