Virtual Earth map of Iglica (The Spire)

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


Iglica (Polish; means "the spire") is a needle-like monument in Wroclaw, Poland. It was built in 1948 and was 106 metre tall (now, after renovation, highest ten meters were removed, and it is 96 m).

This structure was constructed by Polish Communists for an exhibition to celebrate the occupation of former eastern provinces of Germany, so called "recovered lands". The Iglica is located very close to the Centennial Hall, the spectacular building constructed by Germans in 1912 and its purpose was to move the centre of attention from the Centennial Hall to Iglica.
