Looking up (1)

For th’Up’ squares this month, I am going to have a pleasurable look through my archives, some not posted before.

Here, we’re looking up at ‘Stalin’s Gift’ in Warsaw, on a night time wander over 4 years ago:

Linked to January squares at Becky’s here


  1. That’s an impressive building. Reminds me of many I saw in Moscow.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Oh yes, we looked up a that from our hotel, when we were in Warsaw some three years ago.

  3. That is a great building. We took the elevator ride to the top.

  4. I never did get up to that roof for the view 🙂 🙂

  5. It looks beautiful Sue. Here’s hoping things are looking up in 2021. Happy new year!

  6. Oh what a beautiful photo for today 😀 😀

  7. A superb photo, Sue. It looks so majestic. 🙂

  8. what a building, and what a trip that must have been

  9. An impressive building, although I think for something bearing Stalin’s name something evil-looking would be more appropriate.


  10. A great shot of a Warsaw landmark (eyesore?) it’s beginning to shrink as modern buildings go up around it.

  11. \the view down from up was fabulous too!

  12. I’ve never gone up there either. Even though everyone knows that the best place for a view is the top of a Stalin Tower – so that you see the view, not the tower! There are 7 of them in Moscow, so they present quite a challenge

  13. Wonderful photo! 🙂 The name of that building is the Palace of Culture and Science (Polish: Pałac Kultury i Nauki – PKiN). It was a gift of Soviet Union (it was bearing the name of Stalin but it was revoked long time ago) and it was called the Eighth Sister of Seven Sisters (a group of seven similar skyscrapers in Moscow).
