Description

The guide meets you at your hotel and invites you to the unique car - Żuk, the Polish retro minibus. The Old Town is an excellent start to discovering Warsaw. On the walk, you see Castle Square, where the story of Warsaw started more than 700 years ago. The king who believed to have both Polish and Swedish thrones, old trade paths and signs of German gothic era settlers. There is so much to find! As the walk continues, you discover the gothic Cathedral, narrow side streets filled with tenement houses, a viewing point at the old riverside, and finally, you reach the Market Square. Colourful and prestigious tenement houses filled with restaurants surround the square: it’s an excellent place to slow down, take a breath and investigate the story of the Warsaw mermaid. If you’re lucky enough, you will meet a Warsaw’s barrel organ player and listen to (very) old top hits. On the way back to Żuk minibus guide shows you the remaining parts of the original city walls and tells you the story of the post-WWII reconstruction of Warsaw Old Town. The next part is the enigmatic Praga district, located on the Eastern side of the Vistula river. When the minibus crosses the river, one can see picturesque views of the wild riverside. Praga is the only district of Warsaw that survived the apocalypse of WWII - that's why it represents the picture of the pre-WWII city filled with belle-epoque buildings with small and noisy courtyards. Once neglected, it becomes a hip and artistic part of Warsaw, still not affected by commercial tourism. Back in the central district, your Żuk minibus parks near ex Polish Communist Party headquarters. This regime settled up in 1945 and had a challenging task to cope with - reconstructing Poland's capital city. What's more, since it seemed to be the only chance ever in time, architects decided to remodel Warsaw and make it a more comfortable place to live and work. But unfortunately, they had to cope with the Party, which opted for a Soviet-style city filled with overwhelming buildings and a happy proletariat. Did they make a compromise? Let's check it out!
