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
That’s an impressive building. Reminds me of many I saw in Moscow.
Best wishes, Pete.
Oh yes, we looked up a that from our hotel, when we were in Warsaw some three years ago.
I thought you might know it!
That is a great building. We took the elevator ride to the top.
Sadly, I did no such thing!
I never did get up to that roof for the view 🙂 🙂
It looks beautiful Sue. Here’s hoping things are looking up in 2021. Happy new year!
Beautiful is not a-word I would use for that edifice, but I think better at night!
this is great Sue!!
Oh what a beautiful photo for today 😀 😀
Thanks, Cee….I’m having a nostalgic time going through archives…
A superb photo, Sue. It looks so majestic. 🙂
Majestic or domineering depending on your point of view
what a building, and what a trip that must have been
Warsaw was great, I went with Vivi and also met Meg there…a very chatty time we had, and good food!
marvellous 🙂 I’ll have to scroll back through your archives to find your posts
Well, these images in the coming days haven’t all been posted before…
ooh you’re spoiling us 😀
But of course, magnanimous me!
you are indeed 🙂
PS we are currently enjoying the concert in Vienna
Good! I saw the full concert this morning, and in the background have the BBC4 highlights now!
we weren’t organised enough to enjoy the full concert, but the highlights proving a lovely accompaniment as I catch up on some of today’s squares
An impressive building, although I think for something bearing Stalin’s name something evil-looking would be more appropriate.
A great shot of a Warsaw landmark (eyesore?) it’s beginning to shrink as modern buildings go up around it.
Personally, I would go for eyesore Meg,,.
\the view down from up was fabulous too!
Ah, I didn’t do that!
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
Seven in Moscow?
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 It was a gift of Soviet Union (it was bearing the name of Stalin but it was revoked long time ago) and it was called the Eighth Sister of Seven Sisters (a group of seven similar skyscrapers in Moscow).
Ah, thanks for the information!
😀 It is an interesting building 🙂 When I was living in Warsaw I took hundreds of photos of the palace 😉
