Iglica, the Needle Aug 02, 2014
The Needle in front of Hala Stulecia is a post-war addition. In 1948 an exhibition with political intentions took place in the now Polish city; it presented the „re-acquired territories“ and the three years of rebuilding since the end of the war. Its symbol was the steel needle, originally surrounded by three arches. Its total height is 96 metres - originally it was even 10 metres more but the top was damaged in a thunderstorm soon after its completion. Together with the huge dome of Hala Stulecia, the Needle has become a landmark in the eastern parts of the cityscape.
