Let the pictures speak for themselves!! The extra quick ride up the thirty floors in the elevator, masks the height up there. Simply amazing!

From this place you can have the best view in Warsaw. It is worth to go up and enjoy the city view. We were lucky because it Starter snowing when we were up!!! Great experience!

This is a must visit spot in Warsaw. The building itself was beautiful, high rise and could be seen from anywhere. There are some museums inside. But, the most interesting is going up to the top and see the whole city of Warsaw.

interesting stop. allow an hour / 90 minutes maximum. ensure you go on a clear day. we didnt need to pre-book, just walked straight in and up in the lift. We took some nice photos of Warsaw from up the top...a tick off the list.

The views are ok but there is nothing exciting with the actual building. The outside building on the outside is intetesting. It reminds of the Senate building in New York.

From the top of the building you can admire the view of the city for a very good price! At the ground floor there is a museum that refers to steel art(dont know if is a permanent exhibition)
