ABOUT WWII WARSAW TOUR
Our WWI Warsaw Tour includes walking with a professional guide and driving in a retro minibus “Zuk”. You’ll meet with your guide in front of the Palace of Culture and Science in the city centre.
Our guide will introduce you to the begging of the war in Warsaw, when the Polish Underground State was created. Then, while visiting the site of the last fragment of Ghetto Wall, you’ll discover a grim story of the Jewish Ghetto, that existed in the city between 1940 and 1943.
Then, you’ll visit the historical Wielicow tenement house – partly destroyed building where a Jewish poet from the ghetto had his apartment. Next crucial object on your way will be the Bridge over Chlodna street, where you will find out why ghetto inhabitants used to call it “the bridge of sighs”.
Your guide will also show you the Church of St Augustine, the Monument to the Ghetto Heroes, the historical Mila 18 street and the infamous Umschlagplatz, from where Jews were being transported to concentration camps across the country.
You’ll also spent around 30 minutes in the 44 Warsaw Uprising Museum and visit the Polish Army Museum outdoor exhibition (only 10 am tours). At the end, you’ll drive to Praga district to see the area that remained relatively untouched by the war and today is one of the less tourist places in the city.
During the tour, our local guide will tell you some gripping stories about Nazi’s devastating invasion on Warsaw, infamous period of occupation, unrest of local Jewish and Polish resistance movements, legendary Warsaw Uprising and the Soviet army’s takeover of the city. Besides hearing stories about crucial figures, battles and monuments, you’ll also find out how Warsaw citizens’ life looked like during that dark period.
