Smolna 8 – Block of Flats

A 19-storey residential tower with 140 apartments and a rooftop restaurant, designed by outstanding Polish architects Jan Bogusławski and Bohdan Gniewiewski, constructed between 1964-1976.

In the beginning it was supposed to be a hotel – an isolated place of stay for Polish people living abroad. Apartments could be purchased only by US dollars. In the end it became a higher class residential building for Pols who decided to come back to Poland, and for people who knew the right people.

It stands right on the edge of the Warsaw Escarpment – a few kilometers hill where the city developed over the centuries.

Address: Smolna 8 Street
