Description

Meet your guide outside the Palace of Culture and Science and board a retro Jelcz “cucumber” bus to take you to Praga district. Along the way, listen as your guide explains the district's captivating and sometimes scary past, passing by the marketplace where locals could buy anything from fake documents to AK-47s.

After crossing the Vistula River, you will arrive at your first stop of the day—a chocolate factory that's been producing sweet treats since the mid-19th century. Savor a rich cup of delectable drinking chocolate before continuing on with your tour.

Your next stop is in the once-industrial heart of Kamionek, which at various times produced everything from vodka to ammunition. Following the end of Communism in 1989, young artists began to move into the neighborhood and bring cultural revival along with them. The district is now a center for creativity, hosting art shows, live concerts, and fashion shows, as well as colorful street art and bustling flea markets.

Your tour ends with a drive through the area known as Praga's “Bermuda Triangle,” thanks to its once-soaring crime rate. Here, you can scope out pre-war architecture, moody courtyards, and colorful shrines that help maintain the area's Old Warsaw atmosphere before returning to the meeting point.

Travel away from the crowds to discover the lesser-known side of Warsaw—the formerly infamous Praga district that went forgotten for many years. See the sites that contributed to the area once being considered the most dangerous neighborhood in Warsaw, and the steps that led to its revival.

First we didn’t receive any confirmation from the tour agent about where to meet so we almost missed the bus when we were waiting on the other side of the meeting point. Second, there were two tour guides speaking different languages on the bus which is very annoying since the other guy speaking with the microphone so loudly as if he was talking to everyone. Our English guide spoke too soft and did not use a microphone. We spend almost an hour on the chocolate shop which was too long and wasted too much time. We also felt that we did not really off the beaten path because what we saw was all on the main road and was mostly well preserved. We didn’t go inside any courtyard like the other group did. The bus has no air conditioning so it was quite warm inside.
