Not so touristic part of Warsaw

Really don't get it... why such a big fuss about a run down part of a city? Felt safe during the day - wouldn't recommend it after dawn... just a nice park, some buildings that didn't look safe to walk under (let alone live inside) and some interesting churches that really wouldn't justify the waste of time. Warsaw is a... More

We stayed here during our 3 day visit to Warsaw and really liked it. At first Praga seemed bit crappy with the old houses and some questionable hang-around persons, but actually it has really nice cafeterias and eateries and travelling to center is easy with the new metro line. For children there are several nice playgrounds in the parks and... More

Praga is the place to head for if you are looking for the indie and club night-life of Warsaw. Some great places to discover and very safe.

We stayed in the area as the hotel looked amazing...(Aparthotel Stalowa52)...it was! But a looonnnnggg walk to the city centre in freezing conditions (Jan visit) some amazing street art and graffiti...just keep your eyes open! Strangest/coolest bar visit- the hotel receptionist walked us a few doors down into what looked like a run down building with no signs, but was... 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
