Off the Beaten Path
A trip organized in the old communist van “Nysa 522”. You can see places that usually are non-tourist areas, such as: the remains of the Communism (Constitution Square, Palace of Science and Culture), pre-war Warsaw (streets which survived World War II), Jewish Ghetto and the bohemian Praga district. The first area that we will visit is the city centre where you can see the streets that survived World War II, we will enter gates, courtyards, staircases. In many of those buildings you can still find bullet holes from the times of the Warsaw Rising. Here we will try to show you the atmosphere of the Old Warsaw. We will also stop in the last street of the Jewish Ghetto, where you will touch the part of Warsaw that doesn’t exist anymore. After that we will move to the communist world to show you the post-war ideas. You will see the way in which the communists rebuilt the city with a huge doze of propaganda. We will see the Constitution Square, Party House, Palace of Culture and Science. Our next stop will be the bohemian Praga district. Praga survived the war, but it used to be a forgotten and dangerous part of the city. Recently, however, artists have moved here and they have changed this district a lot. Here we will show you the atmosphere of the local streets, old market, former vodka factory. We will stop for a traditional Polish aperitif, a shot of vodka, bread, lard and pickles in one of the typically bohemian bars. We will finish our trip with lunch in a milk bar which used to be popular in the Communist times, where we will try the typical Polish cuisine. We will pick you up and drop you off at the hotel.
