What You Can Expect
Your guide will explain how this area, located along the Vistula River, was once home to the poorest people in the city and was wrought with criminals. In recent years, though, it has blossomed into one of Europe's creative capitals; renovated factories and warehouses are now the favorite haunts of artists. As you explore Praga, you’ll see bars, clubs, galleries and restaurants that have transformed these back alleys into a popular tourist destination.
Next, visit beautiful Lazienki Park and learn how this former hunting ground was converted by King Stanislaw August Poniatowski into a park in 1764. Take a stroll here and see the palace and amphitheater, the Chopin statue and the neoclassic Palace on the Water, the former residence of the king.
Continue walking down the Royal Route to the city’s historic center, Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Admire the quaint atmosphere and medieval architecture as you saunter down cobblestone streets to Old Town Market Place, full of traditional Polish restaurants, cafés and shops.
You’ll then have free time to explore on your own. Your guide will provide you with a map of the city to help you get around. One of the many great attractions you can see is the Royal Castle, the official residence of the Polish monarchs.
After meeting back up with your guide, you’ll be driven to the train station for your return journey to Krakow, where you’ll be picked up and taken back to your hotel.
The guides were wonderful but because of very cold weather we left early
I hesitate to give this tour a 2-star rating because I don't want it to reflect negatively on the guides who were extremely prompt, very efficient, and well informed. The logistical services were great. However, the tour was represented to be a "small-group" with no more than 10 people and there were, in fact, 20/21 people in the tour group when we arrived in Warsaw. Also, the 3-hour train ride described in the trip details was, in fact, a 5-hour, multi-stop train ride on the return to Krakow. We enjoyed spending the day in Warsaw, but the trip details were not what Viator represented them to be.
