Praga guide

You just have to visit Praga which is located on the other bank of the Vistula River. No doubt about it. Firstly, because of the climate of prewar Warsaw as this part of the city did not suffer many losses. Secondly, because of its residents and the youngsters who are continually changing the image of the district which has been neglected over the recent years.

Your metro stop is Dworzec Wileński and the moment you get there you will see the change. Just stroll the streets, backyards with shrines, service points, factories and local bars. Here are some of our recommendations:

MUSEUMS
PRAGA MUSEUM OF WARSAW (Targowa St 50/52) will be an excellent introduction to learn something more about Praga. Here you will see exhibitions dedicated to contemporary times and the history of this district. From a roof, you will have a chance to admire the view on Old Praga and the Różycki Bazaar.
The youngest museum in Praga is the POLISH VODKA MUSEUM, which was opened on the premises of a former factory of Koneser vodkas (Ząbkowska St 27/31) in a building from the 19th century. This is a place which is right now undergoing a tremendous transformation (Google campus has its headquarters). Here you will feel the wind of change.

STREET ART
Street art is one of many ways you can explore Praga. Street artists like its harsh climate and leave really capturing works here. Our recommendations:
– Sebas Velasco’s mural, Strzelecka St 26
– “Fight Club” Conor Harrington’s mural, Środkowa St 17
– 1010’s mural, Mackiewicza St 1
– Zbiok’s mural, Tadeusza Korsaka St 7
– Diegomiedo’s mural, Brzeska St 14a

DESIGN AND FASHION
Praga is also a vintage design centre. There are more traditional markets, for example, Namysłowska or Różyckiego and modern ones like ZOO Market (Solidarności St 55). There is a boutique of Gosia Baczyńska, a renowned fashion designer, on Floriańska Street 6. Not to mention various shops with vintage glassware, porcelain, furniture.

RELAX
Take a break from traffic on Open Ząbkowska which in the summertime transforms into boulevards. By a thorn house you will feel like in a sanatorium (Hallera Square).

There is a perfect city view.
