There are countless reasons to fall in love with Warsaw

Praga District

Family entertainment & sports

PGE National Stadium
ul. Ks. J. Poniatowskiego 1

Super-modern, largest stadium in Poland built for purposes of the UEFA EURO 2012™ Championships. Football matches and major events are held here: world-class stars’ concerts, international conferences, fairs and exhibitions, and sports events. Come winter, the Stadium morphs into Poland’s biggest “Wintertown”, complete with three skating rinks, ice hill, a curling track, and the largest indoor Skatepark in Warsaw. (fot. Filip Kwiatkowski)

Zoological Garden

ul. Ratuszowa 1/3, tel. +48 22 619 40 41

Opened in 1928, in the northern part of Praski Park. During World War II it was completely destroyed and re-opened in 1948. Today it is inhabited by over 3,500 animals representing nearly 500 species, but its real attraction are the brown bears, whose paddock is located outside the garden and zoo walls. More information

The area is also home to the Frenzied Star Villa (willa „Pod Zwariowaną Gwiazdą”) – a modernistic house where Jan Żabiński, director of the Zoo at the time, and his wife sheltered Jews during World War Two. The interior has been restored to reclaim the atmosphere and touch of the 1930s, family memorabilia having survived.

Pomnik Kapeli Praskiej

Monument of Praga's Backyard Orchestra (Pomnik Praskiej Kapeli Podwórkowej)

ul. Floriańska/ul. Kłopotowskiego

Revealed in 2006, this monument presents a neighbourhood band from the days when such musicians roamed the courtyards of Warsaw, especially in the Praga neighbourhood, and played popular Warsaw tunes. In the band are a violinist, accordion player, guitarist, banjo player, and a drummer. A small square with benches surrounds the monument, where one can take a rest. (fot. Tomasz Nowak)

Park Praski
ul. Ratuszowa

A key entertainment venue east of the Vistula River. Also home to the popular “teddies” – brown bear enclosure opened in 1952 and to the giraffe sculpture founded in 1981 by the Warsaw Zoo as a gift to young Varsavians. (fot. Łukasz Kopeć)

Skaryszewski Park
ul. Zieleniecka, Waszyngtona, Międzynarodowa
