Geocache Description:



Tzw. PASTa to najstarszy warszawski wysokościowiec, zaprojektowany przez Bronisława Brochwicz-Rogoyskiego i wybudowany w latach 1907-1910 (1906-1908 według Wikipedii). Jego wysokość całkowita wynosi ok. 55 m (11 kondygnacji). Nazwa budynku pochodzi od nazwy instytucji, która miała w nim siedzibę od 1922 r. – Polskiej Akcyjnej Spółki Telefonicznej. Do 1934 r. był on najwyższym budynkiem w Polsce. Podczas powstania warszawskiego toczyła się o niego zacięta walka, zakończona przejęciem gmachu przez powstańców. W 2000 r. budynek przekazano środowiskom kombatanckim; obecnie mieści się w nim m.in. Światowy Związek Żołnierzy Armii Krajowej.

PASTa is the oldest high-rise building in Warsaw. It was designed by Bronislaw Brochwicz-Rogoyski. Its construction started in 1907 and was completed in 1910 (according to Wikipedia: 1906-1908). The height of the building is about 55 m (11 floors). Since 1922 it was the main headquarters of the Polish Telephone Joint-stock Company – the abbreviated name of this institution is currently used also as the name of the building. Until 1934 it was the tallest “skyscraper” in Poland. During the Warsaw Uprising the building was captured by Polish insurgents following a long fight. Since 2000 PASTa has been housing the World Union of the Home Army Veterans.
