The Centennial Hall
At the beginning of the 20th century, when Wroclaw was part of the German Empire, architect Max Berg designed this huge multi-functional building aimed to serve as a place for exhibitions, concerts, and sports events. At the time of the building, it was the most significant construction made of reinforced concrete, with a vast 23m-high dome.
The hall is still active and uses for sporting events, concerts and exhibition. When I visited, it served a cats' exhibition. I made a mistake, and bought a ticket to the exhibition, even though I had no intention to be a part of a cats' beauty contest. When you are buying a ticket to the small and interesting museum in the side of the building, they also let you get inside the gallery and look at the impressive dome. The museum is dedicated to the development of architecture, the history of the Centennial Hall and the way they built it. Very nice.
