There are countless reasons to fall in love with Warsaw

Praga District

Ząbkowska Street

One of the main streets of old Praga, the oldest buildings are from the 19th century. For many people this place is 'Praga's Old Town'. Walking along Ząbkowska we can see how the Praga's architecture evolved from the second half of the 19th century to now. The oldest surviving house on this street is a small ground-floor house (No. 14), which is from 1866. The house at No. 7 is from 1880 (though it has been restored)  and is considered by many to be the most beautiful house of Ząbkowska Street. At No. 2 there is one of the most recognisable buildings in Praga – it's a four-floor, renovated house, which belonged to Szejna and Tychoński, which dates from 1914.


Koneser - old vodka factory
ul. Ząbkowska 27/31
www.koneser.eu

This is a complex of red brick buildings from the late 19th century, in which, for over a hundred years, an alcohol factory was located. It is one of the most valuable examples of industrial architecture, as some of the buildings are inspired by Gothic influences (look at the front gate, which often makes visitors think of a castle with a small turret). Today, former distillery premises are occupied by Google Campus Warsaw. World’s first Polish Vodka Museum is to open in 2018. Until then, the spacious complex is to be transformed into a lifestyle centre complete with a hotel, restaurants, shops, offices, and a residential quarter.

 

The Angels of Praga 
ul. Ząbkowska/ul. Targowa

A group of fairytale figurines created by sculptor Marek Sułek in reference to the local guardian angel tradition. They become particularly curious in wintertime: each angel is given unique, tailor-made clothing and accessories.
