➡MONDAY 20TH FEBRUARY PALACE OF CULTURE AND SCIENCE & WARSAW MEETING⬅️
Usually one of the first things that come to our mind when we think of Poland is Palace of Culture and Science. No surprise, it’s the highest and the most famous building of Warsaw!

Later on, we will move to Patchwork Hostel in the city centre when you’ll have a chance to get to know some practical things about Poland and its capital city, taste our traditional food and get to know your new friends as we’re planning to do some integration games. We mustn't be without you!

Come with ESN to Wilanów Palace- the Royal Palace in Warsaw Wilanów district, baroque, built in the XVII century for King Jan III Sobieski and Maria Kazimiera designed by Augustine Locci. Not only its beautiful architecture is the reason why we’re bringing you there, we will attend a special event in the Palace which is MAPPING. It is a 3D show which combines light, image and sound displayed on the facade of the building. It uses architectural elements to create the illusion of an animated building. No more words needed, you need to see this.
