Itinerary Details

Operated by: Warsaw Behind the Scenes

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Old Town

Warsaw Old Town - it is one of the suggestions. The Old Town is an excellent start to discovering Warsaw. On the walk, you see Castle Square, where the story of Warsaw started more than 700 years ago. The king who believed to have both Polish and Swedish thrones, old trade paths and signs of German gothic era settlers. There is so much to find! As the walk continues, you discover the gothic Cathedral, narrow side streets filled with tenement houses, a viewing point at the old riverside, and finally, you reach the Market Square. Colourful and prestigious tenement houses with restaurants surround the square: it’s an excellent place to slow down, take a breath and investigate the story of the Warsaw mermaid. If you’re lucky enough, you will meet a Warsaw barrel organ player and listen to (very) old top hits.

Duration: 2 hour

Stop At:

Royal Route - it is one of the suggestions. Krakowskie Przedmieście is Poland’s capital, Warsaw’s best-known and most prestigious streets, surrounded by historic palaces, churches, and manor-houses. It links the Old Town and Royal Castle with some of the most notable institutions in Warsaw, including the Presidential Palace, Warsaw University, and the Polish Academy of Sciences, headquartered in the Staszic Palace. The direct southward extension of Krakowskie Przedmieście along the Royal Route is called Nowy Świat, with the famous palm tree at its end.

Duration: 2 hour

Stop At: Praga Polnoc

Praga district - it is one of the suggestions. The enigmatic Praga district sits on the Eastern side of the Vistula river. When the minibus crosses the river, one can see picturesque views of the wild riverside. Praga is the only district of Warsaw that survived the apocalypse of WWII - that's why it represents the picture of the pre-WWII city filled with belle-epoque buildings with small and noisy courtyards. Once neglected, it becomes a hip and artistic part of Warsaw, still not affected by commercial tourism.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Lazienki Krolewskie w Warszawie

Łazienki Royal Gardens - it is one of the suggestions. Łazienki Royal Gardens were designed in the 17th century as a baths park for nobleman Stanisław Herakliusz Lubomirski. In the 18th century, Poland’s last monarch, Stanislaus II Augustus, transformed the park into a setting for palaces, villas, classicist follies, and monuments. In 1918 it was officially designated a public park. Łazienki is visited by tourists worldwide and serves as a venue for music, the arts, and culture. The park is also home to peacocks and a large number of squirrels.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Warsaw Ghetto

Warsaw Jewish Ghetto - it is one of the suggestions. Muranów district is the witness of the tragedy of the Jewish Ghetto, created by german Nazis in 1940. The first impression is that it is just a regular neighbourhood filled with squared blocks of flats. But there is much more from the past to be discovered with the help of your guide. In the year 1943, when the last part of the Jewish community was about to be deported to the extermination camp, they created the underground resistance and started the insurrection against their oppressors. This fight took three weeks and resulted in the demolition of the Jewish district in Warsaw. The guide will uncover the covered layers from the past for you

Duration: 2 hour

Stop At: Palace of Culture and Science

Communist Warsaw - it is one of the suggestions. Unique retro minibus called Żuk (the beetle) - ten miles per gallon, wooden floor, and produced in communist Poland – all add a meaningful piece of reality to your experience. Each stop represents different parts of communist Poland’s history - from the dusk of WWII and post-war reconstruction of Warsaw through the rough ‘60s and ‘70s to the first free elections on the 4th of June 1989. Disclose the secrets of communist Poland, learn how people managed to survive in the central-steered economy and find relics from those days in Warsaw.

Duration: 2 hour

Stop At: Monument to the Warsaw Uprising Fighters

WWII Buffs - it is one of the suggestions. This program is a choice for those primarily interested in the history of World War II. Tyranny, resistance and gore would be the most appropriate words to describe that part of Polish history. From the remains of the street fights and two insurrections to Warsaw’s so-called 'liberation' by the Soviets in 1945. You'll learn about the battles, heroes and everyday life in Warsaw during the Nazi occupation, the political situation in the region that has changed diametrically throughout coupe years of WWII and the consequences that war has brought to Poland and Europe. Find buildings that may be considered war memorials due to the bullet holes, ricochets, lost souls, pieces of the Jewish Ghetto wall, hills of rubble, gloomy Umschlagplatz, Soviet tanks and aeroplanes. Travel through time thanks to stories you'll hear, combined with archival photographs and our Zuk retro minibus.
