A friendly, informative and in-depth view of the history of Warsaw, taking in the the very modern and the not so modern at street level.
The kind of tours I prefer, walking around from street to street reeling in the local history, all the nooks and crannies, the side streets and the hidden but important stories that one not might get otherwise. Noticing how Warsaw is a city where the very modern (high rise skyscrapers) lie side by side the very old (old apartment blocks of the 60s and 70s) and the even older (remnants of buildings from the war period)
Marcin's tour was relaxed, with lots of good information and facts about sites and areas of historical significance...... from the the time the Rolling Stones played in Soviet Warsaw, the street history of the Warsaw uprising, and a look at the some of the remains of the Warsaw Ghetto, amongst a raft of things to see and experience.
Afterwards, we had some local dishes, where we sampled the best of Polish cuisine - yes, and that includes pirogi! ha
Recommended if one wants a more personal and grounded view of the real history of the magnificent city of Warsaw.
