Palace of Culture and Science (PKiN)

Palace of Culture and Science is the tallest building in Poland, built in the 1950s and serving as a cultural and business center. What used to be a relic of the former political system, is now one of the most recognizable symbols of Warsaw. The observation tower of PKiN offers a picturesque view of the entire city—it’s worth to enter the top floor and enjoy the city from this perspective!


Located in the PKiN building, this traditional movie theatre has been releasing the best selection of highly-acclaimed movies since 2001. A modern cinema in a legendary building perfectly symbolizes the atmosphere of today's Warsaw. The venue owns 8 different screens (1410 sits altogether) plus a cafe, a cinema bar and a summer terrace.
