2) The city is divided: Berlin 1964. A Stereoscopic Exposition
Contrary to most of Fuhrmann’s machines, which disappeared with the advent of cinema, the Warsaw Fotoplastikon has been clanking in the same place until today, making it the oldest operating stereoscopic theater still in its original location (it’s there since 1905).
In this exhibition, you can investigate details of everyday Berlin in the 60s, where two worlds were so close to each other, yet so different.

Particularly amusing could be the “Simultaneous Pyzy eating” at Pyzy Flaki Gorące (February 10 @ 11:00 – ul. Brzeska 29/31), which is undoubtedly the best place in the city to eat Pyzy.
