Warsaw district of Praga as an example of revitalisation
Price: 25 EUR
Minimum: 10, Maximum: 40
A guided walk around Warsaw's right-bank district. Praga, formally attached to Warsaw in the late 18th century, for years was a secondary part of the city. Contrary to the left-bank part of the city, it was not destroyed much during the WW II. In the last decade it has been profoundly transformed: many of the old apartment blocks and post-industrial areas have been turned into cultural centres, galleries, pubs and lofts. During the walk, you will be able to observe several successful urban regeneration projects, as well as discuss main social challenges facing gentrifying Praga.
