Discover the cultural richness of Warsaw’s Praga district with a licensed guide and native Varsovian of several generations. Praga, just across the Vistula river from Warsaw’s old town, has a centuries old history and escaped major devastation during World War II. Originally founded as an independent town, Praga traditionally served as the multicultural home for Catholics, Jews, and Orthodox Christians. Today Praga is experiencing its renaissance and is well regarded for its artists and craftsmen, alternative culture, and interesting real estate projects. Praga is often overlooked by foreign visitors, and locals, but it offers a special vibe and charm while walking its streets among locals who have been living here for many generations.
