This communist style building is located close to the PKiN building (The Palace of Culture and Science) and it use to be a PKO Bank branch, famous for being damaged by an explosion in 1979 and now being renovated by the same bank. A good way to see it better is from the PKiN building's observation terrrace.

Nowdays it's really nothing special, but this place obviously had importance. It's quite easy to locate and must have been something else when it was constructed, without any modern buildings around, which is now the case.

This is clearly marked out on many maps and quite easy to spot once in the area (it's a short circular building next to a busy roundabout surrounded by tall buildings). But actually there's very little to see - it's a bank, end of! However many years ago there was an explosion of part of the building and according to... More

At the intersection of 4 major roads, including tram whizzing on both sides there is this peculiar circular structure, a symbol of modernist Warsaw! @gargio76

It was so significant, that I walked passed it on several occasions, thinking it was a bank and commercial premises. May have been interesting when first construction, but nowadays it is weathered concrete grounds.

There is nothing interesting in it except that it blew out sometime ago. Money was flying all about the streets as it was a bank. So were the victims. The blow was to be heard a couple of miles around it. It was said that it was a gas explosion. That's about it.

A building with a circular ground plan, build in the 1960-ies and re-build after an explosion in 1979. It has a central location and a history for the older generation of Polish people, but not much more. There has been a bank inside most of the time.

Rotunda PKO is a great meeting point for everybody, because ot its localization in the center of Warsaw. You've also undergroun "Centrum" nearbly. However don't be surprised by crowd because you won't be only one people with thinking that it's the best place to start your meeting that day!

It used to be a example of modern architecture in the past. Part of the east square modern block of investments. It is a home of the key national bank in Poland and if anything for a plus, a good meeting point. Otherwise, not worth the photos.

The Rotunda is a great meeting-point but not really an attraction. Actually it's just a bank office in an interestingly shaped building. It lies at the cross of Marszałkowska street and Aleje Jerozolimskie, a few steps away from the Centrum metro station and is impossible to mistake for anything else so use it as your meeting-point for a night out...
