A good place if you want to see all warsaw from the top. But it’s a little bit overpriced 30 zlots to get to the top. Also there you can buy souvenirs and other stuff, take a pictures (catch the moments)

Views from the viewing gallery are amazing. Plenty of room to walk around and take your time. Had a coffee in the cafe in the lobby - good value and very welcoming.

A symbol of Soviet oppression. The peoples in most Warzaw Pact Countries had to pay for a similiar building in their capitals. From a purely architectural point of view it has its merits but it is difficult to be objective...

Visited the viewing gallery just to tick the box. It is not particularly high & offers nothing out of the ordinary except that you can spot aircraft approaching Chopin airport in the distance. Just ok.
