If you ever visit Warsaw, have a look inside the Palace of Culture. There are 3000 rooms, a swimming pool, a cinema, museums, theatre and a bar or two.
One of the coolest places is Cafe Kulturana which is on the east entrance side of the building. Wannabe intellectual-types sit around discussing art,drinking Paulaner beer or sipping mojitos. Or expats go there and try and blend in. It's a good place to start off an evening because it is right in the centre of town (in Warsaw bars are dotted around all over the place).
So, while you down your first pint in these historic surroundings, you can talk about where to go for the pub crawl.
Here are some photos taken inside the Palace. Many fixtures and fitting are original.
I would like this question answered - Is the Palace of Culture in Warsaw the highest clock tower in the world? This was the general impression for some time but now I'm not sure.
BTW you can see a photo of it on the blog sidebar
Please enlighten me.
