Conducted by the Kraków-based firm Renovatorium, work has begun on restoring the Palace of Culture’s observation deck back to its original, sparkling white look. Set to continue until mid-September, the project will include a thorough clean of the façade, the first time such has happened for over 40 years. Visited annually by over 650,000 people, the 30th floor viewing platform has come to be regarded as one of Warsaw’s essential tourist draws.
Now, scheduled work won’t just include a meticulous steam clean of the stonework, but also cosmetic changes to the window sills and the careful restoration of associated plaster work and ceiling details. While the plans do not involve PKiN’s other floors, looking into the long-term the building’s management are widely expected to sanction a full zł. 30 million revamp should the current scheme be executed successfully.
