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!

I find tripadvisor to be annoying at times with some of it's stupid listings. Every neighbourhood in my old town of New York seems to be an attraction instead of a place that you happen to come across or go there to see something specific which is what a tourist does. Whenever anyone says that a place is bohemian, trendy... More

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

A recommended trip to get a different feel of Warsaw. A nice walk from the Old Town, across 'Most Stasko Dabrowska' to view the resplendent 'St. Michaels and Florian the Martyr's' Cathedral. The "playing" 'Backyard Orchestra' statue is a good view. My now favourite Warsaw Church (of Our Lady of Lareto). The old city, Zabkowska street, the old Vodka factory... More

Praga is my favourite part of Warsaw. Least damaged during the last war it still retains some charm and atmosphere (contrary to the fully rebuilt Old Town). It still retains many pre-war architecture. It has ZOO. It has wild river bank from where you can enjoy beautiful views of the Old Town. The St. Florian Cathedral... If you wish to... More

'A bohemian atmosphere', 'charming and unique' - yes, especially if you like drunkards singing with uneven voices, 'artists' in 'trendy' cafes being simply drug-addicted, numbminded loafers, and 'unique experience' means you can simply get hit in the back of your head in some side street. All right, it has some (moderately) interesting architectonical attractions, but generally it is better to... More

Praga , over the river from the main city , was much less damaged during the war , so much so that Roman Polanski used it as part of the backdrop to The Pianist as there were still buildings standing that were there in !945 . Our hotel receptionist recommended a trip across the river to see the bears in... More
