ABOUT WARSAW IN A NUTSHELL
Our Warsaw in a nutshell tour includes travelling in an old-school minibus “Zuk” as well as walking with your private guide. You’ll either be picked up from your hotel in the city centre or meet with your guide at the meeting point.
Firstly, you’ll explore Warsaw’s Old Town, where one can find the most prominent landmarks and enjoy beautiful architecture. One if the most important objects of the area is the Warsaw Royal CastIe – an impressive, XIII-century headquarters of Polish kings. It is located at the Castle Square, right next to famous 22-meters high Sigismund’s Column – a memorial of a pious and artistically inclined Polish king. St. John’s Cathedral, located around the corner, is another object of special importance for Polish history and one of the UNESCO heritage sites. It’s a place where royal vows, coronations of two kings, burials of numerous famous figures and even Polish Constitution resolution ceremony took place.
Then, you’ll visit Prague district, that by many is regarded as the most interesting and original part of Warsaw. Walking among Prague’s charming streets you’ll discover its artistic atmosphere that expresses itself in shabby tenements, murals, live music, hidden alleys and intriguing bars or cafes. Prague is full of artists, bohemians, hippies and hipsters which gives the area an inimitable spirit!
The last part of the tour is focused on the communist era in the city. Our guide will take care of presenting you with the history in the most engaging way. You’ll see substantial monuments and places marked by the era of censorship and by quite characteristic architectural taste of the communist government.
In the meantime you’ll hear fascinating stories about Warsaw – from its cradle to the XXI century. You’re more than welcome to ask any questions to our guide, who will willingly answer and discuss with you on any historical subject.
