What You Can Expect
First stop is the Palace of Culture and Science (the PKin building), a hulking Stalinist skyscraper from where the Polish communist party once ruled. Eternally unpopular with the Poles, the building is nicknamed the ‘elephant in lacy underwear,’ a tongue-in-cheek moniker that attests to its size and fancy architecture. Learn about Warsaw during the communist days, and then stop for a beer in a local microbrewery to get your first taste of Warsaw’s burgeoning night scene.
Board your fire engine again, and travel to southern Warsaw, home to the boldest architecture from the communist days. See vast squares and wide streets, lit up by night, while learning about the Belle Epoque architecture that characterized the city before World War II and the onset of communism. Stop in a bar for a shot of Polish vodka washed down with a herring (in true local fashion!), and then travel to the neighborhood of Praga.
An edgy district, full of bohemian character, Praga is one of the few Warsaw districts to remain unscathed by the Nazi devastation of WWII. Explore its off-the-beaten-path lanes and courtyards, seeing lively cafés spilling out in the streets, and then head inside one of Warsaw’s coolest bars. Down a shot of Polish vodka and chat with your guide about the city, hearing insider tips about places to visit and sites to see. Your tour finishes with a drop-off back at your Warsaw hotel.
One of the highlights of my trip. Our guide Martin was very knowledgeable and gave a great feel for the city and its history . . . and of course was a lot of FUN! I would definitely do another tour with this group.
Very nice tour, but not by fire engine but by an old police car. the driver was super!!!!
