Photographer's Note

From WIKI: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warsaw_Palace_of_Culture_and_Science

The Palace of Culture and Science (Polish: Pałac Kultury i Nauki, also abbreviated PKiN) in Warsaw is the tallest building in Poland and the world's 187th tallest building. The building was originally known as the Joseph Stalin Palace of Culture and Science (Pałac Kultury i Nauki imienia Józefa Stalina), but in the wake of destalinization the dedication was revoked[citation needed]; Stalin's name was hastily removed from the interior lobby and one of the building's sculptures.

The building currently serves as an exhibition centre and office complex. It is also used for FM and TV broadcasting. It is 230.68 metres (757 ft) tall which includes the height of the spire of 43 metres. There are 3288 rooms on 42 floors, with an overall area of 123,000 m˛, containing cinemas, theatres, museums, offices, bookshops, and a large conference hall for 3000 people.
