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.

    We really enjoyed getting so much information about the Palace of Culture. You could visit the most important rooms, which gave a good impression of the time. The view of the city is incredibly beautiful. But just going to the viewing platform would not have been enough for us. We are very happy to have booked this amazing tour!

    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.

    I booked the tour on short notice as I didn't want to queue for the observation deck, plus the cashier was very rude. So the tour was booked for about 1 1/2 hours later, went smoothly as always, and then it started on time. The tour turned out to be very interesting, you learn a lot about the building, including some anecdotes. I could have listened to the very nice and competent lady for longer, unfortunately most of the rooms in the building are occupied and therefore cannot be visited. The path to the viewing terrace finally leads over a few steps, just for information. This saves you the queue. I can only recommend the tour and will book it again next time.
