About

There is Warsaw you know. The Old Town, the modern centre, rich shops, and restaurants. But there is also another side. Neglected, dark, and forbidden. Are you ready to play Alice in Wonderland and adventure into the unknown? Let us take you to Praga, the thrilling right bank district of Warsaw.


For many years, the other side of the river was a separate city. Some would say the two sides of Warsaw are still completely different worlds. The architecture of Praga stands out from the rest of the city as it was mostly unharmed during the Second World War. For decades it was considered a no-go zone in Warsaw. Today, things have changed.


With our guides, you will see the multicultural and alternative Praga. Catholic, Orthodox, and Jewish places of worship standing next to each other, dilapidated buildings and backyards, street art, and street trade. The so-called “Hollywood ghetto”, an area so run down that it could be used as a set in a Holocaust movie almost with no scenography. The only wild bank of a big European river, the bears (yes, bears), and much, much more! Are you ready to follow the white rabbit?


During this tour you will see:



· the infamous Praga district

· architecture that survived WWII

· courtyard shrines and places of worship

· the heart of Old Praga
