Warsaw – holiday in Poland’s bohemian capital
Created by Mondo for Finnair
If you are thinking of a city break, keep this Warsaw city district in mind: Praga. While Warsaw might not be the most famous of travel destinations in Europe, it is just because the rising, bohemian Praga has so far been one of its best kept secrets.
While the rest of Warsaw was badly destroyed in World War II, Praga miraculously remained almost untouched. Now the old redbrick factory buildings and warehouses of Praga have been given a new lease of life as the hotspot of Warsaw’s urban culture. In their midst stand decorative Art Nouveau buildings.
The most interesting art galleries, cafés and best clubs to visit on your city break to Warsaw are in Praga. There is even a trampoline park in an old hangar. An independent cinema showing art films will give you a discount on your ticket if you arrive by bike.
And, since this is Poland, Praga also has an old distillery dating back more than one hundred years, serving currently as a vodka museum. A part of Warsaw if ever there was one!
You cannot help falling in love with graffiti-covered Praga, a diamond in the rough.
