Panorama of the Battle of Raclawice - this huge (15x114m) painting is an impressive relic of the 19th-century mass culture. The panorama stands in a circular fashion and, with the viewer in the center, presents different scenes at various viewing angles. It "transfers" the viewer into a different time and reality by combining a special kind of perspective with technical effects such as lighting, artificial terrain and the dark passage to the viewing platform. The project was conceived as a patriotic manifestation commemorating the 100th anniversary of the victorious Battle of Raclawice, a famous episode of the Kosciuszko insurrection, a heroic but fallen attempt to defend Polish independence. Tours and headphones in various languages are available. For ticket prices and operating hours details see Panorama's web site.
