Praga Walking Tour
Come and see the most shady side of Warsaw.
Located on the eastern bank of the Vistula River, the Praga District was the least destroyed by enemy activity in World War II. Consequently, the area has cultivated its own culture, spirit, dialect (lingo), the style of being, isolated by the river.
Some people say it’s dangerous, but over the past decade Praga has partly shaken off its shady image to become a „bohemian quarter”. It has become extremely popular with artists, who have flocked in to set up their studios, art galleries, theatres and art centres.
– Stroll in the oldest part of Praga
– The Praga catholic cathedral
– The orthodox cathedral
– Jewish heritage: old ritual bathhouse, former Jewish dormitory, former Jewish orphanage, pre-war Jewish prayer room
– Koneser and Soho – once large industrial complexes, today transformed into hubs for business creativity, start-ups, fashion, modern design and hipsters life
– Brzeska, once the most dangerous street in the city… is it still?
– Local bar to try local food
– Wedel factory, where we`ll try the oldest and most popular chocolate in Poland
– Wild river bank with natural, sandy beaches (every summer, it`s the most popular leisure and fun zone in the city)
It is a walking tour, given the proximity of the sites to each other and the structure of streets in this area. Many sites are located in alleyways or courtyards not easily accessible by car in any way.
