Venue

The Staszic Palace in Warsaw is the seat of the Polish Academy of Sciences. Therefore, it was intentionally selected as the “Unipress 50” Anniversary Symposium location. Importantly, this year the Academy also celebrates its 70th Anniversary.

The history of the Staszic Palace is described and illustrated with paintings and photographs on the Staszic Palace webpage.

Our Symposium will be held in the largest conference hall in the Palace, the Hall of Mirrors.

The view looking out of the Hall of Mirrors window of the Staszic Palace towards Krakowskie Przedmieście Street is one of the most popular shots of Warsaw. The perspective towards the Royal Castle from a point located here is a look known from paintings by Canaletto.

Note that at the floor of the Nicolaus Copernicus monument, the sculptor Antoni Grabowski placed the model of the Solar System taken from Copernicus’ work “On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres” (2007).
