Palace of Ministers of the Treasury (Pałac Ministrów Skarbu) is located in Plac Bankowy in Warsaw. This building was built during 1825−1830. This palace belonged to the family of Ogiński. In September 1939, the building was bombed and burned . It was rebuilt in the years 1950-1954 under the direction of Peter Biegański. Today it serves as office for the Warsaw city administration.
In front of the palace you can see the Monument of Juliusz Slowacki, one of the famous Polish poet.
The following panorama depicts the Palace of Ministers of the Treasury viewing from another side of the square.
The first post and photo from this trip is the panoramic view from the window of an apartment we rented for the first 3 days of being in Warsaw. The apartment was located on the 5th floor of a large monumental building (I will post about that later). The window was pointed to the Warsaw business centre that can be seen on the photo.
The photo was made merging 3 images shot using the old lens for the film camera – Helios 44M 58mm f2.0. This lens is really goo if you study how to use it. It produces very clear and sharp image but loses some image contrast when direct light is in a frame.
And this is another panorama with view on Maidan Nezalexhnosti keeping whole square in the frame. The photos for this panorama were made from the bridge over the road just behind the square. There were 10 photos that were merged together later.
Maidan Nezalexhnosti or Independence Square is the main square of the capital of Ukraine – Kiev. It is usually called just Maidan (that means square from Ukrainian). This square was named as now in 1991. Before that it had many different names:
