  • This is a cylindrical building is located opposite the building of culture. He is currently a bank by what only can be seen on the outside. It is nothing extraordinary, however due to ads that are installed to your around is a representative point in Warsaw. In this building, in 1979, there was an explosion by gas that killed 49 people.

  • The Rotunda stands in the heart of the modern Warsaw at a huge crossroads. The round was purpose built in the years 1966 built and houses a Bank since then. The building probably has long has his best years behind him. It very nice and also not unusual by today's standards. In Warsaw, the building is most popular as a meeting place for the locals. Too much is also not to use it.

  • The most popular meeting place for many generations of Warsaw residents and visitors. A place with a rich history, read about it!
  • 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
  • Good visible spot to meet with friends before hitting the pubs.
  • Cool
