Pałac Kultury i Nauki, Warsaw

The Palace of Culture and Science was built in Warsaw by the Russians some 60 years ago. The building was originally known as the Joseph Stalin Palace of Culture and Science, but in the wake of destalinization Stalin's name was removed from the interior lobby and one of the building's sculptures. The building was a gift from the Soviet Union to the people of Poland. The architecture of the building is closely related to several similar skyscrapers built in the Soviet Union of the same era, most notably the Moscow State University. However, the main architect Lev Rudnev incorporated some Polish architectural details into the project by traveling around Poland and seeing the architecture.

Recently, there has been a lot of discussion whether to keep it or pull it down since it's rather bizzare communist grandeur type of architecture. Finally it has been decided to keep the building, part of the city's history as it was.
