The first thing that immediately catches the eye is of course the Palace of Culture and Science. The gigantic Stalin's machine is visible from almost anywhere in the city. And surprisingly that when so far it certainly visible that the building is very high but when coming closer you start to realize how really huge it is.
This is not just a skyscraper it’s a huge giant towering over the city like an immense termitary raising over the grass nailed to the ground.
Warsaw is trying to hide it among other skyscrapers but how such a giant can get lost among these smooth glass columns. Depersonalized they on the contrary only emphasize the silent superiority of this coarse carcass.
The city itself is like a multi-colored mosaic strip of between the gray land and almost pure white sky. Houses with their last strength are trying to keep their colors under the pressure of the white giant. The old town this line laid with smalt of all shades of rust is succeeding. Its walls are still juicy from the history flowing inside of them. At this time the main part of the city surrenders to the mercy of a colorless dome. Its facades are fading slowly eroded in all shades of precious porcelain.
Have a good day, MarrySav!)
