The Modern Centre

Interesting
Built around the Palace of Culture and Science, Warsaw's commercial and economic hub is a somewhat unsettling mix of skyscrapers and futurist structures lining wide Stalinist-style avenues. Added to this mix are an assortment of luxury boutiques and hotels, blocks of flats from the Communist era and an array of smaller shops and stalls that have popped up in this district.
