I was surprised of great exhibition in these premises - I awaited just some empty hall but it was stunning. You feel the history, the Solidarity atmosphere, you can imagine how the history happened. I must recommend the cafe too.

I visited a conference held in the ECS, which is the acronym of the real name of this place. Very good venue indeed, but their catering could step up. For a conference there are a large auditorium and several rooms for seminars or workshops. The...More
