There are countless reasons to fall in love with Warsaw

Praga District

Through the centuries, Warsaw's right-bank – the area called Praga – was an independent town, and it became formally attached to Warsaw only in the late 18th century. For years it was a secondary part of the city that survived the devastation of war, with three different religions (Catholicism, Orthodoxy and Judaism) peacefully co-existing. Today it is a fascinating district, overflowing with artistic studios, galleries, alternative theaters and underground clubs. Thanks to this infusion of cool culture, many of the surviving post-industrial buildings have been turned into cultural centres, cinemas, galleries and pubs. But it is also in Praga that we can find many streets which were undamaged during World War II, and so there are some beautiful pre-war lamp-posts, sidewalks and apartment blocks.

The most interesting places can be viewed through the windows of historical cars that were once used as regular vehicles in the city and now, beautifully restored, are true tourist attractions. One can get on board the cult Jelcz, a bus called the ‘cucumber’ because of its specific shape, or rent a Fiat 126p, the so-called maluch (meaning ‘little one’) to feel like one is travelling back in time.
