There are countless reasons to fall in love with Warsaw

Praga District

Bazylika Najświętszego Serca JezusowegoBasilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (Bazylika Najświętszego Serca Jezusowego)
ul. Kawęczyńska 53
www.bazylika.salezjanie.pl

Built in the early 20th century, this is one of the most impressive religious buildings in the capital. In 1923, Pope Pius XI consecrated the temple and gave it the title of the Minor Basilica. The architecture of the temple is modeled on the Roman basilica of St. Paul. In the soaring belfry (built in the 1990s) there is a bell from 1712.

 

 

The Courtyard Chapels

Most of the one hundred historical chapellettes are concealed in the courtyards and gateways of the Praga district. Erected in times of the Nazi occupation and Warsaw Rising, they stood in for bombed churches. The most valuable one of all is over one hundred years old and depicts a Madonna with Child. It stands at the intersection of Ząbkowska and Korsaka streets.

 

 

11 Listopada Street (11th November street)

A major artery of the district, thus named on the third anniversary of Poland regaining her independence, i.e. on November 11th of November 1921.

 

 

 

ul. 11 Listopada 22
This is the major clubbing centre of Warsaw’s right bank, and well worth a visit, especially on weekend evenings. The courtyard at this address is home to some of the city’s best clubs, popular with both locals and tourists. Each of them is distinguished by its own unique atmosphere and an original name: Hydrozagadka (www.hydrozagadka.waw.pl), Skład Butelek (www.skladbutelek.pl) and Chmury (www.facebook.com/kawiarniachmury). The vibe presented by Praga's old town houses will surely attract those on the lookout for fun. Also home to Hostel Fabryka, (ul. 11 Listopada 22/21) organised in a tenement house – rubber product factory before World War Two: www.hostelfabryka.pl
The buildings surrounding the courtyard include, among others, workshops for young artists, Akademia theatre (www.teatracademia.eu) and Klatka gallery (www.studioklatka.org)
