Beginning of July 2016, ANPOL executed Renovation of the facade of the building of the Ministry of Finance at ul. Świętokrzyska 12 in Warsaw.
History: The building is located in the quarter of Świętokrzyska, Czackiego, Traugutta and Krakowskie Przedmieście streets, it is an example of socialist realist architecture. In 2012, it was entered in the register of monuments. It has been the ministerial seat continuously since its foundation. The architecture combines the features of modernism with the canons of the socialist realism style, with the simultaneous use of palace assumptions of the Renaissance and Baroque periods.
