Why locals love it

The main edifice of the Technical University in Warsaw is a great example of the amazing architecture at the end of 19th century (where Warsaw was called "Paris of the East"). It was destroyed during the war but it shines again, being one of the most beautiful yet unappreciated buildings in the city.

Why you should visit it

The interior of this place is simply stunning! I keep wondering how students can learn in such an amazing surrounding. It really looks like Harry Potter's Hogwarts, only in the lighter colors. This is probably one of the best hidden gems of Warsaw.

Special tip

just enter the building and go straight ahead - that's where the beauty waits for you!
