This tour shows a different face of Warsaw, the authentic and legendary district of Praga. Located on the right bank of the Vistula, just a few minutes from the Old Town, Praga differs significantly from the left side of Warsaw. Over the centuries this part of Warsaw was characterized by trade and industry and was a melting pot of cultures, where the Christians, Jews and Orthodox lived side by side. During this 2-hour walking tour, you will explore the streets of pre-war Warsaw including tenement houses with bullet holes, as well as grey apartment blocks from the communist time and the industrial post-industrial zones. These buildings now home art galleries, boutique designers and restaurants. You will hear about the best known entrepreneurs who helped make Praga the major trading hub in the pre-war time, and later on during the communist time to a symbol of free trade. You will also hear the authentic history about the director of the Warsaw Zoo and his wife, who helped save hundreds of Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto. Take a look at St. Florian Cathedral, the orthodox church (former place of the synagogue and the ritual bath), the Rozycki Bazaar, the monument of the Praga Street Band and the complex of the vodka factory “Koneser”, all with your local expert guide.

Professional and highly interesting leadership

The overall picture of Warsaw also includes a guided tour and thus getting to know Praga. Here, too, a very committed and pleasant tour guide with a very good knowledge of German, who showed us this side of Warsaw, i.e. Praga. Is very recommendable, not (only) on the usual tourist trails. You can see the problems and efforts of the city to change / improve the living situation.

A really great experience! Lucas took us around the city and told us much about the history of the different places. He was funny and flexible as we were a private group, and he didn’t mind going if the usually route. Would definitely recommend.

The Praga district is as interesting as other corners of Warsaw. A guided tour is recommended because you will learn a lot of interesting things from an experienced guide that you would not discover on your own.

Our guide Lukas showed us a lot of Warsaw in a short time. He spoke perfect english and knew a lot about the highlights he showed us. If you want a guide in Warsaw ask for Lukas.

Very informative and many aspects in detail.

A comprehensive overview of the historical and cultural-historical / sociological significance of the district was given. Highly recommended.
