The hottest of the East European hot spots
Warsaw has changed a lot since the fall of the Soviet bloc – the city swanks a dazzling skyline of skyscrapers and luxury hotels that shade the gloomy communist architecture which still stands. The Old Town, which was rebuild after WWII, is now a thriving center of cultural significance. Warsaw is an important scene for fashionistas too, with chic boutiques and luxury shopping. The cuisine is exquisite – a mix of Polish, Russian, Lithuanian, German and Jewish influences.
Museum of Technology (Muzeum Techniki)
The Museum of Technology (Muzeum Techniki) was established in 1955 at the Palace of Culture and Science (Pałac Kultury i Nauki) to illustrate the development of technology since its historical beginnings to the modern day.
On display at the Museum of Technology (Muzeum Techniki) there are collections of vehicles, exhibitions dedicated to computers, radio transistors, music mechanisms, printing, astronautical engineering and much more. Attractions include a planetarium and the German coding machine from World War II known as Enigma.
