Krakow Castle
Krakow viewed from a window of the castle.
Wilanow Palace, Warsaw.
Wilanow Palace: a view across the courtyard.
From the window of Wilanow Palace
One of many towers of Wilanow Palace, Warsaw
Royal Palace, Warsaw, totally destroyed in World War II,
rebuilt around 1980.
Palace in the park at night: where we heard a Mozart concert.
The Palace of Culture -- a gift from Stalin to the people of Warsaw in the 1950s.
What they really wanted was a subway. What Stalin really wanted was something visible.
Modern skyscrapers in the background: today's palaces?
