The second day in Warsaw I went to Palace of Culture and Science. Palace of Culture and Science was the very first building I saw when I first left Warsaw airport and got out of the metro in downtown Warsaw area, and I also saw it every day because my Airbnb happened to be right across from it. Palace of Culture and Science was a gift from the Soviet Union to Poland during the communist occupation era. At first, Polish people resented it because of its communist origin, but now not so much.
At the first floor of Palace of Culture and Science features a museum on the left and a theater on the right. Inside Palace of Culture and Science there’s also a cinema and a restaurant. On the 30th floor is the tallest observatory in Warsaw, offer 360-degree views of the city from approximately 100m high.
After Palace of Culture and Science, I went to Warsaw Uprising Museum. This museum has a lot of exhibitions about WWII and in particular about Warsaw Uprising, near the end of WWII where Polish fought for their freedoms. I did not take many pictures at Warsaw Uprising Museum to pay my respect for those who fought and sacrificed.
After Warsaw Uprising Museum, my friend wanted to go to the zoo, so we went to City Zoological Garden on the other side of the Vistula River. There we saw a lot of animals such as elephants, giraffes, wolves, lions, hippos, rhinos, and many different species of bird.
This is it for my second day in Warsaw, Poland. Stay tuned for more to come!
