Fotoplastikon

Fotoplastikon? What is it exactly? Well, it is a large wooden drum-like thing where, through viewing holes visitors can watch changing 3D images. Scenes are arranged by themes, such as a travelogue to distant lands or depictions of historic events. Recorded music related to the theme plays in the background. Each show lasts 20 minutes.

The Warsaw Fotoplatikon operates at the same location since 1905 and it is the oldest stereoscopic theatre in Europe. A visit here is like a trip back in time. The Fotoplastikon archives have 3000 original photographs from around the globe, starting with photos documenting the opening of the Suez Canal, through to expeditions to Spitzbergen, an unknown side of Japan, and of course, old images of Warsaw.
