2012 ICPC Opening Ceremonies

The Palace of Culture and Science

You can make out the huge ICPC banner on the side of the Palace! (click for a larger photo).

The Palace is the tallest building in Poland. This is where the Opening Ceremonies were held last night – you can already tell they were amazing!

As they say, let the show begin!

Good luck to all the contestants!
