I thought it will be a cool place with old and original houses but not really, just and old and not the safest area. There were some really cool houses, but only a few, so I... read more

I thought it will be a cool place with old and original houses but not really, just and old and not the safest area. There were some really cool houses, but only a few, so I didn't know what should I see and visit. There were peple who lived in the old buildings and didn't look like friendly so I... More

We went by the metro, and had a long walk around the streets of Praga. We visited a gipsy marked, a kebab cafe and a cathedral. IT was an interesting visit with old and new and newly renovated buildings side by side.

We visited this hole during the day. The atmosphere was awkward, dangerous and uncomfortable. I am not the type of person easily scared, but I know a bad area when I see one as I grown up in a very dodgy part of Sydney. We wanted to visit due to its reputation of being up and coming, arty and cool.... More

Went to Praga on the last day of our trip in Warsaw. Went on the route suggested in our information guide. Visited the cathedral, the Market,70s pub, Russian Orhodox church and sets for The Pianist . Really enjoyed and felt at ease. Life here during the DAY goes on as normal. Definitely added extra to our Warsaw trip

I live there because it is the cheapest part of Warsaw with pretty good transport to the Old Market Square/City Center. If you want to visit this area I can recommend you a very nice place, get off the tram at "Park Praski" train stop and walk in the church and praski park area, Sierakowskiego, Okrzei and Floriańska steet, then...

I went on a Sunday. Nothing really going on but I went to see some of the purported fine pre war architecture. To be honest my experience was nothing more than a working class and in places very run down neighbourhood. It's close proximity to the old town and good links to Centrum mean this area has potential. This is... More

We actually stayed in Hetman hotel located in Praga so we had some nice walks around neighborhood. Unlike most of the Warsaw, Praga actually has the real old buildings preserved.. They are actually in a pretty miserable condition, but they are there. I love the Orthodox Church in there!

Zabkowska, Targowa and the surroundings are really worth a while. You can see pieces of old Warsaw, beautiful Praga Cathedral, the ZOO, the Orthodox Church. Near the Cathedral you will find the best Lebanese restaurant in Warsaw - Le Cedre which I totally recommend. At the corner of Jagiellonska and Klopotowskiego you will find good pubs: Bazar and Centrum Zarządzania... More

Our guide book said that tourists rarely visited Praga District owing to its poor reputation, but that as it's now in the process of gentrification it's worth a look. So we caught a bus from the Centre and got off near the National Stadium. Certainly you notice right away not only the architectural differences but the general ambience as well.... More
