What to expect

Experience a fascinating history of Warsaw, Polish culture and nowadays life on this 4 hours off the beaten tourist path tour. With the help of a communist retro minibus, your guide will take you through less known and much more interesting and eye-opening sites than typical tours cover. This small-group tour features places related to World War II, communism era and the Praga district, with interesting stories and anecdotes. Local Polish snacks (it’s a daily choice) are included in the tour price. Get to know the “real” Warsaw.

Since the tour is called “Behind the Scenes” you will experience less touristy parts of our city. The tour will start with the remains of the pre-WWII city centre of Warsaw. Lovely facades but... small and dark courtyards. Compared to communist made blocks of flats, which do you think is better? Feel free to discuss it with your guide.

Two city uprisings during WWII ended up in the almost complete destruction of our city (85% of it was gone) and the communist regime, which settled up in 1945, had a serious task to cope with: the reconstruction of Poland’s capital city. What’s more, since it seemed to be the only chance ever, architects decided to remodel the city and make it a much more comfortable place to live and work. On the other hand, the communist party wanted to convert Warsaw into a model Soviet-style city, with monumental buildings filled with happy proletariat. Did they succeded? Let’s check it on this tour.

The next part is the enigmatic Praga district, located on the Eastern side of the Vistula river. Once forgotten, nowadays it has become a hip and artistic piece still unaffected by commercial tourism. On the way back to the city centre you will see some interesting buildings like the National Stadium, the National Museum and hear stories about them: did you know that you can find a palm tree in Warsaw? After 4-4,5 hours our guide will drop you off back in your hotel or in the city centre if you wish to.
