This is a list of the tallest buildings in Poland. Buildings are ranked according to their architectural height. For other structures located in Poland see the list of tallest structures in Poland.

The first non-sacral high-rise buildings in Poland started to be constructed in Warsaw, Katowice, Łódź and Wrocław (then German Breslau) in the first half of the 20th century. Notable examples include the PAST Building and Prudential in Warsaw as well as Drapacz Chmur in Katowice. In the 1930s, new high-rise buildings were constructed in Kraków (Feniks House), Katowice (DPSTNZ Building) and Chorzów (Bank of Poland Building). Historically, the title of the tallest building in Poland since the Middle Ages up until the 18th century was held by the more than 100-metre tall Mary Magdalene Collegiate Church in Poznań (Polish: Kolegiata św. Marii Magdaleny w Poznaniu), which collapsed in 1780 as a result of a fire. Currently, the oldest building in Poland exceeding 100 metres is the St. Stanislaus and St. Wenceslaus Cathedral in Świdnica, Lower Silesia, built in 1565. The tallest sacral building in the country is the Basilica of Our Lady of Licheń whose bell tower measures 141.5 metres, making it one of the tallest churches in the world. The tallest building by architectural height is the 310-metre tall Varso Tower.
